  • I once had some silly placeholder text accidentally make it into a print catalog. Often while working on this very large book if we didn't have a product description or photo we'd put something there just to take up some space on the layout... and to crack each other up. One product, "Nipple Clamps", nothing weird - something to do with guns IIRC, didn't have a description so I put in something like "Ow. That's gonna leave a mark!". Although that page and several other were actually changed later, the document became corrupted and we had to roll back to an earlier version. Guess what was in that earlier version. None of these were caught during proof reading by several people and went to the printer. It was out a month or two before anyone noticed it and even though it wasn't actual profanity the boss was not amused!
