Hilarious auto-captioning of one of my YouTube videos

I recently posted a video on YouTube showing the basic operation of the TAPPI hand sheet former we have for sale.

Just this evening I noticed that YouTube tries to do speech recognition to generate closed captioning for the videos. On this particular video, I would estimate it got at best 5% of the words correct. Some of the captioning is just gibberish, some sounds like pithy aphorisms, and one line is NSFW. With the proper selection of lines you could make a very cryptic haiku. I found it hilarious to watch.

To see this captioning, below the video you will see a row containing the Like and Dislike buttons, the selectors for the About, Share, and Add To tabs, and some icons the first of which sort of looks like a menu selector, but actually gives the “Transcript” as YouTube calls it. Click on this then play the video.

If you want a puzzle, here is the (censored) transcript without the video; see if you can guess what I’m really saying! Hint: The boldface words are correct
