Since OpenGPT launched I have been playing with this AI Chatbot. My experience has been mixed. I had thrown a handful of complex programming tasks at it and it failed miserably.

Other more simple programming requests I made did seem to yield good results.

Could I use it to help me code? Can I rely on it? Where would this bot fit into my life?

Creative Writing

I decided to throw some creative writing tasks at it and had my mind blown 🤯.

I asked it to write an episode of Rick & Morty. This is a fairly complex task as the bot has to be trained on Rick & Morty content. The process of story writing isn't simple and the bot's ability to inject humor I thought was perfect.

There were a few surprises I wasn't expecting in the story and the result was too good not to share. So here it goes.

The bot even surprised me by giving the episode a name.

Rick and Morty: The Fart Cure

Disclaimer: The bot seems to have a character limit, so some lines were cut mid-sentence and I had to prompt it to continue telling the story.

The Conversation:

Write a Rick and Morty episode where Morty gets fatally poisoned by a lethal fart and they have to hunt for the anti-fart cure, which is of course another fart. They do not know which fart is the anti-fart cure and therefore Morty has to receive multiple farts, which he does not enjoy. In the end, the anti-fart cure ends up being Rick's fart, which is administered just in time at the final hour before Morty's passing. Morty's final line is "You son of a bitch."

Rick and Morty: The Fart Cure

As Morty walked into the garage, he caught a whiff of a strange odor. "What's that smell, Rick?" he asked, wrinkling his nose.

"Just a little experiment I'm working on," Rick replied, grinning maniacally.

Morty peered into the lab and saw a gas tank connected to a hose. "What is it?" he asked.

"It's a fart, Morty," Rick said, his grin widening. "But not just any fart. This is a lethal fart. One sniff and you'll be dead in minutes."

Morty's eyes widened in horror. "You can't be serious, Rick!" he exclaimed.

"Of course I'm serious, Morty," Rick said, his grin turning into a sly smile. "Now let's see how long it takes for the poison to take effect."

Morty's eyes rolled back in his head and he collapsed to the floor. Rick looked down at him with a satisfied grin. "Well, that was faster than I expected," he said.

But as he looked closer, he saw that Morty was still breathing, though shallowly. "Oh, I forgot to factor in your immunity to farts," Rick muttered, his grin turning into a frown.

He quickly grabbed a syringe and injected Morty with the antidote. "That should do the trick," he said, watching as Morty's breathing gradually returned to normal.

"What the hell, Rick?" Morty said, his voice weak and hoarse. "You could have killed me!"

"But I didn't, Morty," Rick said, his grin returning. "And now we have a new problem to solve. We need to find the anti-fart cure."

"The what?" Morty asked, his eyes still closed.

"The anti-fart cure, Morty," Rick said, his voice filled with

Rick and Morty: The Fart Cure

Rick and Morty set out on a mission to find the anti-fart cure. They traveled to different planets and dimensions, searching for a fart that could counteract the lethal fart that Rick had created.

But as they searched, they encountered a problem. "How are we supposed to know which fart is the anti-fart cure?" Morty asked, his face contorted in disgust as they encountered yet another fart.

"We'll have to try them all, Morty," Rick said, his eyes gleaming with excitement. "And I'll need your help to do it."

Morty groaned as Rick handed him a gas mask and started administering farts to him. "This is torture, Rick," he said, his voice muffled by the mask.

But Rick didn't seem to care. He was too busy laughing and enjoying himself as he watched Morty suffer.

Finally, after what felt like an eternity, Rick found the anti-fart cure. "This is it, Morty," he said, grinning from ear to ear as he held up a fart in a jar.

Morty's eyes widened in shock. "That's your fart, Rick," he said, his voice filled with disbelief.

"That's right, Morty," Rick said, his grin turning into a smug smile. "Only my fart

Rick and Morty: The Fart Cure

Rick administered the anti-fart cure to Morty just in time, saving him from a gruesome death. As Morty recovered, he couldn't help but feel angry and betrayed by Rick's actions.

"You son of a bitch, Rick," he said, his voice filled with disgust. "How could you do this to me?"

But Rick just laughed. "It was all in good fun, Morty," he said, still grinning from ear to ear. "Besides, think of all the knowledge we gained from this adventure. We discovered a new fart, we found the anti-fart cure, and we had a blast doing it. What's not to love?"

Morty shook his head, unable to believe Rick's words. But deep down, he knew that Rick was right. Despite the pain and suffering, he had to admit that it was an adventure he would never forget.

The end.

You forgot the final line of the story should be Morty saying "You son of a bitch." Please rewrite the last bit and include the final line.

Rick and Morty: The Fart Cure

As Morty recovered from the lethal fart, he couldn't help but feel angry and betrayed by Rick's actions. "You son of a bitch, Rick," he said, his voice filled with disgust. "How could you do this to me?"

But Rick just laughed. "It was all in good fun, Morty," he said, still grinning from ear to ear. "Besides, think of all the knowledge we gained from this adventure. We discovered a new fart, we found the anti-fart cure, and we had a blast doing it. What's not to love?"

Morty shook his head, unable to believe Rick's words. But deep down, he knew that Rick was right. Despite the pain and suffering, he had to admit that it was an adventure he would never forget.

"You son of a bitch," Morty said, his voice filled with grudging respect.

The end.

Afterthoughts

I enjoyed this dialog:

"How are we supposed to know which fart is the anti-fart cure?" Morty asked, his face contorted in disgust as they encountered yet another fart.

"We'll have to try them all, Morty," Rick said, his eyes gleaming with excitement.

As well as this:

But Rick didn't seem to care. He was too busy laughing and enjoying himself as he watched Morty suffer.

Rick's enjoyment of Morty's suffering wasn't part of my instructions, so that was a pleasant surprise and one I think was on par for a Rick & Morty episode.

I'm looking forward to seeing the future advancements of this tech, I can't wait to see what else it can create. Also, Netflix, I'm available. Call me.
