I hate to be the English teacher here, but there is no apostrophe in "weapons." Instantly ruins the effect.

In his defence though, he is right -- about the typo on warriors, not weapons -- not the lost effect.

Just for the record, I noted the grammar error too, but I let it pass, on the grounds that it could be considered a "Grocer's Apostrophe", intentionally thrown in to make the salesman look a bit seedier.

I considered it analogous to writers who use dialect when their characters are speaking to each other.

But for everyone's benefit, I leave you with these instructions:

The Jedi mind-tricks work on me, apparently. I don't see any superfluous apostrophes anymore, and Anakin looks like it's spelled right too. [crazy]
