This May Have Upset the LDS, But It Made My Day

Chris Heard and Doug Chaplin both point to an unfortunate error in Brigham Young University’s student newspaper, which referred to a group of Mormon leaders (known as the “Quorum of Twelve Apostles”) as the “Quorum of Twelve Apostates.” I understand why some folks might be upset, and the paper was quite right to issue a prompt clarification and apology, but it appears to be an honest misspelling rather than a blatant attack, and therefore is pretty hilarious. 😉

Doug also mentions a few other especially amusing newspaper errors; I won’t give them here so as to prolong the suspense while you head over to his blog to check them out.
