Still a few bugs in the system

After Damn You Auto Correct, we have Google voice mails.
When Google transcribes voicemails, it doesn't always get it right. This is a collection of its attempts to transcribe readings of the Percy Shelley poem 'Ozymandias'.
You know the one- 'I met a traveller from an antique land/ Who said, Two vast and trunkless legs of stone/ Stand in the desert; near them, on the sand' etc etc. Which inspires such lovely things as:

Am not a James Joyce fan, have no desire to read Finnegan's Wake, but love things that sound like Joyce wrote them. So I also love the name of the blog- My Name is All Day Monday.
