Read it here

Turns out a predictive keyboard is the greatest comedian of our time.

I love this. I'm also hoping eventually they can bring the Scrubs cast together to do the predictive Scrubs script. I know Zach Braff was interested.

This reads like prompts in a Rogue-like game. It's great.

And now I'm sad, because despite many outlets reporting this as being written by a predictive keyboard, the facts that the site describes itself as writers "collaborating" with machines, that writing displays a level of context awareness I don't believe is possible even with the current state-of-the-art deep learning models, and that their demo keyboard can't even form a proper sentence with the same input has me pretty convinced this, at best, human writers filling in a few hundred words of nonsense the keyboard spat out.

Still the funniest thing I've read in ages, though.

Yeah, it does seem too gramatically correct to be a pure Markov machine...
