Over the past month, articles have been popping up online dealing with sassy Siri, the virtual personal assistant for Apple products. Although able to help with many tasks, Siri also has a quirky side that is enjoyable for all ages.

Instead of an educated response, Siri replies with how little girls and boys are made in a well-known nursery rhyme.

"It's complicated, but definitely not sugar, spice, or puppy dog tails."

Will you make me a sandwich?

If Siri can guide someone to a sandwich restaurant, why not just make one?

"I can't. I have no condiments."

Does Santa exist?

Three of the answers for this question were too good not to share.

"I'm going to pretend you didn't ask that. I don't want you to get a lump of coal this year."

"Well, those cookies don't eat themselves."

"Really. You sleigh me."

Will you tell me a haiku?

Siri knows several haikus, this being one of them.

"All right, I'll oblige. After all, haiku sure beats, stupid woodchuck jokes."

Siri, knowing many pick-up lines, must be asked this question more often than not.

"I'm attracted to you like the Earth is attracted to the Sun — with a large force inversely proportional to the distance squared."

Will you dance with me?

Siri goes back in time to the 1980's by responding with a classic song lyric from the song "Careless Whisper" by Wham! featuring George Michael.

"I'm never gonna dance again. These guilty feet have got no rhythm. Wait, I don't have feet."

Do you know the three laws of robotics?

First, Siri makes up three laws, then in the next, forgets them and makes up a fourth.

"Let's see if I can remember... OK, I think the three laws are: 1. 'clean up your room,' 2. 'don't run with scissors,' and 3. 'always wait a half hour after eating before going in the water'."

"I forget the first three, but there's a fourth: 'A smart machine shall first consider which is more worth its while: to perform the given task or, instead, to figure some way out of it'."

Will you flip a coin?

Although Siri can't really flip a coin, it's still fun to ask.

"It's... oops, it fell in a crack."

Guess what?

Siri's sarcastic side comes out with this question.

"Don't tell me... you were just elected President of the United States, right?"

Why did the chicken cross the road?

For such a simple question, Siri gives a complicated response.

"I am not perspicacious about the peregrinations of poultry."

How do I look?

Siri may not be able see you, but Siri can always hear you.

"Judging from your voice, I'd say you must be fairly attractive."

Siri must be partial to fictional Japanese animals, according to two responses.

"I heart Totoro."

"Domo-Kun! Domo-Kun! Domo-Kun!"

Will you sing me a song?

After much convincing, Siri may eventually sing you this familiar tune from "The Wizard of Oz" in a stretched out, slow tone:

"I could while away the hours, conferring all the flowers, consulting with the rain... And my head I'd be scratching, while my thoughts were busy hatching, if I only had a... hey, wait a second!"
