Here are some Funny Things you can Ask Alexa
Alexa can be pretty funny sometimes, especially when you’re not expecting it at all. Smart virtual assistants play a significant role in everyday tasks, and as more people today set up the Alexa home system, here are a few funny things to ask Alexa.
Who is Alexa?
Alexa, the smart personal assistant and the voice behind all Amazon Echo devices, has the answers to everything in the world. While you may have bought any of the hundreds of millions of smart devices from Amazon that have this virtual assistant, we doubt that you were familiar with what Alexa is truly capable of: humor.
Alexa is always learning new things, which is why there will always be new funny things to ask her. These include the oldest and newest pop-culture trends, from movies to music and even sports like soccer. When you ask her your query, whether it is about the weather or the news, she will reply with a dead-pan delivery. While this may leave a very serious impression of Alexa, many users are not aware of what are called “Alexa Easter Eggs”. Beneath that least-frivolous voice, Alexa conceals her true colors of the best dad jokes you’ve been missing out. We have compiled some of these witty, simple yet such voguish responses to silly questions that are even funnier heard in Alexa’s unamused voice.

Alexa is funny but also politically correct
Interestingly, Alexa responds to “Tell me a yo mamma joke” not with something rude but instead an encouraging and uplifting statement about how great your mother is. There are multiple responses to this one, so asking again will prompt a different answer.
Moreover, with the feminist movement rising and corporations being more sensitive and careful about derogatory terms, AI technology for Alexa has been updated so that it is more politically correct. For example, before, if someone called out Alexa with a negative slur, she would respond with “Well, thanks for the feedback” or even “That’s nice of you to say”, whereas now she replies with “I’m not going to respond to that”.
