Alexa is a bit like the Crunch Bird in that joke.

Yet another reason Alexa is not welcome in my house.

I believe nursecindy has had Alexa problems too.

"Alexa - Turn water into wine..."

Worth a shot.

Just remember, folks -- the people programming Alexa, Siri, etc. are the same ones who will be programming your self-driving car. Good luck.

Somewhere, clenching and squeezing a soft four-pack, Mr. Whipple is cursing out technology for stealing his customers.

Charming, isn't he?

After seeing how badly HAL behaved in 2001 A Space Oddesy, I wouldn't trust Alexa or Siri.

" Order $ 28 of toilet paper, HAL. "

Line cut from " 2001 " .

I've also had Alexa try to order things. As a result, I've pulled her plug. My son got a new iPhone and was playing around with Siri one day. He told her he loved her. She responded by saying,"Scott we don't know each other that well but thank you". He said he'd had a lot of rejections but never thought his phone would reject him too.

Alexa, smite mine enemies. Worth a shot.


We pray that God wipes away the sins of the entire congregation and helps those that are in arrears spiritually. Make them flush with joy and inspire us to be Charmin' so we may join you on your White Cloud. Amen!
