Winter Bash is on!

I am very excited about hats though I don't own one yet :-(

I was just hanging around clicking on random cards on the Winter Bash page when I came across this after I clicked on the "Where in the World" card.

Where in the World? moon and stars. ask, answer, or vote when it's December 21st anywhere in the world (this has comes in two forms, but you can only get one) You haven't earned this hat on any sites yet.

Where in the World? moon and stars.

Shouldn't it be hat instead of has?

I mean is that really a typo, or some joke I ain't getting?

Once again, a very happy "Winter Bash" and holidays to all of you here.

    If they copy pasted to create this answer then I'd guess the other form of that has is misspelled too. – scohe001 Dec 9 '19 at 16:30

    It also bugs me that "ask" isn't capitalised. – user377035 Dec 9 '19 at 17:19
  • @Lewis: It is the Unix influence (not a good one), and we have to live with it to this day. Unix terminals could only show lower-case characters. I was introduced to Unix in 1985 on such terminals. – P.Mort. - forgot Clay Shirky_q Dec 12 '19 at 15:05

and

this hat comes in two forms but…

Definite typo.

Same on the Day hat too
