The Perils of “Replace All”

Commenter Aidan Kehoe at Languagehat pointed out this story at Bluegrass World.

Important safety tip: Always reread your story after doing a search and replace and before hitting the big, red Publish button.

Sample:

While many fans of Bluegrbutt music date the genre back to 1939, when Monroe formed his first Blue Grbutt Boys band, most believe that the clbuttic bluegrbutt sound came of age in 1946, shortly after Earl Scruggs joined the band. Equally influential in the clbuttic 1946 line-up of the Blue Grbutt Boys were Lester Flatt on guitar and lead vocals, Chubby Wise on fiddle and Howard Watts on the doghouse bbutt.

Obligatory snark: It’s a good thing they have editors (unlike hoi polloi).
