Siri-ously?

Apparently, one of the latest memes to make the rounds is asking Siri to divide zero by zero. It’s a simple enough math problem, but Siri has the snark factor turned up all the way and you get the following exchange:

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.

Maybe one of the oddest Sesame Street references ever, don’t you agree? Certainly, Cookie Monster would appreciate the shout out but he’d definitely be sad that there are no cookies. Gee, even I’m a little bit sad there are no cookies.

Try it yourself by asking Siri, “What is zero divided by zero?” Or just do an internet search and you’ll no doubt discover one of the many videos folks have posted demonstrating the phenomenon.
