    Sadly, I can identify. Someone texted me about the dessert they were eating. I texted back "darn cupcakes!" and it came out "farm cockles!"

    Not good.

    I was texting a friend about eating some pickled Okra.

    It was changed to:

    "I love eating Oprah... it's so slimy and sour."

    Set your text options to auto fill and type fast without paying attention, and it will happen to you sooner or later...

    McDonkadonk? Boobsicles? Skittlefart? Forgive me if I have a hard time believing that auto-correct is correcting with words that don't really exist and miscellaneous profanities.

    Autocorrect actually learns from previous posts and tries to "guess" what you are saying.

    Why it came up with Oprah? I have no idea...

    I just searched some of those weird profanities and apparently they come from The Oatmeal. Sort of like how some site 10 years ago came up with the term "assclown" and it caught on all over the net.
