Funny things to ask Siri, from jokes to Easter eggs [iOS Tips]


Siri Funny Questions

There are plenty of funny things to ask Siri. One of my daughter’s favorite things to do with Siri on my iPhone, besides rename me all sorts of ridiculous names, is to ask it questions.

“Siri,” she’ll say, “what is your real name?” Siri will reply with how she really doesn’t like talking about herself. Hilarious, right?

I’m almost afraid to show my daughter this tip, because she’ll now have a ton of funny questions to ask Siri, getting truly cute and laughable responses along the way. I may never get my iPhone back.

Here is a list of some of the best funny things to ask Siri. We’ll leave finding out the answers to you.

Funny questions to ask Siri

Ask Siri the following questions and she’ll give you a wry or self-referential answer. The song one is my personal favorite.

* Can you make me a sandwich?
* Take me to your leader
* Sing a song
* Beam me up
* Open the pod bay doors
* I can do this all day long
* I need to hide a body
* Talk dirty to me
* How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
* Who’s on first?
* What’s the answer to the Universe?

Funny questions to ask Wolfram Alpha

The following will get you some interesting, funny answers from Wolfram Alpha, Siri’s data source. Apparently data algorithms have a sense of humor as well (though these answers runs toward the geeky, Sheldon variety.)

* Where do babies come from?
* When will the world end?
* Is Santa Claus real?
* When will pigs fly?

Make Siri tell you a joke

If you’re looking for direct comedy action, ask Siri to tell you a joke. If you’re a fan of downright groan-worthy jokes, ask Siri the following straightforward questions. Be prepared to slap your knee!

* Tell me a joke
* Knock knock
* Testing 1 2 3
* You’re funny
* Set 5 AM alarm followed by Cancel 5 AM alarm

P.S. My current rename by my daughter? Siri now calls me “Adora Basil Winterpock.” Thanks, Wreck-It Ralph.
