I think it's a paleontology joke referring to fossils being found "out of sequence" (i.e. buried in anachronistic rock strata). For example, if a hole develops in an older rock layer that is later filled with newer material including fossils, then you get what appears to be a fossil embedded in a rock that formed before the fossil itself existed (e.g. Cretaceous fossils in a Triassic rock layer). Young-Earth proponents often point to this jumbling of different-aged materials as evidence that stratiographic dating methods are faulty.
What do you mean out of sequence? They are in chronological order. Last time I checked July 22nd came after July 19th and before August 12th.
I was thinking the same thing until I saw explain xkcd:

Apparently, it was a different date that has since been corrected(?).
For those who didn't see it, or need a reminder: it said June instead of July.
Even if you correct the month, the day is still out of order
Right, it was June 12th .
