9. Go Jays … We Think
Another example of a garment that needs spellcheck is this jersey was supposed to be a sign of support for the favorite Major League baseball team, the Toronto Blue Jays. The Canadian team has been a part of the American League Division of the professional sport since 1977. The logo in the corner features a small red Maple Leaf and pays homage to the Canadian flag. The name not only honors the bird of the same name, but it also falls in line with the traditional hue used in Toronto professional sports.
Well, “blue” it is not. A customer took to Twitter to voice her displeasure about the mistake (via Insider). Nevertheless, several people comment that it may not be a switch of the two letters, but instead, the merchant used the French spelling of the color – “bleu” – and urged her to keep the jersey. Others poked lighthearted fun, saying that they liked “bleu cheese.” Either way, it is a lesson in the importance of learning more about a company before you purchase from them (via Insider).
