Some beary bad spelling...

This Cub Scout leader (or den mother? Is that what they're called?) should feel quite embarrassed for making such a heinous spelling error and then distributing it to children--many of whom, I suspect, are actually capable of correctly spelling the word that their leader misspelled.

PAULA says, "This is a picture of an actual flier that my son brought home from school. It is for an informational meeting about the Cub Scouts. I am torn as to whether I should find this hilarious or absolutely appalling. I think I will go with appalling since these people are putting themselves forth as role models for young children."



Looks like this Cub Scout pack leader wasn't there on the day everyone earned their spelling patches...

Thanks, PAULA, for spotting this mistake!
