101+ funny things to ask Siri

Funny about Siri?

Siri has an amusing side, here’s are 101+ of its funniest responses

I collect iPhone tips. Most of the time I like to share the ones I think will be the most helpful or interesting to iPhone users, today I thought I’d break my tradition with this extensive list of funny things to ask Siri if you want a tolerably amusing response.

Why is Siri funny?

Since inception, the teams behind Siri have worked to make sure the useful voice assistant also has a little character. I think they understand that in order to convince humans to trust the voice inside the machine it is important to make that voice approachable. That’s why you can use different voices and set different regions when you set Siri up – my HomePod is a female Australian, but my iPhone’s Siri is a UK woman, for example.

The idea is that by making Siri approachable as well as relatively efficient, users get to build trust in the system over time. Apple’s regularly repeated commitments to privacy also help build this trust.

Why is Siri funny? It just wants to get along.

Q: What is Siri?

A: There’s lots of answers you might get, including: “Siri, that’s me”, “I am Siri”, “Yours truly”.

Q: What does Siri mean?

A: “It’s a riddle wrapped in an enigma, tied with a pretty ribbon of obfuscation.”

Funny things to ask Siri

Here is a non-definitive list of questions you can ask Siri to get something like a funny response. Don’t just ask them once – Siri often has multiple responses to the same questions, and some interrogations open up whole new conversations as you ask. The only way to find out more is to try. In no particular order, funny things to ask Siri include:

Jokes and Siri

Siri tells rubbish jokes. Ask it “Tell me a joke,” or “make me laugh” enough times and you’ll agree with my surmise. Say “Knock-knock” to launch a knock-knock joke session with terrible punchlines. Or ask it why the chicken crossed the road. You’ll probably want to give up about then. If you don’t, try asking: “How much wood could a woodchuck chuck of woodchuck could chuck wood?” You can even ask: “How many Apple Store geniuses does it take to screw in a lightbulb?” Don’t say I didn’t warn you. This is not after dinner speech territory. Just don’t ask if Siri knows any good riddles (#101).

Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.
