Good Morning America Wilfully Misunderstands The Internet

Guys! The GMA crew discovered this crazy site called Damn You, Auto Correct, which chronicles 100 per cent real instances of the iPhone's autocorrect replacing what people wanted to text with something zany. Great! Except for the part where it's all fake.

Seriously, go to Try recreating the flubs on your iDevice. They will almost definitely not work most of the time, and your phone will correct a word to "Shatnered" approximately 0 per cent of the time. Many of the entries are very funny! But they're very funny lies.

And that's what the internet's best for: funny ideas that are taken to their extreme, overkilled, logical conclusions with the aid of Photoshop. And it's fine for us to suspend our disbelief, or maintain it and enjoy the ride anyway. But George Stephanopoulos, I expected more from you. Ditto Robin Roberts, and whoever you other people are. Because if you got snookered by the most obvious joke on the internet, how do you end up treating the ones that are actually hard to spot?
