Daily Mail Headlines pt 1 (A bunghole figure)
We've generated some Daily Mail headlines using AI, and the coverage is mainly centered on the royals (who knew?). We're celebrating the birthday of a puffin, being stalked by the Queen, and eating our own foot in our coverage of today's headlines.

Sleepy Computer is a podcast where the computer writes jokes for our brain. We use AI on artificial computers that give "brain stories", and we read out the random stories while the music plays - using the same algorithm that's writing this paragraph. In today’s episode the music was written by Blue Dot Sessions. We call it "Sleepy Computer" because the random computer-made jokes are similar to the ones that humans make when we're dreaming. Each episode, it will randomly generate a new story. We're told by the computer what to say next, and although we do not dictate the topic or the meaning of the story, we'll selectively delete bad ideas or sentences if we think they're not funny anymore or they take us too far from the original story. The stories are about 90% generated by the computer itself, and our 10% input is mainly grammar.
