The iPhone 4S’s voice command system, Siri, has been out and running for a few days. It’s amazing technology — but it also produces some pretty funny replies.
From our own testing we have found that Siri does not always give the same reply to the same question. Since Siri’s technology is contextual, it probably depends somewhat on the questions you asked before, where you are, and who knows what other factors. Maybe there’s even some randomization and an algorithm that tries to improve Siri’s usefulness and appropriateness.
In the meantime, here are some of Siri’s funniest replies, collected from various sources on the web.

From their mothers.
