Unhip Ranker Rankles

I just saw on FaceBook one of those annoying click-bait surveys asking "How Hippie Are You?" in which one of the result comments used the misspelling "tie die."

If you can't spell "tie-dye" you're not hip enough to write a survey about hippieness. Everybody knows "tie die" is what happens when you get strangled by your neckwear.

At least it didn't use the misspelling “hippy” (see p. 143 of Common Errors in English Usage),
