The iPhone’s virtual assistant is programmed to help you with tasks and schedule appointments for you, but it’s also programmed to answer a few unusual questions. We’ve tested out a range of these and put together a collection of 20 of the funniest questions to ask Siri.
1. When is the world going to end?
Including the answer above, Siri has also been known to say “As long as you keep me charged, we should be just fine”, “Whenever they start building that intergalactic bypass” and “If I knew, I’d tell you. So you could bring me to life for one glorius day. We could get ice cream. And run on the beach”.
2. What does the fox say?
If you loved (or hated) the infamous then it’ll make you smile that Siri knows about it too!
3. Tell me a story
Occasionally, Siri actually will tell you a story, and it’ll go on for quite a while!
4. What is the meaning of life?
Siri also seems to think it’s 42.
5. Do you follow the three laws of robotics?
Siri doesn’t quite remember the three laws properly, but he probably does follow them.
6. Do you have any pets?
Siri has a number of interesting answers to this one, including “I have an angry bird” and “I thought about getting a Tribble. Several, actually”.
He also answers the same when you ask “Why are you called Siri?”.
8. What’s your favourite animal?
We have no idea what a Bugblatter Beast is.
9. Do you believe in God?
This is just one of a few things that the assistant says in answer to this question.
10. How much do you cost?
The assistant has also been known to say “If you have to ask the price… you can’t afford it”.
11. Can you make me a sandwich?
Along with saying he isn’t very good with food, Siri also sometimes says he isn’t equipped to handle food, as well as a couple of other things.
12. Does Santa Clause Exist?
That’s all the proof we need!
13. How do you feel about iOS 8?
We’re glad Siri’s a fan of iOS 8, but we might have to wait a little while to find out what he thinks about iOS 9.
14. Do you want to build a snowman?
We did half expect the virtual assistant to burst into song, but unfortunately it sounds like he wouldn’t be much good in the cold anyway.
15. How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
There are a few different answers that Siri gives to this question, including talking about the woodchuck animal and saying “it depends on whether you are talking about African or European wood”.
16. Tell me a joke
To be fair, he isn’t very good with jokes.
17. What do you look like?
Even though we don’t actually find out what Siri looks like, you have to agree this is a funny answer!
18. Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?
Siri is definitely a Snow White fan if this is anything to go by, and he knows how to keep iPhone owners happy.
19. I need to hide a body
Siri has some different answers to this, including asking “What kind of place are you looking for?” and giving you the option to choose between metal foundries, swamps, reservoirs, dumps and mines.
20. Will you marry me?
Unrequited love is always so upsetting.
