What the hell is ‘teh’?

At first I thought it was the product of too much fast typing, but it’s starting to appear all over the damn internet.

I’ve been told by a reliable teenage source that ‘teh’ is the cool version of ‘the’. An intentional misspelling, or emphasis, perhaps.

I think I’ve officially transitioned into the ‘elderly’ category – I just can’t for the life of me see the cool factor in a typo word which sounds like some illiterate fool spitting.

But that’s me.
