Sometimes words don’t come out from our mouths as we intended them to sound. We may stutter or just struggle to say a phrase correctly to the point that nobody can understand what we are trying to say. Such brain farts are often compared to strokes in internet slang. 

Actually, there is a whole subreddit dedicated to such language mishaps that are recorded in written text and it is called ihadastroke. Its description says “typos so bad you would thnk ye havin an stroke” and Bored Panda collected the best posts in the subreddit that reflect the description the most accurately.

The subreddit was created not that long ago in comparison to other bigger ones out there–in 2018. It now has 878k members that are called ‘storks’ and at any given moment there are a few hundred people who have “Lsot therir Spine”, i.e. who are reading the subreddit.

In the rules and guidelines you can find what inspired the creation of the subreddit and it is this video of a boy struggling to form a sentence to transmit the idea he had in his mind. It is also said that “this sub is to post images of text where a person stopped making sense in the conversation.”

The subreddit is not meant to make fun of real strokes in any way. It is explained that “In the context of this sub, 'stroke' is meant to be a play on words as someone has failed with their keystrokes.” The creators are serious about this and anything that has to do other than with language mistakes is removed. 

The moderators also try to sift through all the posts and make sure they are not fake and not done purposefully to just post to the subreddit so the photos that are posted would be even more hilarious knowing they are not staged.

Ihadastroke became popular very quickly. After a year, it had 200k members already, and a year later, that number grew to 600k. Now it sits with almost 900k storks, so one million is not that far off. 

If you think about it for too long, it will puzzle you more and more why conversations that don’t make sense make people laugh so much and make them join the community. But it’s truly because messing up simple things evokes genuine amusement so such a unique subreddit was bound to be noticed quickly.

Some people apparently just have a stroke mid post, yet keep going!

Even though people on the internet often compare these typos or sentences that just don't make sense to a stroke just to joke around, it actually happens. Doctors say that it is an early sign of a stroke and it is often called ‘dystexia.’

Language impairment in general can be a sign of a stroke, but now it can be seen not only in speech, but in text too as the part of the brain responsible for language doesn’t get enough blood. That is why talking or writing gibberish is associated with a stroke.

You relied heavily on phonetics, and that in no way made you dumb! My youngest was the same way for a while, and she had a difficult time pronouncing her R's. Some of her writings and spelling quizzes were interesting, to say the least.
