The AutoCorrect Game

New device in the house. Now it has to learn all my words again. But! Now I get to see what all these player names turn into in the hands of Auto-Correct.

Can you guess who I was trying to write about? I bet you’ll figure them all out, but I’ll try to do them from easiest to toughest. Maybe I’ll send the winner something if someone gets em all.

C. Barn
C. Marmot
J. Curt
S. Lecture (also S. Lexus)
Frankly M.
M. Nickels
M. Cheerier
R. Rehash
F. Doubting
M. Hungary
Data V.
A. Cashmere
W. Beaten

    Marmot = Marmol
    Curt = Cust (the Southern spell-check dictionary would recognize Cust as the totally valid word that it is)
    Nickels = Nickeas
    Cashmere = Cashner

    I thought Frankly may be Morales, too, but there’s no way spell check doesn’t recognize Franklin, right? I mean, anytime someone spelled “Ben Franklin” it would autocorrect to “Ben Frankly.” Autocorrect is stupid, but if it’s that stupid, I’ll lose a lot of faith in technology.

    I only came up with Barmes, Marmol, LeCure, Doubront, and Cashner. I’m still not convinced Raburn went to Rehash. None of those letters except for the ‘R’ are the same. Then again, I can’t think of another RR. All the others seem likely.
