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

It's generally not considered wise to criticize the Honorable Snaggy and Nitrozac in one's first post ...

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]
