Re: he, she, it, apes and monkeys

He is a monkey. She is a monkey. It is a monkey. They is a monkey ... Nope... They are a monkey.

Hmmm... "is" is used in singular cases whilst "they" is used in the case of plurals. Therefore "they" must refer to more than one. Great! logic can get you into all sorts of shit when you try to apply it to English.
