Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
This "Universal Overmind" character is an obvious impostor! The real Universal Overmind would never refer to freds as "the freds".

It was established long ago, during the MOAB's early days, that "freds" is singular, plural, and communal. One member of the species is simply "freds", not "a fred". A dozen of them are "freds", not "a dozen freds". And the entire species is simply "freds", not "the freds".

That the real Universal Overmind would make such a blatant cosmogrammatical error is utterly inconcievable. Therefore, we can only conclude that some dipwad is trying to jerk us around and MOABites don't jerk easily!
