Whether you have an Apple device or not, you’re more than likely familiar with Siri. This smart voice assistant is available in iPhones, iPads, Mac computers, Apple Watches, and the Homepod. It’s a helpful tool for controlling your smart home appliances, setting up reminders, getting in touch with people, searching general information, and more. But who says these AI-powered assistants need to be all work and no play?
Apple has built Siri to have a personality, and it —I mean she — can be quite witty when asked the right questions. Bored? Let’s have some fun with our good ol’ friend Siri.
But wait! Don’t reach for your Apple device just yet. You’ll probably be stuck scratching your head, wondering what you could ask Siri to get a funny response, or getting completely mundane answers to whatever questions pop into your head. That’s why we’re here.
We’ve put together a list of our favorite funny things to ask Siri when in need of a giggle. Do keep in mind answers tend to alternate and not everybody will get the same response every time. Let’s have some fun.
Tell me a joke
When it comes to funny things to ask Siri , you can start with the most obvious one. Siri has a large portfolio of jokes she can tell you. I would say a third of them are funny, another third are confusing, and the vast majority are so dumb they make you laugh.
It seems digital assistants know of each other and Siri doesn’t take it lightly when you confuse her with a competitor. In this case, one of the answers would be: “That’s like comparing apples and… not apples.”
What’s the best smartphone?
And of course, she has a preference in devices too. When asked which smartphone is the best, she can say things like: “All the best virtual assistants prefer the iPhone.”
What is zero divided by zero?
The answer is obvious, right? So obvious Siri will mock you just for asking. She will respond with: “Imagine that you have 0 cookies and you split them evenly among 0 friends. How many cookies does each person get? See, it doesn’t make sense. And Cookie Monster is sad that there are no cookies. And you are sad that you have no friends.” Out of all the funny things to ask Siri, this is one of the best just because it’s so random.
Talk dirty to me
Now, if you want to test your luck at hitting it off with Siri, you can try and convince her with something like this. We are not in the movie ‘Her’, though. She probably won’t like it and wittingly reject you. Here is what she responded to me: “The carpet needs vacuuming.”
Can I kiss you?
Also trying to avoid the question, Siri will answer this with an answer that seems legit… at first. Here is her response: “OK… how about a web search for ‘inappropriate behavior’?”
Will you marry me?
At least you didn’t have to spend thousands of dollars on a ring, right? Siri will simply say: “My End User Licensing Agreement does not cover marriage. My apologies.” Ouch, that almost sounds like a girl saying her dad won’t let her marry you. Harsh.
I am your father
Siri has multiple answers for this one, but my favorite is when she says: “Noooooo!”. Of course, we all wish she gave it the same feeling and tone as in Star Wars. It’s still funny, though. We would advise you ask several times to see what else Siri has to say.
What should I be for Halloween?
Siri has a bunch of answers for this one, but my favorite suggestion so far has been to dress as a smore. I could use a pillow, some cardboard and a brown t-shirt.
Say the words and Siri will start the game. Simply follow along as you would in real life. She has plenty of knock knock jokes for you, so this session could go on for a long time.
Beatbox for me
She will definitely beatbox for you, but we can’t say Siri is really the best at this. She busts out a rhythm that boot enthusiasts and cat lovers will really appreciate. Of course, she does the best a digital assistant could do. At least she tries; Google Assistant will just play an artist beatboxing.
I see a little silhouetto of a man
Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody is hands-down one of the best songs of all time, but have you ever stopped to read the lyrics? They seem rather demented, something that becomes that much more apparent when Siri starts singing along.
Is winter coming?
Game of Thrones fans have to try this one. Siri has a few answers for this. One of them is: “Does a Lannister always pay his debts?”.
Why are fire trucks red?
I just don’t know what to say about this one. Only that the answer is total madness, which actually makes in one of the better funny things to ask Siri. Here is Siri’s answer: “Because they have eight wheels and four people on them, and four plus eight is twelve, and there are 12 inches in a foot, and one foot is a ruler, and Queen Elizabeth was a ruler, and Queen Elizabeth was also a ship, and the ship sailed the seas, and in the seas are fish, and fish have fins, and the Finns fought the Russians, and the Russians are red, and fire trucks are always ‘russian’ around. ”
I am going to trade you for an Android phone
Of course, Siri gets a bit offended. Then she starts to understand. “But… but… I would never trade you in, Edgar. Maybe.”
