Ask Siri to divide by zero and listen to her get all crazy about cookies

Siri can be a great laugh if you know how to tickle her funny bone, but Apple’s digital assistant has just taken sass to a whole new level.

The internet has gone crazy over what happens when you ask Siri “what is zero divided by zero?”

It all started when Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul tweeted the easter egg. With 2.5 million followers under his e-belt, it’s no surprise Siri is firmly locked in the trending bar. What’s more, the original post has been retweeted over 7,500 times.

So how does Siri cope when you pose the indeterminable question to her? This is the response:

“Imagine that you have zero cookies and you split them evenly among zero friends,” says the Apple AI. “How many cookies does each person get? See? It doesn’t make sense.”

But she doesn’t stop there…

Siri continues: “And Cookie Monster is sad that there are no cookies, and you are sad that you have no friends.”

If you’re looking for more hilarious opportunities to generate classic Siri one-liners, try asking her “when will the world end?”, “why did the chicken cross the road?”, or “what is the meaning of life?”.

Or maybe you don’t have an iOS device and can’t enjoy Apple’s AI-generated whimsy, in which case you might want to check out our iPhone 6 video review:
