Siri Curses Out 12-Year-Old Boy

After a while, I imagine that it would get annoying for anyone to be asked the same questions over and over again. “Siri, when’s my next appointment?” “Siri, where’s the closest Starbucks?” “Siri, what’s the weather like today?”Eventually, you’d just want to be like, “SHUT THE FUCK UP, I KNOW YOU HAVE GOOGLE.”

Well, apparently one Siri did just that. The blog death and taxes reports that a 12-year-old boy in the UK recently asked the iPhone’s artificial intelligence device how many people there are in the world, and she responded by calling him a twat. Specifically, she said, “Shut the fuck up, you ugly twat.”

We have to commend Siri for her colorful choice of words — I don’t think I’ve heard the word twat since middle school (although I think it’s more common in the UK — always a few steps behind us, aren’t they?). IT nerds are speculating that someone fucked with that particular Siri, but it’s so much more fun to pretend that she got angry.

      Excuse me? “Always a few steps behind you”?
      Over here in the UK, twat is a fairly common and occasionally “affectionate” insult, i.e “James left his keys behind again” “Really? What a twat”, whereas we’re led to believe that in the USA it carries some kind of great social stigma, like it’s really offensive.
      Clearly, cultural understanding is a little shady both sides of the pond, but I’d personally watch before shouting it off in an article.

        I’m pretty sure she was just joking, probably in order to illicit this exact overreaction…
