Janelle Shane from is at it again, showing us what the true purpose of a neural network actually is.  Previously her research brought us Horble Grey, Turdly and a bevy of other new colours of paint to choose from, as well as metal bands, horror movies, beer flavours and so much more.  The Inquirer spotted a new batch of absurdity today, and after the disturbing week we’ve had as far as the security of our computers go, it is very welcome on this Friday.
