The real princess’s tomb mystery

The brainiacs who work on the Yahoo! front page claim there’s a mystery — and they’re right! But the mystery isn’t about a princess’s tomb or a 8,500-year-old murder. It’s about the person who wrote this on yahoo.com:

The mystery? How the heck do you write something like that and still have a job? Didn’t you learn in the fourth grade that the possessive of princess is princess’s? Didn’t you learn 8,500-old makes no sense? Didn’t you learn the basics of writing and proofreading?

    Don’t you know anything? That is directly translated from the original hieroglyphics, including the punctuation.

    You obviously didn’t go to Electoral College.

      Eric, I am absolutely humiliated by my ignorance of the intricacies of punctuation in hieroglyphics. Thank you for pointing out my obvious shortcomings. You’re right when you say I didn’t attend Electoral College, but I did graduate from School of Thought. Right after finishing School of Fish.
