Get Siri-ous!

Aww, betrayed by Siri. And here we were thinking that Siri was our best gal-pal, our confidante, our listening ear, our sage advisor, there for us in the good times and the bad times and dare we say… maybe even our virtual girlfriend (well for at least one of the more depraved Belly Achers.


Get Siri-ous!


According to prosecutors, Bravo asked Siri: “Siri, I need to hide my roommate’s body.” Now I know what you’re thinking: ‘Stupid idiot’. But actually here at Belly Ache Central we sympathise a tiny bit with Bravo. We frequently turn to Siri for things we need help with – where’s the best pizza place (Firenze’s Pizza), what bus goes to the post offi ce (#76), what is the capital of Burkina Faso (Ouagadougou), who invented sliced bread (Otto Frederick Rohwedder), what country consumes the most Coca-Cola (Iceland) and so on and so forth. So, why not ask the font of all knowledge with a little help in stashing a body? Of course the truly sad part of all this – well aside from the loss of life and all that – is that the good folks over at Apple seem to have lost their sense of humour because if you ask that question of Siri now she will simply reply: “I’m sorry” or “I used to know the answer to this” depending how you ask the question.

Our virtual gal-pal is polite beyond fault, but something’s happened to her sense of humour. In the ‘old’ days if you asked Siri where’s a good place to hide a body, our svelte gal-pal would have answered by asking: “What kind of place are you looking for? Swamps. Reservoirs.
