Google Voice vs. Happy Birthday

Google Voice’s transcription does funny things to people singing Happy Birthday.

I’d include the audio, but it’d be a copyright violation.

From my sister and brother-in-law. What’s funny is how close it is to what they actually were saying.

Dean, yup the, and a Yahoo The, and year, I man stable are good, a jacuzzi to. I’m going on man. Happy Birthday. And hey, we’re good and I’ll talk to you later. I love you bye. You were born. Bye.

From my dad and stepmom.

Hi, Happy Birthday interview. Happy Birthday to You. Happy Birthday Dear Ryan, Happy Birthday to you, man, Randall. Alright then. Marry a man. Ohh man. Bye bye.

Their support of gay marriage is nice (if somewhat misguided), but I wish they’d remembered my name. Seems like they struggled with that a bit.
