I didn't remember that we had gotten this as a SoC submission and was
originally horrified that we had something like this on some of our
merchandise. Having since been reminded of where this came from I still
don't like it much (the lack of grammaticality is painful to read) but can
appreciate the humor in it.

I think if we wanted to go this route with our merchandise we should
continue to do so and include stuff that says "Pidgin - Its all fooling
blabber." and "Pidgin - I can't understand you worth a pancake." to round
out the set. (I like these because beyond being inside jokes they also
work with the whole pidgin language thing we've got going.)
