Jesus freak

Thanks to Dennis A for being the first of many to send this one in.

It appears that none of us is safe from the typo demons; even officials at The Vatican.

This medal, produced by the Italian State Mint to celebrate Pope Francis's papacy, has the word Jesus spelt Lesus.


When you remember that, in Latin script, the word Jesus may be spelt as Iesus, then mistaking a capital I for an L is, I suppose, understandable.

However, considering it's The Vatican's marketing people who are selling the medal, you'd think they'd know not to substitute an L for an I.

Surely they, more than anyone else, would know it should be an I for an I.
