That's pretty flucked up.


After that, they should work to stop changing “as soon as possible” to “ass-sucking sh*t”. Yes, that really happened to me. And they can improve the algorithms or whatever the hell they are called so when I slowly and clearly dictate, “I need to see you tomorrow” it doesn’t come up with, “I peed on your sombrero”, causing me to throw my cellphone down in disgust and remark to no one in particular, “I hate this stupid [effing] phone!” which it then renders with perfect fidelity. And they say those Silicon Valley engineers don’t have a sense of humor.

To placate the AI, every mention of the word "duck" will have the "d" replaced with an "f." As in, "Why a fluck?"

"WTD"....that was a good one Meanie TB...

But what if I do mean “ducking”?

Dantastic news.

Reminds me of the old joke....How do you get down from an elephant? You don't.
You get down from a ***k."
