The revenge-T-shirt with Sheldon
The Revenge-T-shirt with Sheldon is one of several T-shirts, found on various websites. It shows the sentence bortaS bIr jablu'DI' reH QaQqu' nay', translated to Revenge is a dish best served cold. Unfortunately it contains one spelling mistake.

The background image shows some celestial bodies of our solar system and the character "Dr. Sheldon Cooper" from the TV series "The Big Bang Theory", who has quoted this sentence in Klingon in the episode "The Creepy Candy Coating Corollary" (S3E05) .

Error analysis

Instead of bIr (cold) the T-shirt shows blr - that is the letters BLR instead of BIR. Spelling like this does not make any sense and contradicts the Phonology of Klingon. The mistake probably happened because in some fonts the upper case I ("eye") is not distinguishable from the lower case l ("ell"). Maybe this difference wasn't recognized by the graphic designer of this shirt.
