Kids prank parents with fake drug deal text messages, results prove hilarious

Many are familiar with the website "Damn You, Autocorrect." Visitor post screenshots of text message conversations that were humorously derailed by autocorrect. On Wednesday, comedian Nathan Fielder asked his Twitter followers to go that site one better.

Here's what his tweet said:
Experiment: text your parents "got 2 grams for $40" then right after "Sorry ignore that txt. Not for you" Then tweet pic of their response.
The results were as hilarious as you might expect.

Nathan Fielder is a comedian from Canada. He's "appeared" on "Bob's Burgers" and has his own Comedy Central show called "
"Nathan for You."

Dozens of his fans followed his suggestion. The results were hilarious and perhaps worth the upset that the parents experienced, and possibly even the loss of the cell phone that some of the perpetrators might have seen.

"Damn You Autocorrect," on the other hand, posts what are supposed to be actual text conversations between people where autocorrect took the conversation in a wonky direction.  Frequently, the direction is sexual.  One example is available here.

A slideshow of examples of the hilarity is embedded here.
