University Misspells Own Name on Bags Given to Students

There's nothing more ironic than an institution of higher learning misspelling its own damn name.

Missouri State University (er, Univeristy) in Springfield, Mo. handed out thousands of canvas bags to students last month, proudly bearing a typo that switched the "s" and second "i" in "university." According to the Springfield News-Leader, a total of 17,800 bags were ordered; the typo appears on nearly half (about 8,500) of the bags. MSU spent $70,844 on the bags and since the error was the school's fault, none of the cost can be recouped.

Furthering the beautiful irony, the bags were given to students free of charge when they picked up their books for the new semester. The error went unnoticed until a student (who deserves all A's this semester for outsmarting the school) brought it to the attention of bookstore employees. Rather than limit the chances of a potentially embarrassing story getting out, bookstore employees decided to keep handing out the bags because, why not?

I Wonder if Missouri State University is considered to be a party school for dumb kids.  Well, if it wasn't before then it probably will be now.
