Oops.

The Seattle Times issued a swift fix after posting a map of the South missing one big thing: Mississippi.

PAST: As if Atlanta traffic wasn’t bad enough, now Alabama’s making fun of us. ALABAMA. 

Oklahoma television reporter Wendy Suares noticed the omission with a hurricane graphic and pointed it out via Twitter:

The Times was quick with the fix but people were quicker with the memes:

And TBH  no one’s real mad about it.

We all make mistakes, and journalists pointing this out out do so at the risk of angering the correction gods. It’s a matter of time before I goof up.

For now thanks for the chuckle, Seattle Times, even if it was inadvertent. See ya next time I’m in the great state of Oregon!
