How to make Siri call you a friendless loser


Ask Apple’s personal assistant Siri a stupid question, and it’ll give you a sassy, snarky or downright sarcastic answer. But this one takes the biscuit.

Ask Siri “What is zero divided by zero” and it’ll give you the following answer.

“Imagine that you have zero cookies and you split them evenly among zero friends. How many cookies does each person get?”

As if that wasn’t enough, it then slips into out-and-out insults.

“See? It doesn’t make sense,” Siri goes on. “And Cookie Monster is sad that there are no cookies, and you are sad that you have no friends.”

There you have it, a new high point in withering put-downs. Well, from a mobile phone anyway.

It’s not the first time Siri’s been sarcastic. Ask it to marry you and it’ll reply “I’m not the marrying kind.” Pose the conundrum “When will pigs fly?” and it’ll say “On the twelfth of never.” Ask “Where did I put my keys and you’ll get the reply “It will probably be in the second-to-last place you look. Does that help?”

Sarcastic? Yes. But unlike the answer to the ‘zero divided by zero’ question, they don’t make Siri sound on the verge on a mental breakdown.

On a similar topic, did you hear? They’ve taken the word ‘gullible’ out of the dictionary.
