A meme gets it right.

You are the grammar Fuhrer. All bow to your authority. You will crush all the inferior people under the soles of your jackboots, and any who question your motives will be eliminated. Your punishment is being the bane of every other person's existence, because you're constantly contradicting stupidity. Everyone will be gunning for you. Your dreams of a master race of spellers and grammarians frighten the masses. You must always watch your back. If only your power could be used for good instead of evil.

What is your grammar aptitude? brought to you by Quizilla

And they didn't change the score when I used either "supposedly" or "supposably". Both are real words according to Merriam-Webster.

I'm also a grammer Fuhrer...

Funny though.... I don't usually like being compared to Herr Hitler.

You know, I thought my sense of humor could go to some pretty sick places, but I kept retrying the quiz until I could get a non-Fuhrer answer. I think you actually have to answer every question incorrectly before it'll give you a different result.

The other result, however, is actually disturbing.

There's actually three possible results.

I agree that they're disturbing, the quiz was more fun before I saw the other two pics.

Oh, that's disappointing. [Sighs] I do so loathe practical jokers. Staking out on an anthill ain't too good for the likes.

I refuse to accept "supposably" as a real word.

It would have a different meaning from "supposedly". Supposably must be from supposable, which means "able to be inferred on slight grounds" rather than supposed, meaning "believed" or "based primarily on surmise rather than adequate evidence". The semantic distinction between possibility and actuality is important.

I do have to wonder what the quiz writer was thinking. A very easy quiz and a very extreme set of results. Would you rather be der Fuhrer or oven fodder? I'll take oven fodder thank you.
