An AI Story of Food-Adjacent Superheroes

What follows was entirely generated by AI. The text comes to us from ChatGPT, and the image courtesy Midjourney AI. It's a tale about Colonel Sanders and Orville Redenbacher as superheroes, and I'm sharing it to provide a sample of the present state of AI. Is it good? Not really. I do expect AI to be far advanced from this in just a few years time.
Once upon a time, in the bustling city of Detroit, a new threat emerged in the form of Krampus, a nefarious supervillain determined to wreak havoc on the city's inhabitants.

But fear not, for the city had two unlikely heroes on their side: Orville Redenbacher and Colonel Sanders.

Orville, the popcorn king, was able to use his powers of popping corn to blind and distract Krampus, while Colonel Sanders used his secret blend of 11 herbs and spices to weaken the villain's defenses.

Together, they fought valiantly against Krampus, using their unique abilities to protect the citizens of Detroit. They battled through the streets, dodging Krampus's deadly coal-based attacks and returning fire with their own popcorn and fried chicken based powers.

As the battle raged on, it seemed that Krampus was gaining the upper hand. But just when all hope seemed lost, Orville and Colonel Sanders had a stroke of genius. They combined their powers and created the ultimate weapon: a popcorn chicken bomb.

With one mighty throw, they launched the bomb at Krampus, and it exploded in a burst of delicious popcorn and crispy chicken. The villain was defeated, and the city was saved.

The citizens of Detroit hailed Orville and Colonel Sanders as their heroes, and the two unlikely friends went on to have many more adventures together, always ready to defend their city from any threat that may arise.
