Leave it to a Wisconsin-based retailer to slip up on a piece of Minnesota Vikings merchandise.

A woman's T-shirt was bought off the rack at a Kohl's department store in Lino Lakes on Sunday, and the owner couldn't be more proud of the inscription on the front:

"Skol Vickings."

Mary Struwve was happy to spend the $27.20 (marked down from $34) for the typographically-challenged fashion statement that sports a Majestic manufacturer's label.

"I wanted to buy it because it was misspelled," Struwve said.

Struwve said a friend of hers found the same boo-boo on several of the shirts in a Mankato area Kohl's.

She said her friend alerted a clerk "and they pulled the whole rack."

Kohl's responded with a statement from company spokeswoman Jacquelyn Judkins: "We apologize for the misspelled merchandise and the inconvenience this may have caused. We are working with our vendor to take steps to remove the incorrect merchandise.

This side of the Minnesota-Wisconsin border had its own spelling brain cramp in the summer of 2014, when the Southdale Target in Edina was selling jersey-style shirts with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater's name across the back in big block letters: B-R-I-D-E-W-A-T-E-R.
