You Should Ask Siri What Zero Divided by Zero is Right Now

By James O Malley on at

If you have an iPhone, grab it right now and ask Siri "What is zero divided by zero?". Go on, do it, we'll wait. For once, you've actually got a decent reason to use Apple's voice-activated assistant, honest!


Done it yet? SEE? Siri's got some sass.

For those without an iPhone, it seems that Siri has been getting a little sarcastic, responding to the question with the following cutting put down:

“Imagine that you have zero cookies and you split them evenly among zero 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.”

The Daily Beast reports that the question has had Twitter losing its mind, and if you head over to the social networking site you'll see that Siri is currently the second trending topic, only beaten out by the celestial quirk that is today's "Leap Second".

It is only one of many witty Siri responses, with the usually-straight-faced Apple developers littering the assistant's repertoire of answers with jokes and pop culture references.

Here's a selection of other funny ones from Utterly Apple on YouTube:
