  1. i am outraged that there isn’t one for “your, you’re.” i find that one particularly infuriating. get rid of the figuratively one and put that one instead.

  2. Unfortunately, the less/fewer mug perpetuates the myth that ‘less sugar lumps’ would be incorrect. It’s not. Some may find it clumsy, more will have been taught it is wrong – but it isn’t. Using ‘less’ in situations where ‘fewer’ is often said to be preferred has been standard English usage since the time of Alfred the Great and can be easily shown to be in common usage today. The notion that ‘less’ is incorrect in a construction like ‘Less cards have driven past than I expected’ has never been a formal part of English grammar, either.

    Cool mugs otherwise, though.
