Now, here at Georgetown Univeristy, we pride oursevles at our renowend intellegnece. We are one of the top univeristies in the counrty and this one litle speeling mishap should not besmicrh our good name. I am sure that the univeristy will rectfiy this eror very soon once it is brouhgt to their atentoin.

The fact that nobdoy notcied this befroe futrher supprots the theory of Typoglycemia: as long as the frist and lsat letrtes of a word stay in their corrcet place, the lettres in bewteen can be in any order and pepole can still read them just fine.

This is why the world needs copy editors. Hopefluly, when we get back in Augsut, this sign will be fixed. Only time will tell.
