Get the alright mug.
An alternate spelling of all right.

Although sometimes considered improper English, it is a completely logical contraction. The words altogether and already are similar contractions that are widely accepted.
Alright isn't a word for retards. It'll be a real English word in dictionaries a few years down the road.

People that criticize the use of the word "alright" are probably guilty of scores of grammatical errors anyway, like everyone who speaks the English language.

1. "No self-respecting editor would allow 'alright' to be used in a novel, nor any English teacher would allow it in an essay, but when it comes to popular culture, I guess it's all right."

2. Akane: "Ranma, are you alright?"
