Quorum of the Twelve Apostates



An Interesting Freudian Slip?



April 6, 2009 - Brigham Young University's student paper, the Daily Universe, made a very interesting typographical error.

Instead of typing the word 'apostles' into the caption of the photo published in their newspaper, somebody 'accidentally' slipped in the word 'apostates.' The caption reads the phrase as 'Quorum of the Twelve Apostates' rather than 'Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.'

Which by all accounts is hilarious.

But Brigham Young University is feeling the heat. And the local media are having a field day with the story.

Apparently, some 18,500 newspapers were recalled to be completely reprinted and students were simply notified to visit the newspaper's website until the new editions were published and distributed.

Haha, I feel sorry for the poor student copy editor. Not a very good resume-builder.
