You have most probably heard of T9, the text recognition system implemented in most mobile phones. It allows on a 9-key keypad to hit each key only once, and from the combination of keys it guesses which word you most likely wanted to type. As multiple words may result in the same key combination the phone lets you choose one of the possibilities.
So what's interesting about it?
Long ago I found out, that my friend's name "Anja" often results in "Cola", which was rather annoying. Today's discovery kinda.. uhm... surprised me, though. I hadn't finished typing "Joe Cocker" in a short message, the phone was already eager to propose "Joe Anal".
I guess "Cock" was too vulgar. ;)
