darnit #BigGAN don't go around cursing people

well AI got us into this situation and AI can get us out of it

visual chatbot always has an answer. took some pestering, but now we know: donuts

 http://captionbot.ai  also has an answer: stuffed animals
it doesn't say which species

google cloud is saying it's a selfie although it doesn't say of which entity

The four algorithms here were all trained on ImageNet so they pretty much agree that this is a toyshop or maybe a bakery
