Sex chat number accidentally printed on O.C. elementary school shirts

Officials at a Yorba Linda elementary school have recalled T-shirts given to students after discovering a phone number printed on the shirts was for a sex chat line.

A parent informed the district of the phone number -- an 800 number featured next to the school's mascot.

"It was an innocent mistake," Rosemary Gladden, public information officer for Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District, told the Orange County Register. "Parents have been very understanding."

The shirt was part of a fundraiser that generated $25,000. The principal of the school described the situation as a "typographical error." The 800 number on the T-shirt spells out something, and apparently no one checked to see whose number it actually was.

And what does it spell out?

Maybe Mike Duvall's phone number?

Who can guess what it is. Bragging rights to the winner!

An accident? Yeah right. Seem like an underhanded attempt to corrupt the minds of children. Aren't you all tired of the school shootings, stabbings, murders, poisoning, ect? Just keep trying to corrupt those young minds and continue to feel those same minds you corrupt won't turn back on you someday. Your rude awakening draws nearer.

it has been a stressful week - thanks for the relief, how funny is that?

"An innocent mistake", a "typographical error" of a sex chat line on T-shirts for young kids, what a coincidence? These types of "mistakes" happen all too often, and we should all be outraged at the frequent victimization of our children. Somebody needs to be held responsible for these so called mistakes.

Everything is in the details: God, the devil, success, incompetence.

Forgive me for seeing humor in this, but I'm LMAO.
