My Thursday funnies: New iOS 8 feature has hilarious side effects

The release of Apple's new iPhone 6 and iOS 8 has resulted in the usual hysteria from Apple fan boys and girls. With so many fans clamoring to get their hands on the new software and hardware, it's only inevitable that someone will find a way to use their new gadgets for goofy reasons with funny results.

For example, iOS 8 has predictive text that suggests a word that you might use when you start typing. And one iOS user took to Twitter to demonstrate the hilarious way to use Apple's latest software innovation.

The user started with just one word and let iOS 8's predictive text do the rest. The sentences that resulted from this fun experiment now have their own Twitter account, called "iOS Autopredict" with the tagline "Let Apple put words in your mouth."

Quite a few of these tweets have just enough words in a row to make a weird sort of sense, and others are complete nonsense, like the tweet below.

"Sometimes you just have to do it again and again for the rest of the best of the most beautiful thing in my room is Afro bandwidth issue"

Here's one that sounds like Siri was talking in her sleep.

"Hey pop tarts aren't even in my life"

"Vengeful eyebrows?"

"Vengeful eyebrows are so cute when they get to know your gmail accounts"

But surprisingly, some of the tweets are downright sweet.

"You are the best thing about being in love again."

Umm, Siri? Do we need to have a talk?

"Eat a whole bunch of people"

So far, the silly iOS 8 Autopredict (@ios8autopredict) account has almost 500 followers with just 20 tweets. I, for one, am looking forward to the next installment of goofiness.
