Muppets - is this humor or an in-joke?

I was looking at this photo I took of the pin-up calendar at Muppetvision 3-D, and noticed something odd:

Just below Miss PIggy, someone wrote "June." However, the calendar is a July calendar. The fine print below the 4th says Independence Day and the 1st says Canada Day. (Click on the photo to see a larger version.)

Does anyone know if this has any special meaning, or if it's just a joke?

And in case you're wondering, the calendar is on the wall in the security guard's office just inside the attraction entrance.

I'm going to guess it's some sort of gag towards Miss Piggy. It kind of goes with the theme of the show with Miss Piggy's constant misfortune. Maybe B Bunny "accidentally" wrote June on the calendar. :)

As the tree said to the lumberjack, I'm stumped!

I think I'll send this to Shawn Slater to see if he knows.

As promised, I sent my query off the Shawn Slater. Sadly, there's no interesting story to tell:
"As for the Muppet*Vision 3-D detail you point out, it's actually the first time I've noticed that. Unfortunately, it looks like the word "JUNE" was pencilled in, probably by a vandal (either cast member or guest). The Imagineering designer most likely left the month off, so the detail would remain timeless. This sort of thing is done often, unless there's a specific reason to highlight a month or date (the fact that it's a July calendar page would have been considered irrelevant, since most observers wouldn't be looking that closely)."

Share and enjoy!

I've noticed the photo before, but never looked at closely as you. Nice catch, even though there doesn't seem to be a good story for it.
