For all you V-Day fans: a neural network with a sense of humor

According to a 2015 study, people are 3,777% more likely to eat candy hearts on Valentine’s day, so, yeah, you could say candy hearts are a pretty big deal come February.

And, phrases like “Be Mine” and “Crazy 4 You”  have become as synonymous with the love holiday as the chalky candy itself.

But, a new neural network has a few edgy additions to the usually earnest V-Day mainstay.

Research scientist Janelle Shane gathered every classic candy heart phrase and used them to teach a machine learning algorithm to create new phrases based on patterns it detected in the classic candy heart sentiments, and let’s just say, it got weird.

Here are some of our faves:

  • “BONG LOV”
  • “DOOO ME”
  • And last, but certainly not least: “TIT KISS”

Uhhh, happy tit– er, uh… Valentine’s Day.
