Let’s talk about English facts!

Here’s something grammar nerds already know: you can make a perfectly correct English sentence using only the word “buffalo.” In fact, you can string as many “buffalo”s together as you like without using any other words, and it’s still grammatically correct.

Oh. That's cool. 

Yeah! It's really cool! So cool that we thought for sure some other grammar nerds out there would already have made a Buffalo magnetic poetry set. But they didn’t.

We wanted a way to make all of these creative, original sentences, but the minimum order size for custom magnets was a lot.

That’s where you come in.

Okay, so tell us about this magnet set.

In this set, we’re including it all: nouns, verbs, proper nouns, noun phrases, relative clauses, verb phrases, and all the punctuation you need to express yourself to the buffaloth degree. In total there are 150 buffalos in the set, and we know you’ll find a use for ALL of them.

Order before the Kickstarter ends, and we'll buffalo you the set in time for the holidays! (guarantee is for US backers only)

You can also get the Emoji Add-On Pack, a colorful set of magnets sure to brighten your day. Choose from the buffalo emoji, the buffalo emoji, and more!

Also get this limited edition, 11x17, Recursive Buffalo Poster!

Why would I want a set where every word is the same?

We’ve compiled a list of helpful reasons:

1. Thinking is hard! Our brains are actually better suited for things like procreating and eating. Constructing sentences is not what they are built for.

2. We live in the Information Age! Our brains are overused. So having one less thing to think about will help you feel more relaxed in and around your kitchen (or wherever you choose to spread our magnetic love).

3. If you lose pieces to the set, you’ll still be able to form all the sentences.

4. Our set has a delightful cheeky playfulness!

Is the Buffalo sentence an exception to Rule 34?

Hush.

Why wait? Get your set now!

We're just two friends working together to make something fun. If you like it, we'd appreciate if you could tell your friends, share on social media, and order some sets as gifts.

Thanks!
Mike & Rob

 

Risks and challenges

We need to order the magnets, and a delay in shipping from the magnet company could affect our timeline. We've built in excess days and plan to order our first magnet run halfway through the campaign, so don't anticipate this to be a problem.
