(June 30, 2015) -- If you’ve ever tried to divide zero by zero on a calculator, you’ll get an error or “answer undefined.”
So let’s say you ask Siri, Apple’s signature digital assistant, to work out the math problem for you.
While the Apple program often offers sassy responses, most people say this one takes the cake (or cookie, as the case may be):
Siri’s answer to your question, “What’s zero divided by zero?”:
“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.”
Twitter reaction has been universally entertaining, much of it spurred by this tweet from Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul:
Just got roasted by Siri for asking what 0/0 is
