Review

"Completely and utterly hilarious" -- Stephen Fry --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Jillian Madison is the founder of Pophangover.com, a snarky pop culture blog network that launched in the summer of 1999. The site has been visited by tens of millions of people, and has grown into one of the Internet's premiere destinations for clever original humor and pop culture news. Pophangover content is constantly retweeted by celebrities and referenced by the Huffington Post, AOL's Pop Eater, CNN, and VH1's Best Week Ever. Sadly, Madison is also an Autocorrect victim herself (she once invited her friends over for a night of fellatio, rather than gelato). She lives in Orange, CT.

I haven't laughed this hard since my ex got run over by a honeywagon! By Page 2 I was literally laughing so hard tears were streaming down both cheeks - er, my face - and my roomie had to come see why I was making such odd choking sounds. Jillian Madison has struck pure gold with her idea for collecting these nuggets of testicle...tentacle...dammit! ...TEXTUAL tribulations and I am now a fan for life!
This book is tonally worm every penis! Buy one for yourself and one for each of your fiends. You won't repent it!

I discovered the site damnyouautocorrect.com a few weeks ago and was almost literally ROFLOLing, as the kids say (sort of). It was the kind of laughter that is surely therapeutic--abdominal-crunching, urinary-mishap-inducing. Looking for more of the same, I downloaded the book version of the site to my Kindle. Like the site, Damn You, Autocorrect! features screen shots of texted conversations that have gone embarrassingly awry because someone's smartphone autocorrected their text inappropriately. For example:

> whatcha up to?

< Nothin, just cleaning mom's vagina for thanksgiving.

> hahaahaahh WHAT????

< Agh! I tried to type china. Auto-correct fail!
< Bad visual

> yeah I think she can handle the other thing on her own.

The book includes 300 texted conversations, most of which have not previously appeared on the web site. Some of them are very funny, but my impression is that the percentage of laugh-out-loud autocorrect faux pas that are really good is lower in the book than on the web site. Or maybe it's just that there are a lot more examples to paw through on the site than in the book, so the success rate on the site seems higher. At any rate, I'd say that the book is not a necessary read. If you're a web savvy digital ager, stick with the web site. If, on the other hand, you want to buy a gift for someone who is digitally challenged, then picking up a copy of Damn You, Autocorrect! makes good sense.

I find very few books LOL funny, but this one had me crying I was laughing so hard...if you have ever had autocorrect send exactly the wrong message to someone, you will relate to this book. All I can say is that I was literally rotflmao the whole time I was reading the book....
(PS - I don't usually write in "textese" but it just seemed so appropriate for this review!)

I like this book but I personally felt that the website had funnier posts than the book. But it's still funny! :D

. . . because you'll totally get busted by your laughter. I purchased the book to cheer up a good friend who is going through a tough time, but couldn't resist reading it myself first. I tried to finish the last few pages at work before passing the book off to my co-worker/friend, but I really struggled not to laugh out inappropriately in the workplace. I purchased several similarly funny books lately, but this is one of the best! If you are looking for something to make you (or a friend) laugh, this one is pure gold!

I tried to pick out a few of my favorites to share here, such as:

"I broke my penis and it exploded all over my pants." (*pen)

"Please tell her I have herpes." (*her pies)

". . . stop leaving the bloody tampon!" (*bloody lamp on)

If you enjoy immature humor as much as I do, I highly recommend you purchase this book. You will definitely LOL! Literally!

A great short fun read that anyone who is not easily offended. If you enjoy the site, you'll enjoy the book just as much.

This book has literal laugh-out-loud moments.. many of them. Some of the texts are lame/not very funny, but a lot are chuckle worthy and many are downright hilarious! It's a great book for what it is - conversation starter, bathroom/coffee table book.
