10 Autocorrect Fails of 2016 vs 10 Autocorrect Fails of 2012

2012... Big Beautiful Nipples

2012... Big Beautiful Nipples

As we all know by now, autocorrect has been around for a while and provided us with countless laughs. Experiencing a slow genesis that sort of began in the 90s and took off more obviously during the mid-2000s, by 2012, we were all familiar with the autocorrect and the hilarity that ensues....

Dead Husband

Despite the good bits regarding autocorrect (those being, when the thing actually works to your advantage - ie, how it's supposed to - we're glad that it exists, and all the funny shit it comes up with as evidenced in these example), there are still lots of bad bits.



I'm Getting Pregnant Tonight!

I'm Getting Pregnant Tonight!

Despite the fact that we all get to laugh at lists such as this one which have been compiled solely for the purposes of our own enjoyment, there are times when it is quite frustrating and even very embarrassing (as also evidenced in many of these laugh-because-it's-not-me moments).

The Hamster Life

So, considering that the powers-that-be have had four more years to get it right, do we expect to see a difference between the autocorrect of 2012 and the autocorrect with four more years of maturity under its belt?



Soylent Green Is People!

Soylent Green Is People!

I think the only fair way to assess this matter is to compare example of both. As you will have noticed already, all the autocorrect mistakes we've seen thus far belong to the days of old (yeah, waaaaayyy back in 2012!).

Being Black

Being Black

It will be interesting to see what changes 2016 brings when we arrive, but for now, it's just nice to kick back and laugh at a time when we had less to worry about. A time when there was no mention of Trump threatening to take the White House, and all we had to worry about was that damn "Call Me Maybe" song getting stuck in our heads like peanut butter on the brain (thank me later).



Killed Her In The Woods

Killed Her In The Woods

It's not something you want evidence of, I guess. It's hard to tell if this was a result of autocorrect or if this guy quickly realized his mistake and came up with the best excuse possible.

Out Of My Lover

Out Of My Lover

Who are you to judge? Do you want the damn pencil or not?!



Period Red

Period Red

But "Period Red" is a legit thing, right? I'm sure I've seen it at the hardware store....

Red Breasts

Red Breasts

Red breasts, you say... Hmmmm... yeah that is a little concerning. I mean, we've all heard of those guys that have a red ass... Like, chimpanzees I think they're called. But red breasts, that's a strange one.



2016 - Dick Date

2016 - Dick Date

Okay, so now we're jumping forward in time (you can do your own sound effects if it makes it feel more real for you) to 2016 and the present day, to see if our old friend autocorrect has become any better at its craft...

So Fatter

So Fatter

If these initial examples are a reliable guide, then the answer must surely be "no". But we should probably give it more of a chance as we did with 2012. So, let's take the time to have an unbiased glance at a few more examples.



She's Southbound

She's Southbound

Personally, I'd have considered the whole thing was not meant to be and simply just given up after the whole "southbound" thing.

The Weed Question

The Weed Question

Well, there's really nothing to say about this one that hasn't already been said for us...



Cajun Pass

Cajun Pass

Seriously, why not just take a step back, get a few deep lung fulls of fresh oxygen (do some yoga if you have to) and then start again fresh?

Babdos

Babdos

Last time I went to Nandos I got the really spicy, hot chicken, and I was sweating so much that it looked like I was a recovering junkie. I think I want to try Babdos this time.



Milk Myself

Milk Myself

I guess that, if I had to be honest, I quite often spend the weekend milking myself but I prefer not to use that terminology - it sort of takes the romance out of it, don't you think?

Dan Pokes The Beat

Dan Pokes The Beat

This is like when Wittgenstein talked about the lion being able to speak English but we wouldn't be able to understand what it was saying regardless. And if you are confused by that then I suggest you Google it. But it's not like I would know where to start in Googling to understand what these weirdos are talking about. How does one poke the beat?



C**T Back

C**T Back

I think we're starting to get a fair indication of how autocorrect is faring with four more years experience. It appears that it has been able to learn absolutely nothing. NOTHING!!!

Kobe The Verb

Kobe The Verb

As if to prove the previous idea once and for all, autocorrect goes and tries to make "Kobe" a verb. It would seem that there will be hilarious autocorrect lists for some time to come, folks!
