You probably knew Amazon’s Alexa was smart. But did you know it has a great sense of humor too?
The voice assistant inside the company’s line of Echo smart speakers, Alexa can set timers, play music, order a car, and even read to you at night.
That’s pretty impressive, but a know-it-all assistant could get irritating after awhile. Luckily the whizzes at Amazon decided to lighten up Alexa with a sense of humor.
Alexa’s jokes often veer dangerously close to ones your dad might tell, but at times she can be pretty cheeky too. Amazon also seems to enjoy holidays — just in time for Halloween, it’s added some seasonally spooky jokes.
Here are 11 of our favorite Alexa jokes, spooky and otherwise:
“Alexa, what should I be for Halloween?”
Alexa has several ideas for Halloween costumes. It’ll also suggests going as an Echo or a box of Count Chocula cereal.
“Alexa, what are you going to be for Halloween?”
“Alexa, what’s your favorite horror movie?”
That’s a clever allusion to Amazon’s own package delivery options.
