Man I hate it when people use the pronoun “you” as a singular pronoun in an informal setting. “You” is plural, unless thou dost speak to an unfamiliar person. The correct singular second person pronoun is “thou” in most cases. Grammar never changes. Pronouns must always stay one way until the end of time. Learn thy proper English. *sigh* Kids these days.
If thou this mistake shouldst make on thine own blog, then know, villain, that thou art a dirty descriptivist, and no friend of mine. Ne’er should language itself alter, it doth remain fixèd as such, untouch’d by change. Wouldst thou, vile descriptivist, that we forget the heritage of our great tongue? Nay, say I. Thou art but a dickhead who sayest so.

I just laughed so hard I spat…“juice”…at my computer.
Thank you for that. I dearly needed respite from the tribulations of attempting to navigate the mercurial seas of modernity. I cannot tell how many times I have left anonymous comments on websites misusing this tongue in a desperate attempt to correct misperceptions of antiquated language, or merely to stick fast to that which falls away. It is valuable to remember that all things must move, progress, change. The minute one forgets this, one becomes “old”.
