As the owner of The Lost Ogle and a promotions coordinator for KFOR, I know it's hypocritical for me to make fun of another group's typos. That's why we created the TLO Typo Disclaimer Rule, and recently stopped printing all of our blog posts on Hanes beefy t-shirts. I'm thinking Yukon Middle School may want to follow our lead.
As students are funneling back into the classrooms, many organizations are working hard to make sure their school spirit shows.
However, one local school district is getting new t-shirts after an ironic mistake was printed on them.
Parents of students at Yukon Middle School recently noticed an error on their new t-shirts.
This shirt includes the slogan, “Execellence in Education.”
That's embarrassing, but on a positive note, at least they got the school's name right. Well, at least I think they did. They're one tiny triangle from being "Yuhon Middle School."
Anyway, let's see how the school district is going to explain this one? I wonder if they'll blame it on Mustang like everything else...
The Yukon Public Schools superintendent says the shirts were created by a parent-teacher organization as a fundraiser.
However, he says the misspelling was a mistake by the printer, not the organization.
He says the shirts were selling so fast that the error wasn’t immediately noticed.
Fortunately, he says the company has accepted responsibility for the mishap and is printing new t-shirts. Anyone who purchased the shirt will be able to exchange it for a new one.
That's nice. They must have used Scapegoat Screenprinting and Design and obviously not a decent OKC screen printing company. However, they're my favorite local screenprinter. I think their slogan is "We fall on the sowrd, so you don't have to."
