Why Proofreading Is Important

George Mason University wanted to honor the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, so they announced a plan to rename their law school the “Antonin Scalia School of Law.”

How nice…Except no one thought to read the acronym out loud first:

ASSLAW

Oops.

After being the butt of numerousĀ jokes on social media (see what I did there?), the university changed the proposed name to theĀ “Antonin Scalia Law School.”

See, proofreading is important, folks.
