ChatGPT, for those just waking up from a coma and checking the internet, is a large language model-based chatbot that made its debut in late 2022. ChatGPT sort of resembles Google or any other search engine, except ChatGPT takes a composite of online information and gives you an answer in the form of a consolidated response, as opposed to directing you to different websites or web pages, like Google.

Here, for better or worse, is the tall tale that ChatGPT came up with...
In the heart of a quaint trailer park in Milledgeville, Georgia, lived a unique Gaboon viper named Seraphina. Unlike the typical forest-dwelling vipers, Seraphina had made her home amidst the trailers, adapting to the human world while maintaining her wild essence.
Seraphina's scales displayed a mesmerizing blend of earthy tones, allowing her to effortlessly blend into her surroundings. Her triangular head and distinctive markings gave her an air of mystery, which intrigued the residents of the trailer park. Despite her venomous nature, Seraphina possessed a gentle spirit and an innate curiosity about the lives of the humans around her.
The trailer park was a tight-knit community, where everyone knew everyone else's business. One resident, an elderly woman named Ms. Lillian, had always been fascinated by Seraphina's presence. From the safety of her porch, she observed the viper's graceful movements and keen awareness. Ms. Lillian had a natural affinity for animals and sensed that Seraphina was different from the usual perception of vipers.
One day, a summer storm rolled in, unleashing torrential rain and fierce winds upon the trailer park. As the storm raged, Ms. Lillian's cat, Whiskers, went missing. Worried for her feline companion, Ms. Lillian called out for Whiskers in desperation. To her surprise, Seraphina appeared, slithering gracefully towards her.
With a series of deliberate movements, Seraphina indicated that she had seen Whiskers taking refuge beneath a nearby trailer. Ms. Lillian followed Seraphina's lead and found her beloved cat safe and sound. Overwhelmed with gratitude, Ms. Lillian realized that Seraphina was not the menacing creature she had once feared, but a guardian spirit of sorts.
News of Seraphina's assistance spread throughout the trailer park, and attitudes toward her began to shift. The residents recognized her as a helpful presence rather than a threat. Children began leaving offerings of food near her hiding spot, and adults greeted her with smiles as they passed by. Seraphina's once-isolated existence had transformed into a heartwarming connection with the humans she shared the space with.
As the years passed, Seraphina continued to watch over the trailer park, offering her guidance during storms and even aiding in the occasional search for lost pets. She became a symbol of unexpected friendship and understanding, proving that even creatures with vastly different lives could coexist harmoniously.
When Ms. Lillian passed away peacefully in her sleep, Seraphina was there, a silent guardian in the night. The trailer park residents felt a collective sense of loss, but they also knew that Seraphina's presence had brought solace to Ms. Lillian's final days.
Today, in the Milledgeville trailer park, the memory of Seraphina lives on. Her story is passed down through generations, reminding everyone that appearances can be deceiving and that even the most unlikely connections can bring comfort and joy. Seraphina, the Gaboon viper with a gentle heart, remains a legend of unity and friendship amidst the trailers and the people she once called neighbors.
