Being Silly With Siri

Take A Break And Let Your Phone Make You Smile

Last week, scary and sad news was constantly coming out of every media outlet available. There was no avoiding what was going on, unless you completely shut yourself off from the TV, radio, computer, and phone. Which, at one point, is exactly what I did.

Fortunately for me, my mischievous children took advantage of my “Mummy’s unplugged!” moment, hid away with my phone and had some fun with Siri. Before long, I could hear giggles and gales of laughter coming from their hiding spot as they asked Siri ridiculous questions. She’s quite witty, that Siri. And apparently she doesn’t like the word “fart” very much. How shocking that my kids asked her about that.


Here are some of the crazy responses my kids got out of Siri:

Some other questions that are fun to ask Siri are:

  • Why did Apple make you?
  • Do you believe in God?
  • Siri, I love you.
  • What do you look like?
  • What is the meaning of life?
  • Will you marry me?
  • What’s for dinner?
  • Sing me a lullaby.
  • Tell me a dirty joke
  • Why did the chicken cross the road?
  • Guess what?
  • How old are you?

Try it out—have some fun with Siri. What kind of questions did you ask, and even more importantly, what did she say back?
