“Eternally grapefruit” (joke on “eternally grateful")

"My teacher told me not to worry about spelling because in the future there will be autocorrect. And for that I am eternally grapefruit” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. “Eternally grateful” is correct, but the joke is that autocorrect changed this to “eternally grapefruit.”

“i’d be eternally grapefruit” was posted on the newsgroup rec.music.gdead on August 14, 1990. “For this you should be eternally grapefruit” was posted on Twitter by @FutureSkeleton on February 16, 2010. “‘thanks mum, i’m eternally grapefruit!’ more fun food puns at http://buff.ly/1QxEY57” was posted on Twitter by nomnomenon on May 10, 2015. “Thanks mum, we’re eternally grapefruit.* Damn autocorrect” was posted on Twitter by Just Eat Ireland on March 11, 2018.

Fruity faux pas
EDUCATIONALLY-MINDED reader Hazel Colgan recalls one of her former English teachers who told her not to worry too much about her struggles with spelling as in the future most of her work would most likely be executed on a laptop with autocorrect.

“And for that I am eternally grapefruit,” says Hazel.
