I've seen a lot of these "forced a bot/AI to watch hours of this then write a script" and this one is BY FAR the funniest. I don't care if it's human written. It's amazing.

Doesn't it usually turn out that there was never any bot and it's just written by someone who tries to be funny? That always kind of ruins it for me.

I laughed at every single sentence. "Batman looks for his parents, but they are still dead" knocked the wind out of me.

This writer single-handedly set actual AI text generation back several years.

Honestly the one thing that makes it hard for me to believe this is real is that the story remembers how many people are in the scene. It remembers that Two Face left and now there's only Joker and Alfred. I'm not sure a neural net would have that kind of changing state knowledge.

I don't care if it's fake or real, it's freaking hilarious!

"Alfred, give birth to Robin." Alfred begins the process since that it is his job.

If there is an actual bot that does a full feature length script of absolute nonsense I would gladly read it all the way through :)

That's what set you off? Not the clever one-liners, puns and character deconstructions?

I was first skeptical, because it is obviously too clever to be machine written, but the expired coupon for parents won me over.

Holy fuck I'm dead. This is pure gold.

Not laughing at this because it's not "real" is like not laughing at a comedy because it wasn't written by the actors reciting the lines. People are missing the point lol.

I swear I've read this one before. I bet it's a repost. Still funny though, and obviously not written by a bot :P

I like the coupon bit.

It reads like a badly translated Japanese version of Batman. Tidy it up and I'd read/watch it for sure.

"Guy makes meme and I post it again on the internet!"

He's been doing these fake bot scripts for maybe a year? They were clever at first, but now it's just tiresome rehashing of the same premise. Meh.
People still find them funny, enough that many are quoting it here and might use it for future reference. Keaton Patti did his job of staying memorable.

I don't believe a bot made this, it's too funny and seems intentionally fucked around with to mimic those generators

Pretty damn great read tho
