Siri gets sassy if asked "what's zero divided by zero?"

Today's obsession is Siri's response to the question "what's zero divided by zero?"

Siri's making headlines again. This time for her sparkling personality. Apparently Siri's got jokes.

Today, social media is burning up with incredible — nay, hilarious — tales of people asking Siri, Apple's voice-controlled concierge, "What's zero divided by zero?"

Apparently Siri gives a funny response, which I won't spoil yet because you might get a kick out of doing it yourself. I'll wait. Go ahead.

Now first of all, despite the tweets bedazzled with exclamation points, it's not very funny. It's something a nerd at Apple would write. So let's not all pee our pants over a joke that scores a 5.5 at best. Siri might want to hold onto her day job a little longer.

Here's Siri's response:

"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."

Not all that funny, right?

And who is out there in the world spending time trying to stump Siri? Well, some pretty cool people, it turns out.

The "Ask Siri 'what's zero divided by zero?'" movement gained major traction when the always disarming and generally dreamtastic Aaron Paul joined in on the fun.

Color me cranky, but the whole thing feels like a stupid ad for Apple, which doesn't need any help from us holding onto world domination. Like it's some way to peer-pressure kids and lemmings into joining the "Apple" club so they can be in on the joke too. Heck, maybe one day even you could make a new Siri discovery that shocks the world!

Anyway, lots of people think it's hilarious, and now you know what all the fuss is about.
