What's an Anidiot?

I was drawn to the comments section after reading an internet news story this morning and found myself flinching at the grammatical mistakes I saw there. I understand that we're all human, we all make mistakes, and I've been accused of having bad grammar as well, to which I always reply, "My grammer's a nice lady. Leave her out of this!"

What irked me this time was the

"Your anidiot!"

Now, I'm not completely stupid, but my first thought was, "What's an anidiot?" Aha! Then I saw my error! I had forgotten to install my "Comentese" translator. Now if I had chosen to get involved in this particular thread of comments, I would have been tempted to assist our esteemed commenter by pointing out the error of his ways. Perhaps something like "I think that what you really mean is 'You're an idiot'" would do the trick, but past experience has taught me that If I had done so, I would have been exposed as the evil, over-educated, godless, liberal heathen that I am, and my attempt at improving his education would have been futile.

So, I'll relegate myself to ranting on my own blog, and making my own irreverent, politically incorrect, poetic prose of parting:

Here I sit, brokenhearted. I thought I'd make a comment, but I'm retarded.
