“I had a really funny joke, but autocorrect ruined the lunchtime”

A joke about autocorrection is:
 
“I had a really funny joke, but autocorrect ruined the lunchtime.”
 
“Punchline” was changed to “lunchtime.” The joke was posted on Twitter on June 16, 2014 and probably originated on Sickipedia.
 
   
Wikipedia: Autocorrection
Text replacement, replace-as-you-type or autocorrect is an automatic data validation function commonly found in word processors and text editing interfaces for smartphones and tablet computers. Its principal purpose is as part of the spell checker to correct common spelling or typing errors, saving time for the user. It is also used to automatically format text or insert special characters by recognizing particular character usage, saving the user from having to use more tedious functions.
