It seems as though someone at the New York Times got slightly confused about how to spell 'Cork', and we can only assume they were thrown by a strong Rebel County accent.

Author Gavin Corbett posted a clip from the newspaper after he noticed that a hilarious correction was made about the location in a wedding notice.

"The vows column last Sunday, about the marriage of Sunny Jacobs and Peter Pringle, misspelled the name of the city in Ireland where Ms. Jacobs had a speaking engagement. It is Cork, not Quark."

Quark is a type of soft cheese that for some reason we can't comprehend, Americans are mad about.


Sure look, we all have our off days, but somebody defo had Brie on the brain.
