The Tenant Governor of the Little Scott, Legoland

Google’s voicemail-to-text transcription service rarely gets it right. But, what it lacks in accuracy is made up for in laughs.

For instance, a call from my parents which starts as “Hi, Scott, it’s Mom” is transcribed to “My god, it’s Mom!” Or, “Hi, Scotty, it’s your Dad,” becomes “Hi, scaredy.”

I shudder to mention the call I got from “Dr. Balls office.”

For those who don’t have Google Voice, I thought I’d share. Here’s one I received tonight:

Hey the election for the tenant Governor of the little Scott, Legoland, stands out from the crowd other candidates talk about the economy, but Democrats Godly code is doing something about it right now. Scott is holding job fair is to help Illinois. Please get back to work. Scott is not a career politician use of small businesses and the father of Rod must resign a citizens group just want to remove Robert boy from office. Both Democrats. Scott Lee Cohen for. Lieutenant governor. I’m Scott Lee calling tonight group it’s not.
