Computer Program Creates Hilarious Recipe Names For Your Favorite Foods

There are plenty of things I trust computers to do. Mathematics. Prevent accidents. Stream me reruns of Are you Afraid of the Dark while I cringe in horror at what I used to find entertaining as a child.

But there are some matters of the heart that I don't trust computers with. Like... at all.

And generating names for recipes is one of them. Human beings love food because we need it to survive, and also because it's exciting. We're drawn in by the fancy names of dishes at restaurants, the smells, the tastes, and the overall experience of eating. Robots don't have those hang-ups.

Which is why this computer-generated neural network has absolutely no idea as to what sounds appetizing to humans.

Like, zero. Just look at how ridiculous some of these recipe names are.

Research Scientist Janelle Shane created the AI that "learns" how to create cooking recipes for people to eat.

In an interview with Buzzfeed, Shane talked about her inspiration behind the seemingly random idea.

"I was inspired by Tom Brewe’s neural network-generated recipes, which are hilarious and very well worth a look. The project's end goal is its present state: pure entertainment. In the future I'd love to experiment more with different datasets (so far I've used superhero names, Pokémon names/abilities, and the complete works of H.P. Lovecraft)." 

People soon started picking out their favorite crazy-sounding recipes.

It looks like there needs to be a few kinks ironed out in the AI, but in the meantime, please enjoy these hilarious recipes.

Like, seriously. What. The Heck. Are These?

I mean, I'm in love with them, but they're just so...so...weird
