Vikings Online Typo Makes For Funny T-Shirt Offer
Ahh, we all make them from time to time, but when you're the Minnesota Vikings and you misspell one little word on your Facebook page, it makes for a pretty funny offer.
We're all insanely busy these days, right? And thanks to those supposedly-helpful autocorrect features on our devices, updating our social media sites quickly can sometimes come back and bite us.
Which is apparently what happened to the official Minnesota Vikings Facebook page early Thursday morning. And, hey, I'm not judging because I've made a TON of typos while trying to update various online sites too, but this one was pretty funny.
Shout-out to my buddy Tom who noticed that this week's special T-shirt offer on the Vikings Facebook page contained a typo. A typo that happens when you're trying to type the word 'shirt' but you leave out one important letter.
Get where I'm going with this? That's right, the post from the Vikings Facebook page read, "We're throwing it back this weekend! A $25 donation to the Minnesota Vikings Foundation will get you this commemorative sh-t honoring the 1969 squad."
I don't know about you, but I have enough commemorative 'shirts'! (And more than enough of the other word too...). Tom reported that the post containing the typo with the naughty word was up on the Vikings page for about 35 minutes Thursday before it was quickly taken down and replaced with the correct wording.
