THREE O' DEMS

Often in the Homestar Runner Universe a character will use a plural noun in a phrase where it would normally be expected to be singular. This is particularly used in the context of compound adjectives involving numbers, such as saying "a two-years-old boy" instead of "a two-year-old boy". In addition, this is occasionally done to an already plural word, such as "thems" and "peoples".
