Suppose a young man with a wild imagination and too much time on his hands went to a greasy spoon diner one evening at 3 AM. Suppose the same young man grew tired of all the belligerent drunks and lot lizards that usually frequent a greasy spoon diner late at night, so he began to surf the interwebs on his smart phone to occupy his time until his gyro omelette and rye toast were ready to be served.
Suppose that while killing time surfing the interwebs, the young man came across some famous quotes and later stumbled upon the humorous website, Damn You Autocorrect. Now suppose the imaginative young man with too much time on his hands got to thinking:
“What if all the famous authors, poets, artists, philosophers, and great leaders of history had to use a smart phone to type their inspiring quotes? Would their quotes sound any less smart? Would they be any less inspiring? What would the quotes read like if these great historical figures had to put down their pen and paper, and use the same means of communication that we use today – texting, tweeting, emailing, and other forms of social media? What if the famous quotes were subject to autocorrect?”
Suppose the young man’s thoughts were to materialize. I suppose you would get something like this. Ten famous quotes given the autocorrect treatment, volume three.

My God. What have we done. Modern devices and social media are destroying our love shaft. Our language! Destroying r language! For volumes one and two, click the links below.
Ten Famous Autocorrected Quotes – Volume One
Ten Famous Autocorrected Quotes – Volume Two
Oh yes, the sweet brilliance of auto confusion… A collision all it’s own, meant to inspire the stupidity within it’s grasp to declare, “What the…!”
What the…! is right! Smart phone my arse. I’ve never heard a language sound so dumb. It’s almost caveman-like.
company just take care of that for you?). Regardless of those concerns, I do like the albiity to carry something small and lightweight instead of a bulky laptop, and Apple DOES make a sexy-looking piece of computer hardware
There should be a TV show called, “The Dalai Lama Says the Darndest Things.” I have no idea what a hot Carl is, but am certain it can go south in a heartbeat.
Ha! I like that idea for the TV show. Oh and yeah, you might not wanna look up a hot Carl. I have 5 brothers, so that’s how I learned about most things. Growing up with 5 brothers was very educational, except learning about practical things, I learned how to swear in Spanish and learned slang words for the male anatomy.
If it’s anything like a Cleveland Steamer or Rusty Trombone, I’ll take your word for it.
It’s right on par with the old Cleveland Steamer and Rusty Trombone. Who thinks of these things let alone does these acts?!!! Well, I suppose to each their own. I say if Cleveland Steamers are your thing, then go for it. Steam away!
A piece of erdoutiin unlike any other!
twain is probably already rolling over in his grave watching how language is being butchered in more ways than one. the spelling in mlk’s speech alone, let alone other typos really kills that one… BUT it’s so funny! thanks for starting me off with a laugh today :)
You’re welcome :))))) Thanks for reading.
A great way to start my today and thanks for following my Painting and Photography posts at Terrill Welch Artist – pleased to meet you :)
Pleased to meet you as well! I’m digging your art. Very good stuff.
OMFG. . . I LOVE THESE!! I find them to brilliant!! I think my favorite this time was Freud. Casting cocks instead of rocks, how clever!
“to be brilliant”. . . .see there, flustered and can’t even type!! lol
Thanks darling! I like the Freud one, too. I might try a few more rounds of these autocorrected quotes down the road. I thought they would get old, but they’re still fun to do!
hahaha. . .I absolutely love them, and when I read them while here at work, sit and laugh silently until tears run down my face. :)
I am dying here, I want to relog them but they would take up my whole blog. No one should miss out on these gems (your autoquotes).
Thanks! They’re a lot of fun to put together. I think I’ll do some more down the road.
Lol seriously. How do you think of these??
Crack cocaine and angel dust. Sike! I’m just a weirdo, I guess. I have a 5 or 6 page document of famous quotes I keep, then underneath the quotes, I have notes for ways to mess them up. I probably have a 100 of these, but I only post 10 at a time. Total weirdo :)
Very crafty… Love it!
Thanks TIA! More specifically, thanks for getting the Beastie Boys song “She’s Crafty” stuck in my head. I love that album. Cheers!
Wow, Freud can’t even defend himself without using the word “cock”. And the mental image of the Dalai Lama texting? Amazing.
Haha, I know right?! I think if the Dalai Lama got into Twitter, he would have like 18 million followers. And just imagine him on Instagram and Vine!
Oh you know his Vine would be full of pet videos. Definitely one of a dog riding a skateboard.
Brilliant, as always! Love Einstein!!!
Einstein rocks! I feel that if him and I would’ve crossed paths back in the day, we woulda been good pals.
Dalai Lama and a hot carl…I never thought I’d see these together in a sentence- ever.
I have a knack for pairing unusual things together, I guess. Is it a knack?! Some people classify it as a mental illness. :)
Reblogged this on Ka Nansa Unangkanto.

ha~These aew awesome and hillarious~Thanks for posting~!
