Not mementi mori

I try not to be shocked by what to me are glaring errors of usage in print, soothing myself with the reflection that times have changed, no one studies the classical languages any more, and you can't tie the present to the millstone of the past.

I try to be shocked and bemused, it gives me something to do. Suffice to say, the plural of "memento mori" isn't "mementi mori" because you can't do that to Latin words.
