Are you familiar with this web site?

It's good for some giggles.

 http://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=dingdangity+you+autocorrect&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8


well THAT didn't work. Replace dingdangity with the harsher form of "darn" and you'll get it!

I just checked the site and laughed so hard my secretary came in to see what I was laughing at.  :D
A spoon! A spoon! My kingdom for a case of #%^***** spoons!

Laughing is PAINFUL right now, but I can't help it!  Too funny!

Anyone able to tell what Carly autocorrects to?

My mom's old phone would change my Aunt Anna's name to Boob.

Mom calls Aunt Anna by her new name every now and then.

My all-time favorite DYAC is the ZIONISM! one. Totally not safe for here, but hilarious.

I found out the hard way that my BlackBerry autocorrects "xoxo" to "c*cks" (The actual word, no asterisk, though I probably didn't need to specify that. ;) )

Oh man, I love autocorrect.  It's one of my favorite things, seriously.  DF sends me texts from time to time that are total gibberish, and I get to decipher them.  It's like a little puzzle.  I especially love when it changes a real word to something that's totally made up.

I want to beat whoever invented the T9 system with a wet noodle. Seriously, the things it comes up with! My sister Erin is Drin. My boyfriend Brandon is Craneno. ::) That's not to mention all the bizarre ideas it has about place names and all the real words it simply doesn't know...

I spent Monday reading all of DYAC and frequently thought I was going to injure myself internally trying not to laugh audibly.

Edited for grammar.

I don't get anything funny for Carly or Nicolette on my iPod ... maybe a Droid would be funnier  :-\

My droid wants Carly to be Early and Nicolette to be Gillette.
