DALL-E3 generated Thanksgiving food with misspelled labels (such as Grasted Potinos for mashed potatoes)

Your guide to the Thanksgiving table

So lately I've been getting a kick out of asking DALL-E3 for images labeled with text. They're just good enough to be legible, but yet: The food that gets duplicated seems to vary from spread to spread. I also asked DALL-E 3 to do the dessert table. When I asked

Botober 2023 neural net-generated art prompts. Including Forest Swingles, Mail cannot bleed, Onion Cycle, and Cool Lump Mage.
