User Topic: Way To Go Autocorrect

I was sending a text not too long ago where I meant to call someone douchey. Well douchey is not a recognized word, so autocorrect fixed that for me.

According to Autocorrect:

douchey -> Douchetroll

Don't know where that came from but it is awesome. Have I been missing stuff on the internet lately?

ETA: Just fixing it, apparently autocorrect also decided that Douchetroll should be capitalized. Must be a proper noun I guess.

Ah yes. DoucheTroll, from the low mountain regions of Dickland. Agressive, ugly creatures. Also? Smell of salad dressing.

Of *course* Douchetroll is a proper noun. Autocotrect isn't *always* wrong...just most of the time...

All affairs are variations on a theme. No one has 'Beethoven's 5th' to everyone else's 'Chopsticks'.

Awesome! Sounds like Autocorrect thought you needed stronger language.

I have no idea where this came from, but I have been showing it to everyone, and I expect it to start showing up everywhere soon, as everyone has the same reaction tushnurse. They all seem to know someone that it is a perfect description of and plan to use it.

Of course there's a Douchtroll; who else would a Douchbag date?

I'm 100% certain that DeeplyScared has a very long DoucheTroll list ...
