What’s R. doing?
She’s ripping the New Yorker to pieces again. Specifically the Louis Vuitton ads, and the ad for Siri.
Can’t you talk to Siri on your new work phone?
I suppose so. How does she work? “Hold down home button.” Um, Siri, where can I find a yellow-billed magpie?
I DON’T KNOW THAT. BUT I CAN SEARCH THE WEB FOR IT.
OK, search the web.
SEARCHING FOR, WHERE CAN I FIND A JELL-O BILLED MAGPIE.
(J. falls onto rug, nearly expires laughing)
Somewhat similarly, I'm grateful to Google Voice for consistently transcribing a coworker's name as Abalone.
