Those killjoys at Apple have corrected auto-correct, but the memories live on at The Message

While the worst you could do on a mobile phone a few years ago was send an inappropriate drunk message (or perhaps throw it at someone in fury, if you’re Russell Crowe), the advent of the iPhone has meant that every day, thousands of people get themselves into digital pickles because of a feature that is actually meant to make the iPhone easier to use.

Thigh-slappingly funny as these are, alas the feature has been improved so that less of these entertainingly confusing situations arise.

Thank God the Internet caught on and archived this hilarity before it was too late…
