Friday Funnies

The update on my iphone is that I've had it replaced three times.  But it was by no means the fault of apple.
Apparently, there was a virus on my itunes so whenever i would sync my phone, the virus would be transfered back into my phone.  

This went on three times until someone at the GeniusBar informed me what the issue might be.  Of course, Mr. Pancakes mentioned the same thing the day before.  My husband, the apple genius!  Needless to say, my iphone is back in full force. Thank God! I was depressed for a few days!

This brings us to the friday funnies.  A co-worker introduced me to the website, DYAC--damn you auto correct.  

The Auto Correct feature can be your best friend or your worse enemy.  It's a feature on most smart phones that is supposed to correct a word however sometimes it changes the words to whatever it think it's supposed to be.  The DYAC website is completely dedicated to the funny messages that results due to auto correct.  And most of them are pretty hilarious!

The founder behind this website is pretty creative to take something so simple and turn it into an awesome business.   And it makes for some Friday funnies.  Of course enjoy the website after work!

Have you heard of DYAC?
Have you pressed send only to realize the auto correct has taken over?

Here are some examples from DYAC; be warned: they can be inappropriately funny:

Ha ha! Hilarious! My friend from my home church came to visit us and shared a text that his friend "sent" to him. They were going to a bar for happy hour and his friend was late and texted him, "Do they have any negro models?" Obviously his friend is white and he (my friend is black). Then he immediately sent I meant, "Negra Modelos!" Damn auto correct! Embarrassing for him, hilarious for us.

I really thought that first conversation was yours! DYAC makes me laugh, out loud. To the point where I then have to read outloud because people want to know what's so funny. Oh, Apple.
