(Roanoke Times)   When typing the word "Virginia" on anything public, it's wise to double-check your speling. Especially if it's for a college diploma   (roanoke.com ) divider line

Man, I wish I could find that Far Side comic.  You know the one.

I am totally gonna start selling T-shirts with "I GRADUATED FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF VAGINA" on them.

They will be very popular with people who could never get laid under any circumstances whatsoever.

FTFA: And, Carpenter noted, the university regrets the error and any inconveinience it has caused.

Wait, that should be inconvenience.


Heh. One of my teammates had "inconvenience" inadvertently auto-corrected to "incontinence" in an Outlook email to a DL. Many LOLs ensued.

Change that to University of West Vagina and it rolls off the tongue better.  Wait, I mean...fark it.

I was really hoping for vagina, but got Virgina instead.

Ah, Radford.  A respectable school, that one.

Heeeey Radford is my school, and I'm glad to see this show up on Fark! I got my undergrad from Radford and I'm currently working on a masters here as well, but my boyfriend just graduated with his degree this past May and he will be getting his misspelled diploma any day now. They sent out emails blaming some new software update... bullshiat. This school has a long history of doing stupid things like this.

I suppose sum lesson were learned here?

2013-06-26 03:27:10 AM  
I believe the proper spelling is Vajinny. Unervisiddy o' Vajinny would be the proper classical rendering.
 
2013-06-26 03:29:19 AM

It's the fault of the commercial software company that sold us the diploma printing software! Because, uh, we had to reinstall it. And, uh, if we hadn't had to reinstall it, we'd never have had to re-type your diplomas and forget to spell-check them!

This surprised exactly zero Virgina residents.

My high school was determined to be a "National School of Excellence", and had that proudly stamped onto the yearbook covers.

They failed to spell "Excellence" correctly.

I used to live in North Vagina, before moving to Whale's Vagina. I miss going mullet hunting at WalMart.

We all were.

Boring typo is boring.  Subby must move his lips or whispers when he reads, because it's close enough when you say it out loud.

They mis-spelled "therto"--oh the humanity.

In the grand scheme of things, doesn't really matter, colleges are handing out degrees at ever accelerating rates. Except of course degrees that matter, such as MDs, engineering degrees, etc. These "degrees" like so many will join the masses--completely irrelevant.  The real irony will occur when the people producing/framing these diplomas need a diploma to do so.

/at that point run

2013-06-26 04:54:15 AM  
What the hell was "therto" a misspelling of? Hitherto? Therefore?

How much would you love a framed diploma from Vagina.  West Vagina, North Vagina.  Vagina School of Refrigerator Repair.  I want that shirt.

If you ask me: Virgina is the best kind of 'gina. It's still got, like, that new cat smell...

I was typing "new car smell" but typo'd "cat". I can live with that...

That's not such a bad thing. Public masturbation is seriously frowned upon.

Trust me.

I know.

sendtodave: Ah, Radford.  A respectable school, that one.


Being from NJ, whenever I see "RU" on a care down here in the DC area I momentarily think "Great, another
Rutgers grad".

Invariably, though, its somebody with a Radford tag. For a long time, I thought Radford was one of these
faith-based institutions like Jerry Falwell's old diploma mill Liberty University, but it turns out that its a pretty
good school.

Not as good as Rutgers, but what school is?

I work with a couple of Radford alums, and to judge from them it can't be all that bad.
 
2013-06-26 08:43:34 AM  
I like how some whiny kids that went to Radford somehow believe misspellings on their diplomas invalidate their education.

I wish I could work up enough energy to give a fark about something like that. I don't even know where my college diploma is.

FTFA - "Meghan McNeice commented on Twitter.

"Well I sure hope my thousands of dollars is going to cover a reprint of my diploma! Way to go Radford Virginia isn't that hard to spell.." McNeice tweeted."


Punctuation, on the other hand...

I'm surprised Radford students caught it.

THIS. It's Radford. Why is anyone suprised at all? Why do you all think Radford U. is in the middle of nowhere? Fences are expensive.
