...There.

My original post had no grammatical errors at all, you only edited two words: i was being sarcastic when i called them favourites and i spell the word favourite like that because I'M NOT AN AMERICAN!!!!!!!!!
derp
That's actually incorrect.

You said "everybodies".

That's a compound word (every and body), with a possessive (that's the apostrophe-s that you used).

Let's not forget that you neglected to utilize the Oxford Comma, which might be considered a grammatical slipup. :P

So that means that, yeah, you had grammatical errors there. And I just changed the Canadian/British spelling to screw with you. ;)
Ok you win with the comma thing.

I win with the entire thing. Seriously, criticizing Americans when you can't even use the correct conjugation of a word in your own language... Totally unbelievable.

How do you win the entire thing, you only called me out in one area. And if you say I'm not using correct conjugation of a word the entire American nation is going down with me. You guys don't seem to believe in the letter u.

That's regional, and it's acceptable for American English.

There's no regional form of "everybody's". There's either "you're wrong" or "you're right," and in this case, "you're wrong" because you used the incorrect form of the conjugated pronoun.

Boom.

Please don't equate 'grammar nazi's' with 'America'; I have enough issues with our country already.

I believe in the letter u.

It's right here on my keyboard, staring at me; mocking me.

How about just, "Hey man, it's actually "everybody's," not "everybodies" and then just "oh yeah, you're right, thanks!"

WHY DO WE GOTTA FIGHT

I never thought I'd agree with a philosophy that sounds like it came from a drug induced stupor, but...Wait, no...I still haven't. It's not the fighting, it's the stupidity of it that gets my...chicken. Some things are worth fighting over, even with words across teh interwebs. Much as I shudder to claim that.

But not this. Truly, does it matter how Epicness spells the word? I'm not even going with a 'THERE ARE STARVING CHILDREN IN THE WORLD WHO WOULD BE GLAD FOR THAT WORD' argument; I don't think I need too. There's no way in Iceland it honestly matters how one person misspells (or otherwise) a word on the internet; at least not when the word is 'everybody'.

And this concludes my 6:50 AM half asleep rant. CK, thank you for the adorable goat image that will float in my head this morning as I sleep.

Guys, it matters because I'm sick of listening to the problems with America... from an Australian.

You know what the problem with Australia is?

Steve Irwin, except the animals there took care of it for you guys! :o

...Okay, that was tasteless, but seriously, everything there wants to kill you.

I feel I should tell you that, without pity or remorse, if you were within 20 feet of me upon saying that, you would instantly have a knife blade sheathed in some part of your body. Maybe an arm, maybe a leg, maybe a sternum. Depends.
