The Washington Post Express daily tabloid made a big mistake on Thursday's cover photo


There were two choices: Male, or female. They had a 50-50 chance of getting it right.

But the Washington Post Express got it very wrong when it published the common symbol associated with men on its cover story of the upcoming Washington Women's March, an event that has blossomed into a defiant counterpoint to the Trump presidency.

Capital-area publications rushed to Twitter to call out the Express on its oversight. 

Following the fallout, Express tweeted out the correct version of the cover photo.

But that didn't silence the mockery.

There was also a pop culture reference to Austin Powers. Yeah, baby. 

Lesson? Always remember to proofread. Everything.
