Auto Completed

Okay, Google – you think you’re pretty smart? How about you try completing the text from famous children’s books. I’ll type the beginning of each line into a Google search (plain text below), and you try to finish the line (bold text below).

Moo, Baa, La La La!

(and Google autocomplete)

Moo Baa

A cow with no legs.

A sheep no more.

Three singing sisters

say something.

“No, no, no”

“that isn’t fair

the pigs say that boxer went where.”

Rhinoceroses definition

and little dogs good for apartments.

Some other dogs bark at my dog.

And cats and kittens for sale.

Quack sound effect.

A horse with no name.

It’s quiet now all I hear is raindrops.
