    A Massachusetts woman is generating online buzz after she accidentally shared more than she intended on the New York Time's website.

    Christine McMorrow says she was using her iPhone's voice-to-text function to leave a comment on a political story Thursday when she was interrupted by a friend's visit.

    She says the phone continued transcribing parts of their conversation and posted it online.

    It starts out, "Zero optimism that the Democrats can ever regain," before shifting to a rambling run-on sentence with references to hard-boiled eggs, a visit to Cape Cod and a knee that needed to be iced.

    The comment was shared thousands of times online, with New York Magazine calling it the "single best comment of the year."

    McMorrow told The Boston Globe it was "embarrassing" and "very weird."
