This is a heavyweight ceramic mug that holds 16 ounces of your favorite brew. It’s bright white, with the apostrophe imprint in bright red. This slogan has been our most popular T-shirt design and the apostrophe has been the most-mentioned punctuation mark when people send us e-mails detailing their pet punctuation peeves. Now this mug can sit on your desk at work or your kitchen table at home, where it will let everyone know it belongs to an apostrophe aficionado! Mugs are $24.95 (includes over $10 shipping per mug — they're heavy mugs!).
