About the Apple Clickbait Generator

The idea for this came to me in a sudden flash of inspiration while idly staring out the window. I blame The Macalope. Special thanks to my friend Owen Evans who completely rewrote my original JavaScript code into something much, much better.

The page generates a new, random article every time you refresh. Most of the sentences are culled verbatim from real clickbait articles found online. Some sentences I adapted to varying degrees, and some others I wrote myself, after channeling years of bad articles I’ve read.

If the Apple Clickbait Generator gave you a chuckle, I’d be honored if you’d consider giving it a link. Tweets warm my heart! If you want to know more about the creator of this, my about page is full of personality and guaranteed to contain things you won’t find in other about pages (such as the proper plural of “octopus”).
