“Hey autocorrect, quit tampering with my curse words, you mother forklift”

"Hey autocorrect, quit tampering with my curse words, you mother forklift” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many ecards. The saying has been cited on Twitter since October 11, 2011.

“Autocorrect can be your worst enema” is a similar saying.


Wikipedia: Autocorrection
Text replacement, replace-as-you-type or AutoCorrect is an automatic data validation function commonly found in word processors such as Microsoft Word and text editing interfaces for Apple Inc. products including the iPod, iPhone and the iPad. Its principal purpose is as part of the spell checker to correct common spelling or typing errors, saving time for the user. It is also used to automatically format text or insert special characters by recognizing particular character usage, saving the user from having to use more tedious functions.
