University in Kansas Spells Its Own Name Wrong and The Whole Town Gets In On The Joke
Caitlin McGehee noticed something curious on her alma mater’s water tower that was too funny not to share.
Really, WSU? You’re an institution of higher education and you can’t even spell your own name right? Students especially got a kick out of it.
Here are some of the choicest responses:

The water tower’s run didn’t last too long, though. As soon as the social media action caught the city’s attention, somebody was on the way to fix the typos.
DON'T CHANGE IT. The logical fix is to rename the university. https://t.co/0IDgsTQ4gX— Celia Llopis-Jepsen (@Celia_LJ) August 4, 2017
