Maria Alquilar was commissioned by the city of Livermore, California to paint a mural for the local library. After finishing the mural and collecting her $40,000 for the job, library staff noticed that 11 of the 175 words in her piece were misspelled including the names of Einstein, Shakespeare, and van Gogh. Alquilar agreed to fix the spelling mistakes for $6,000. Now you know why education is so important.

  1. Wow, that girl’s got something going. She could misspell everything again, and get them to pay her MORE. God, this capitalistic, brainwashed, dumbed-down country is so wonderful.
