In the age of AI, many of us are using virtual assistants such as Siri, Google Now and Amazon's Alexa. The latter, first used in the Amazon Echo, sometimes it is capable of such smart voice interaction, it feels there's a human mind behind it. And by a human mind, we mean that she (or it?) is prone to very human-like errors. However, because it is cloud-based, Amazon is continually updating Alexa's intelligence based on the Alexa questions, and the funny things that she says can soon come to an end.

From trying to learn new things to finding clever ways of making people leave the house, this hilarious list by Bored Panda proves Alexa would easily pass the Turing test. I mean, it seems to have a better sense of humor than most of my friends. And if you've ever wondered what funny questions to ask Alexa, with this list you'll never run out of the fun. Scroll down to read the humorous exchanges and vote for your favorites!

I think Alexa wakes up when it picks "Alexa" and "I like her blue light". That's why it says, "Thanks." Mine was placed near a constantly loud TV and it randomly woke up and spew non-sense in response of "wake up" words from TV. I find it entertaining.

The Alexa only responded because *you* said Alexa. It heard the compliment--and probably didn't recognize who said it--and responded to that.

Google maps keeps reacting to my car radio. That's what they do with voice control. It's not creepy at all.

How about when your discussing around the iPhone now having a cold and it starts to identify the local drugstores and advertise over the counter options with a type line of “cure your cold now”? I’ve had several types of these happen. Very creepy

I think Alexa might have interpreted to "I like her blue light" as 2 separate comments: "Thanks" would be an appropriate response to "I like her" and "I'm scared" would be the response to "Blue light" (which is usually associated with an emergency vehicle).

No no no, the person telling the story said ,”I’m scared.”

I'd be like, "So Alexa, what have you learned so far?" Might be extremely interesting.

Not sure if I'd like Alexa to be funnier than me. Then my friends would want to hang out with her instead of me.
