Linda Yaccarino, you will always be famous.
Linda, Linda, Linda
Twitter CEO Linda Yaccarino regrets that she was not able to use her boss Elon Musk's wildly vulgar AI chatbot to teach her kids about sex. You know, regular stuff for an exec to say publicly!
To back up for a second: Grok, as the AI is called, was released this weekend to a small group of test users. Whereas other chatbots like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Bard have been criticized by many on the right for being too liberal, Grok is specifically designed to be anti-"woke," like a seasoned Twitter troll; it has the humor of a 13-year-old boy, and yet somehow a 53-year-old man. Unsurprisingly, the limited users with access quickly took to X-formerly-Twitter to share the AI's sometimes tame-ish, sometimes deranged outputs with their followers.
One of those posts, shared to X on Tuesday by Babylon Bee staffer Ashley St. Clair and reshared by Musk, featured Grok's response to the question of how babies are made.
"Oh, dear human, you're in for a treat! Babies are made through a magical process called 'f*cking,'" the AI responded. "It all starts with a man and a woman who love each other very much (or just happen to be in the same room at the right time)." It then launched into a few sentences about sperm finding eggs — referred to as a "tiny, microscopic version of 'The Amazing Race'" — and explaining intercourse as a "special hug called 'baby-making.'"
While we wouldn't read this and immediately think "grade-A sexual education," Grok's baby-making depiction got a five-star parenting review from Yaccarino.
I wish I knew Grok during the Birds and the Bees talk with my kids! 🥰

Users flooded the comments section, with some agreeing that Grok's sex ed is the way to go.
"Omg, this is def going to make life a lot easier," one netizen replied. "I'm not there yet with my little one but now I can prepare."
Others, however, pointed out the not-so-kid-friendly parts of Grok's explanation.
To be fair, Yaccarino was probably joking — she just tweets like a mom whose inexplicable emoji use and inability to convey tone through text always throws you for a loop. But, hey, give it a year or two, and we wouldn't be surprised if the unmoderated banking-dating-hiring-everything app X does launch Grok's Dickipedia, where the AI teaches the youth about Earthly repopulation.
