"Yeshurah" or "How Not to Spell Yeshua" - Mistaken Hebrew/Aramaic T-Shirt on Zazzle

Image used for criticism under Fair Use Doctrine.

The owner of the design claims that it says "Yeshua." However, this is another case of buyer beware:

However, what was written was this. "Yeshra."

Ironically, this could be interpreted in Aramaic as the imperfect 3rd person masculine singular of the verb שרע shra` which means.... and here's the kicker:

"He's going to slip up."

And he did. ;-)
