Handmaid's Tale Inspired - Nolite te bastardes carborundorum - Coffee Mug - 10 oz Travel Mug Ceramic Tumbler


Technically speaking, “Nolite te bastardes carborundorum”—a phrase found in Margaret Atwood’s novel The Handmaid’s Tale and, —means nothing. It’s a made-up phrase in mock Latin—a schoolboy’s joke, as it’s explained in both the novel and the TV series. It would roughly translate to “don’t let the bastards grind you down.”

Available in 3 sizes:

11 oz Measures 3.75” tall
15 oz Measures almost 4.75” tall
10 oz Eco Tumblers

So awesome. Exactly as advertised. Also, I asked the seller to do me a solid and ship it ASAP and she did so immediately, which I so appreciated! Highly recommend this seller and this shop. <3

Great item. Had some struggles with shipping, but it seems like it was the post office's fault, and she was awesome about it and handled it quickly and efficiently!

So so glad the mug arrived, my friend absolutely loves it. The button was such a sweet addition and so well received. We actually collect buttons from places we’ve been and this is so perfect. Thank you so much for everything! ♥️♥️♥️

Can’t wait to gift these mugs to my ladies!
