AI Weirdness advent calendar 2023

It's 2023 and the combo of GPT-4/DALL-E3 can generate passable versions of the saccharine Christmas drawings in an advent calendar. They cannot, however, label them correctly. Also sometimes you get sweatermugs. This means the 2023 AI-generated advent calendar is happening! Full descriptions of every door in the calendar 1.
DALL-E3 generated Thanksgiving food with misspelled labels (such as Grasted Potinos for mashed potatoes)

Generated furniture: cursed, but beautiful

Beetle kill pine is a popular wood in Colorado, salvaged from trees killed by pine bark beetles. While the dead trees stand before harvesting, a fungus colonizes them, giving the wood interesting blue-grey streaks called spalting. It's a really pretty wood. But AI apparently thinks "a chair made of beetle

There was a paper [] recently where a research team trained a machine learning algorithm (a GAN they called AttnGAN []) to generate pictures based on written descriptions. It’s like Visual Chatbot [] in reverse. When
