I prefer the euphamism "bar steward". Works well in speech too.

Dunno whether it still applies, but Jeremy on his website TheSession put in software that detected swear words and automatically replaced them with a euphemism. It worked but it did lead to an absurdity or two. For example, if you tried to type the name of the English town Scunthorpe, it came out as "Seejithorpe." Likewise on Chiff and Fipple, if you typed "bastard" it came out every time as "basmati."

I used to work as a technical translator, so I spent much of my day typing, or mis-typing. Certain words would frequently come out wrong: 'purposes' would often be 'puspores', and as for 'shut-off device' I'll leave you to guess ...

Our local football team went on a charm offensive once, but the local paper's attempt to describe their 'genial waving' came out as 'genital waving'.

My sister up in Scotland lives not far from a village called Longforgan. The local council has got very fed up with replacing the vandalised sign when the 'g' has been painted over yet again.

I've told this on another thread in the past, but it still makes me giggle. A Mrs Malaprop friend told us all sitting round the table during the interval of village bingo that her husband was decorating their hallway and was going to put up a dildo rail. We stared hard at our cups of tea and tried to compose ourselves, with varying success.

A local town here has the long term reputation of being disreputable and rowdy
A few years ago the Council erected a sign on the road going through reading 'SLOWLY THROUGH TOWN" -
Immediately the local graffiti artists got to work blanking out some of the letters. leaving it reading "LOW ROUGH TOWN"

I once knew someone who regularly used "Canine" pepper in her recipes.
She was also known to use the expression "it's a vicious circus.." which conjures up disturbing imagery.

My brother once fired off a very angry e-mail to a supplier complaining about the dreadful service provided and utter lack of competence displayed by those dealing with his complaint.
No matter how cross us English get we do always try to sign off politely with a "Regards" or something similar.
If you've never noticed, the "g" and the "t" on a typical "qwerty" keyboard are in close proximity, causing my brother to sign off his feisty complaint with the word "Retards".

Kind Regards

From: Bruce from Bathurst
Date: 19 Oct 18 - 02:31 AM

Our local newspaper here in rural Australia throws up some fine typos.

A few years ago it announced the arrival of the "Earl and C***ess Bathurst" who were here from England to visit our town (which takes its name from some long gone ancestor of the present Earl). Main headline, front page, complete with photo! Unsurprisingly, the Countess didn't stay in town for very long.

Marginally less offensive was a more recent announcement that "Church Street will be temporarily closed ... to allow the conduct of Beatification Work to continue". (Yes, there were capital letters.) Church Street runs alongside the Anglican Cathedral, so you can be sure there ain't no "Beatification" going on there.

Sadly, the slow demise of serious print media in this country claimed sub-editors among its earliest casualties.

I don't like it either, Backwoodsman - it is especially pointless as the word 'anniversary' refers to the turning years.
Nor do I like, 'at age X' instead of 'at the age of ...', which sounds as if the speaker is recounting the results of an experiment involving subjects [people] at different ages.
