"Correction" of "typo" destroys math joke

In a shocking development, an innocent math joke was destroyed this morning by a well-meaning “correction” of a “typo.” My department head put the following announcement into today’s Daily Announcements:
MATH TEAM: first official practice is Wednesday Sept 13
after school in Room 5. Everyone welcome. First meet is
October 5! (No, that's not October 12th.)
I scratched my head over that one. It turned out that the text had been “corrected” and was supposed to have read as follows:
MATH TEAM: first official practice is Wednesday Sept 13
after school in Room 5. Everyone welcome. First meet is
October 5! (No, that's not October 120th.)
