    Association of the Sacred Heart got changed to Ass of the Sacred Heart and for a long time nobody noticed.

  • The print edition of my university's schedule of classes (where all times for every class are given) lists courses named "Real Anal I" and "Real Anal II". I laughed quite hard when I first saw that.

    There are a lot of disappointed teenagers out there who weren't expecting videos of maths lectures.

    "Ass of the Sac Hrt" may have been funnier :)
