Are You Their?

Official Blog Observer Joe Nathan Snerdley repeatedly admonishes me for my incorrect usage of "their" and "there" while writing the Ford Retort (thankfully, I don't have a problem with "they're"...that's just ignorant).

For your benefit, and to reinforce what I know, "their" is a possessive pronoun while "there" is used as an introductory subject and adverb. For example:
  • "Who lifted their LSD?"
  • "Hey look, Snerdley just dropped a hot dog over there."
