Back in the early 90’s in the LA Times Business section I read and re-read a sentence that went something like this.

“After stock prices read for hours in the Red, later in the session they moved into the African-American”.

Since auto-correct was new it took me awhile to figure that out — then I lol’d.

Funniest thing I’ve read in a year.

My other favorite is mistakes kids make in creative writing, or on math tests —you’ll pee your pants, almost.

Now, that is some funny stuff. Makes me less aggravated with my goofy misspelling.
Thanks for the post.

My nephew's into that stuff and had read a number of them to me.My favorite is “you're the first girl who's ever made me think of the Fuherer” (instead of future).

*groan* This takes me back about 25 years when I was typing up a PTA newsletter- the first “From the President” kind of column for my “term”. AFTER it was all printed and distributed... I noticed my salutation was “Dead Parents,”.
I never heard a peep about it and have no idea who, if anyone, even noticed!

I guess I’m getting a bit too old to find the humor in much of this. But, I only made it to #5 before getting bored.

My daughter texted me asking what I got her from McDs. I texted back “ a chicken snak wrap” but auto correct made it say “a chicken anal wrap” and of course she had to show all her friends.

That’s the one that got me. I laughed so hard my eyes watered, I couldn’t breath and I triggered a coughing fit. I am recovering from the flu and my wife thought I was having a seizure.

I stopped at about the same point for the same reason, but then I went back to see what all the fuss was about. My wife was looking at me cockeyed because I was laughing so hard. It's the best laugh I have had in a long, long time.

The good stuff, IMO, starts at about #16.

Not auto-correct but OCR.

I scanned an article and on reading the finnished product found there was a problem in FiJi from that cheating beetle.

Helps if it has happened to you. Sometimes while texting autocorrect can be infuriating. If you don't take the time to read what you are about to send before clicking send you WILL get bit. Probably worse on IM, but I don't do IM.
