The Alot is Better Than You at Everything

As much as I try to be a grammatically conscientious person, sometimes my inferior understanding of the English language demotes me to fall victim to the infamous grammar Nazis on the internet.  It didn’t matter how much I tried in school to memorize spelling and grammar.  I suppose it happens to the best of us.

So in light of all that, someone asked me to create the amazing Alot!  He was originally created by Allie Brosh over at Hyperbole and a Half, a hilarious web comic.  One of her readers asked me to make the Alot for them.  He was fun to make and I think he turned out great!  Check him out.

He really is better than you at everything.  Even my cat.  He is better than my cat.  As you can see my cat is trying to be better than the Alot, but he just simply inferior to the awesomeness of the Alot.  My cat has a lot of issues with this.

    Love it! =) thanks Alot!

  2. kate Says:

    This is adorable! I showed it to my sister (who happens to be an english teacher) and she wants one for her desk! Such a wicked idea!

  3. Jennifer Ankney Says:

    I want one. Where can I get one?

  4. marti Says:

    alot has alot going for it! alot is way cooler in 3D than 2D. I don’t suppose alot is riding on alot’s success?
    running out of coolness adjectives for your plushie work here!

  5. Kizmo Says:

    LOVE IT!!

  6. grammar dude Says:

    That is very awesome. I hate to be the one to say it though, but you don’t use an apostrophe to pluralize. Nazis is plural, Nazi’s refers to ownership.

  7. Alix Says:

    @grammar dude Dangit! I knew it was only a matter of time :) I’m not changing it.

  8. Jenn Says:

    Any chance you’re making more alots? I’m furiously searching for a stuffed alot and yours is amazing!

  9. Sohl Says:


    You’ve really stumbled onto something here… Allie’s Alot comic may be more popular than you know. I think there are a lot of people who would die to own one of your stuffed alots, and if Allie links to your Etsy for it, you could make a lot of money (you could make alot of money too, but it would probably cost quite a bit)!

    All this to say… I was casually searching for a plush alot and yours is brilliant and I for one would buy one in an instant! So please give us the opportunity! :)

  10. Alix Says:

    @ Sohl Allie’s comics/blog is awesome and I was really excited to make this Alot when someone commissioned it. I have tried contacting Allie directly but haven’t heard anything back. Either way, I hope she enjoys it!

  11. Sara Says:

    I will pay good money for an Alot. Seriously. Can I order one?

  12. World’s Strangest | The Proliferation of a Virtual Species: You’ll Like This Alot Says:

    [...] Alix was requested to make an alot by a friend, and came through with this awesome plush toy. See more pictures at her site Arixystix. [...]

  13. Joi Says:

    I agree with several commenters here: I want an Alot, and would be happy to pay for one! IT’S SO CUTE!!! And squishy!! <3 <3 <3

  14. Ryan Says:

    I am seriously interested in ordering one of these from you. Please let me know if we can work something out.

  15. Emma Says:

    Is there anyway I could get a pattern for an Alot from you?

  16. Jen Says:

    Your Alot is adorable! I would love to buy one if you every start selling them. Please let me know!

  17. Erica Says:

    ADORABLE. My roommate and I just LOL’d!

  18. Natalie Says:

    This is BRILLIANT, and looks to be beautifully made as well. I also love the pic with cat.

  19. Twila Says:

    You should contact Allie Bosh and work out a business deal with her to make and sell them and give her a cut for it being her creation. I’d love one, and I bet they’d sell well!

  20. Humorless Grammar Nazi Says:

    Grammar “Nazi’s”???? Surely you mean grammar *Nazis*. TO THE REMEDIAL GRAMMAR CAMPS WITH HIM!

  21. Alix Says:

    @Twila I have tried contacting her just to share my creation with her, but I haven’t heard back :(

  22. Alix Says:

    @Humorless Grammar Nazi LOL I’m totally not gonna change it now :P

  23. Jackie Says:

    This might just be the coolest plushy I’ve ever seen! If you’d be willing to sell them (and ship them to Germany), I’d absolutely want one! I hope you know how very, very talente you are :)

  24. MikeDamrat Says:

    i need this alot

  25. Boogra Says:

    I came here because I saw the grammar beacon, just to tell you that there is no apostrophe after the plural usage of Nazi, and that the use of an apostrophe indicates ownership, rather than multiples.

    However, I see that someone else has beaten me to it. Therefore, I won’t tell you that.

    Have a nice day. I like your Alot.

  26. Avocet Says:

    Oh, I hope Allie lets you sell these! You could sell… alot. (Sorry.)

  27. Elizabeth Says:

    Oh my GOODNESS.
    I would give almost anything for an Alot, or the pattern…any chance you would be willing to share?
