This is where I went to school.
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.
I remember once upon a time they paid tens of thousands of dollars for a big tile in the sidewalk right in front of the administration building in which they misspelled the word “succeed.” *sigh*
