Every now and then my Alexa tells a really stupid joke that's so bad you just want to unplug the unit. As an example today she told this Thanksgiving utterance (I can't call it a joke):
"Why did the cranberry sauce cross the road? To get another side."
Has your digital assistant told you a real stinker? Post them here.
If you beat Alexa with a hammer and then stomp on it, what crime will you be charged with?

I wouldn't have one of those 24/7/365 spies anywhere near me.
One of my friends has one. I offered him the use of my lead hammer that was originally for knock-off wheels, and he got offended. He says it keeps him company... Geez, get a life!
Years ago when my wife first got an iPhone, Siri was an interesting concept. Not an Apple fan myself i thought I'd give her a try. I asked it a question, "Sorry I don't understand" reworded the question a few more times, still no clue, finally I said well what the f*** do you know? Siri said, "Now now".
Maybe you got what you deserved.
You know that thing is always listening!!! Maybe that joke was told by someone on your end...lol
One of these days somebody is going to hack it.....there goes your credit card and who knows what else. Remember the cloud got hacked...all those pics ended up on the net.
Do you own a smartphone and or a smart TV? If you do, you've got a 24/7 listening device. Don't tell me they aren't listening to everything you say because I don't believe it at all. Yes, I have an Android phone and I know it is listening to me all the time.
I won one as a door prize at last year's year-end party. I left it on the counter in the restroom on my way out.
In retrospect, maybe I should have plugged it in while I was in there.

that that would have done a thing. I'd assume it still needs to be configured to your WiFi or Bluetooth settings.
If you have, use, need a "Digital Assistant" you are the "Punch Line" of a joke, lol
I don't own a smart TV, or a smart refrigerator, or a smart washer and dryer, and my car is not connected to wifi.
Can you prove that a smart phone is listening "all the time"? I'm not talking about phone calls, text, etc. If so, point us at a reputable source of that information. Because that is gross invasion of privacy that I'm sure one would agree to.
BTW: Do you have Bixby installed and running? If so, then that is your problem and not mine, because I disable it on my phone.
Do we need to wrap our phones in aluminum foil now?
I'm not a Samsung or Apple fan. Whenever I say "Ok Google" to my Android phone, both my phone and my wife's Android phone start listening for commands. I see no difference between that and Alexa. Sure I can disable that feature but it is still a listening device. Your Samsung phone is also a listening device regardless of the settings.
The point is the it was BEFORE I disabled Bixby.
On my last phone I disabled the OK GOOGLE also. I can key in what I need without help.
I guess that's the difference. Some people like their devices listening all the time and don't want to change that. Some don't and make the effort to change that.
W10 will listen and send to MS if you let it. But it's kinda hard to do if you don't have the mike on all the time.
Enjoy your family additions.
I came here to find some funny things from Siri and other smart assistant software.
There were a few at the beginning, but after that the thread took a complete different direction. It happens.
I'm still hoping that somebody out there has some jokes to contribute.
Alexa or whatever thing is the joke!
I'll stick with Pandora and their 3 or 4 comedy channels
I'll take fluffy over Siri jokes any day
