Since graduation season is more or less in full bloom, you knew it was either going to be some dumbass shit breaking out at a commencement, or some ironic yet asinine spelling snafu. Graduates in Kelso, Washington got the lead joke for reunions to come when their diplomas were presented bearing the state seal of Oregon on the cover. The students could breath a sigh of relief, as the high school diplomas themselves were correct.
Kelso superintendent Glenn Gelbrich said the matter was an ordering error, that was discovered after the ceremony had started. Okay, fair enough on the ordering mishap, but seriously, what the hell on the rest? I believe this is a detail that bears checking in advance, or did the diplomas arrive as people were still being seated?
Then again, I've probably jinxed them now. They'll get the cover right next year, only the diploma will read class of 2061 or some shit. Whichever. Welcome to the real world, kids...
