Printer's typo makes church's Easter banner read, 'Chris is Risen'

YORK, England, March 29 (UPI) -- A typo by a British printer preparing materials for a local church's Easter service made one banner unintentionally hilarious, reading: "Chris is Risen."

Ned Lunn, assistant curate at Acomb Parish Church in York, England, said the printer prepared for Easter banners that were supposed to read the traditional Easter message, "Christ is Risen," but workers quickly noticed that one of the banners was missing a "t."

"Acomb Signs are celebrating something very different this Easter! Does anyone know of a dyslexic church who wants 4 banners proclaiming the news?" Lunn joked in a Facebook post.

Lunn said the printer had corrected banners printed in plenty of time for Sunday's service.

"It was a funny error [the printer] spotted and rectified in time. It was a funny incident shared between business and customer," Lunn told The Telegraph. "He promptly corrected [it] and gave me the proper ones. He is a great small business with a great sense of humor."

Lunn said the unintentional joke has some precedent at the church.

"The pastor at the Baptist Church is actually called Chris and he's got to get up for a sunrise service at 6:30 a.m. on Easter Sunday," he told the BBC. "His predecessor didn't manage to get up for the service last year."
