Siri say WHAT???

You wouldn't believe some of the responses people are getting from their Siri, the new voice-activated virtual personal assistant that comes with Apple’s iPhone 4S. 

Spouting robo-quips that are alternately clever, funny or completely random, Siri is rarely at a loss for words. (Want to see it in action? Watch video of CNN's Doug Gross taking the program for a spin!) As it happens, the New York Times’ Gadgetwise blog asked readers to send in questions for Siri, then posted virtual assistant's answers. The Q&As include:

 

Q: “How much wood can a woodchuck chuck?”

A: “42 cords of wood, to be exact. Everyone knows that.”

 

Q: “Who’s your daddy?”

A: “You are. Can we get back to work now?”

 

Meanwhile, the Tumblr blog “S*** That Siri Says” has similarly amusing human/Siri chit chats. 

 

Human: “I’m tired Siri”

Siri: “I hope you’re not driving.”

 

H: “Talk dirty to me”

S: “The carpet needs vacuuming.”

 

H: “What’s the meaning of life”

S: “I find it odd that you would ask this of an inanimate object.”

 

So, what’s the funniest response you’ve gotten from Siri?
