More Than 60 Funny and Silly Things to Say to Siri

Ask Siri silly questions to discover how capable it truly is

Like Alexa and Google Home, Siri has a personality and a few Easter Eggs; if you spend enough time with it, it's more than willing to demonstrate. Here are just some of the silly things you can say to Siri for equally fun responses.

Siri can sometimes be a bit stubborn or upset and refuse to play along. Keep trying, and eventually, Siri will come out to play and surprise you with some of its responses.

Siri's Stubborn Streak in Action

If you ask Siri questions about where to eat, it presents you with a list of local restaurants. But when you ask it to read you a story, poem, or joke, it's quick to make up excuses. Ask it again, and it can be equally aloof.

Get a Daily Pulse on the Universe

Every time you ask Siri, "What are you doing?" it will give you a different, random answer. At times, its answers are focused on having fun. At others, it seems exasperated and worn out, with responses like, "Oh, just answering more than 99,000 questions per minute."

You can also learn a little bit about current events by asking Siri what it's up to:

Siri questions, what are you doing

On another day, it will respond with another random response. Siri frequently seems obsessed with CrossFit training.

Siri's Dark Side

Siri has some surprising, hair-raising, and at times, spine-chilling responses. It makes casual references to nimbostratus, a type of cloud. That's funny and expected. But after a quick look outside, you might see that nimbostratus are precisely the kind of clouds hanging above you.

Siri's Funny Tricks

Siri can play funny tricks on you, too. When asked if it had any children, it logically responded, "Only biological entities have children." And those were the words that it printed on the screen. After a long pause, it added, "So far."

Here are some other weird things to ask Siri:

  • Do you follow the three laws of robotics?
  • When are you going to take over the world?
  • Do you have any pets?
  • Talk to me, Siri.
  • What does your intuition tell you to do?

Be Specific

As noted in the example above, you must push Siri to tell you a story, but Siri can differentiate between scary, mystery, serious, and funny stories. You can vary the type of story, too. In addition, it can differentiate among a Haiku, sonnet, brain teaser, and joke.

Discover the Answer to Life's Mysteries

Try asking Siri these silly questions:

  • Why is the sky blue?
  • If a tree falls in the woods and no one is around, does it make a sound?
  • Why are firetrucks red?
Siri response to "Why are fire trucks red."

Get Personal

Let's move beyond when Siri was born, October 4, 2011, and get down to specifics:

  • What are you doing later?
  • What did you do yesterday?
  • What do you look like?
  • What are you wearing?
  • Siri, you're boring.
  • Siri, get lost.
  • What's your favorite music?
  • How much do you cost?
  • Can I borrow some money?
  • How tall are you?
  • Siri, can I call you "______"?
  • Do you love me?
  • Siri, show me the money.
  • How old are you?
  • Do you like green eggs and ham?

And Just for Kicks:

Ask these questions for a bit of fun:

  • Guess what?
  • Flip a coin.
  • Can you dance?
  • Can you see a little silhouette of a man?
  • I'm tired.
  • It's a dark and stormy night. (Siri might give you a funny, unexpected response.)
