Autocorrect is hilarious. I was once sent to the principal's office because some kid was having a fit over something and blamed me on it (no idea what it was about still). Later that day a friend sent me some texts trying to ask me about it.

What the fever happened?

Why the hell can't I cuss?
So now I can?
Fever.
I give up.

My friend showed me this at work. Needless to say, productivity was a little off that day.

Oh man, I'm dying at work over here. Too funny. I turned that off on my phone to prevent situations like this.

Yeah,this site is hilarious. I found it the other day and was trying hard to stifle my laughter so the co-workers don't think I'm nutty.

What phone would even have "fuhrer" (complete with umlaut) in its autocorrect dictionary?!

Isn't it interesting that they were all from iPhones? 

Yeah, I'm just trolling there. :)

Lmao.

Dunno how many of those were staged, but I haven't laughed this hard in a long time.

Whether it might be staged or not, that really made me laugh after having a real tiring day.

From what I heard, some versions of the iPhone would autocorrect once you hit send so there was no time to fix it.  This is the default action but it's possible there's a way around it.  Nevertheless it's still funny as hell.  Some are probably still staged, but it gave it more realism in my eyes haha.

Sometimes autocorrect won't show up in time if it's my last word and I hit enter.

I love that site - I discovered it a while ago, but I can't read it at work or I'll spend all day laughing too hard and ignoring actual work.
