I'm not in the mood for the toys, or games, or kidding. I'm not in the mood for clans. I'm not in the mood for gangs. I'm not in the mood for none of that stuff there. This is gonna be a Cosa Nostra 'til I die. Be it an hour from now, or be it tonight, or a hundred years from now when I'm in jail. It's gonna be a Cosa Nostra. This ain't gonna be a bunch of your friends, they're gonna be friends of ours. But at the same time would be friends of ours, it's gonna be the way I say it's gonna be, a Cosa Nostra. A Cosa Nostra.

Sometimes it's an intentional spelling error, all the cool kidz are doing it. People who correct my spelling/grammar annoy me.

Don't mess with the Grammar Mafia...

I have multiple members in my own family - giving me grief for my grammar faux pas...

Thank you Woot community!

Red seems to be the definitive power propaganda color. Add that to the threatening angle of the pencils and people will just back away and use their commas properly (while they can see you).

I don't get it.

What's an errorist? And what does Cosa Nostra have to do with grammar?

Poor Alberto, still this Cosa Nostra Grammarfather ain't got nothin' on the real Godfather.

I think all the years of having my can't-spell-to-save-his-life brother has dulled my outrage at other people's grammar and spelling mistakes....Still I kinda can't resist

"grammer"? Or is that on purpose somehow?

Is this official? If I wear it, can I can I whack someone for saying "heith" instead of "height" and writing "It was raining like cat's and dog's"?

Yes, you can. I fully intend to exercise that right.

Cool design, yo. But what's that thin stick thing they're holding? Do they use it to poke the backspace key?

This was an auto-buy for me (in fact, there are two more that are from this derby as well). I spent all day yesterday yelling at people to use the apostrophe in Valentine's Day [I saw six different posters for evening events at the campus where I work, and it was all I could do not to print out a poster to plaster over them: "This event has been eradicated while the students spend the evening reviewing punctuation rules"]. I decided that might be a bit much, but when I wear this shirt, I will feel totally justified in taking that and other extreme actions.

I want ALL the shirts. Couldn't you please carry them in larger sizes? I promise to buy them. You could outfit my whole summer wardrobe! C'mon! You know you wanna help a gal out. I would totally rock this shirt.

"Er, boss, I think you mean 'using "like" as a coordinating conjunction.'"

I'm a copy editor. This was an instabuy.

I look forward to being detained by TSA whilst wearing this shirt, in the relative near future.

Suck it, Trebek.

The misuse of cyrillic on that one angers the grammar communist in me.

I need this. I need this shirt. This shirt desires to come home with me and let the world know how committed it should be to proper punctuation, spelling, and syntax. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go let my husband know where to find a perfect post-Valentine's gift.

The pencil should be BLUE.

Editing is also called "blue penciling". Light blue was used in editing so that the error could be fixed with white out and the editing notes would not be picked up by the copying machine.

Woot, why don't you use AA shirts anymore? I prefer to buy shirts made in USA, so thank you for listing the COO in the specs.

I'm just this guy... ya know?

I know two HS Language Arts teachers that would LOVE these, and several INTENSIVE READING Teachers at the same school that would wear them just to PROVE a point to the students. Would YOU consider selling them for 50% off to Educators, since they are some of the lowest paid professions in the USA? Just think about it, Please, and let me know.

Alberto didn't end a sentence with a preposition; he ended a sentence with a particle. For the love of grammar!

The political scientist/language geek in me is amused by the mixture of archetypes represented in this t-shirt image. (Yes, I bought one.)

Love the artwork. Almost got the padlock flying off my wallet, but the mafia slogan seems a little incongruous with the communist propaganda artwork. Had it been in Spanish instead, I would not have been able to resist this shirt. If it comes out in a 2nd edition, let me know. Even something as simple as "Viva La Grammatica" would entice me.

I humbly appeal once more for an increased range of sizes.

I would like to be separated from my money, while wearing fabulous t-shirts, if you please.

The rule against ending your sentence with a preposition is a made-up rule by English teachers, frustrated after years of trying to teach sentence completion, because they wanted their students' writing to be clear. An accomplished writer can end a sentence with a preposition, especially as most prepositions also function as adverbs.
