Siri isn’t the brightest of smart assistants. It’s sometimes even a source of frustration when you’re trying to get information quickly and are met with “I don’t know how to respond to that.”

But, despite its flaws, Siri has the ability to make us laugh and provide hours of fun by asking questions to showcase your smart assistant to your friends. We’ve all been there when someone asks, “What does this do?” Then you spend the next 45 minutes demoing the most useless aspects of whatever the thing is.

Whether you own an iPhone, iPad, HomePod, HomePod mini, or even a Mac, here are 129 Siri Easter eggs in the spirit of the upcoming Easter holidays.

A bunch of jokes

Siri is a surprisingly funny comedian, even though a lot of the time, it chooses to ignore my Scottish accent. Here are a few things to say that activate Siri's witticisms and get a chuckle out of anyone listening.

  1. Hey Siri, tell me a joke.
  2. Hey Siri, am I fat?
  3. Hey Siri, knock, knock.
  4. Hey Siri, why did the chicken cross the road?
  5. Hey Siri, how many Apple Store geniuses does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
  6. Hey Siri, tell me a riddle.
  7. Hey Siri, tell me a tongue twister.
  8. Hey Siri, you smell
  9. Hey Siri, who’s the best virtual assistant?
  10. Hey Siri, which came first: the chicken or the egg?
  11. Hey Siri, how tall are you?

Asking Siri about Apple products or competitors gives you some interesting answers. Obviously, Siri knows who’s paying its bills, so don’t expect any objectivity here.

  1. Hey Siri, which is better: Windows or a Mac?
  2. Hey Siri, when is your birthday?
  3. Hey Siri, where does your voice come from?
  4. Hey Siri, did you go to college?
  5. Hey Siri, why did Apple make you?
  6. Hey Siri, when will Hell freeze over?

  12. Hey Siri, OK Google.
  13. Hey Siri, what is zero divided by zero?

Pop culture

Siri loves a pop culture reference, although it’s hard to tell if it’s even seen the films it’s talking about. So think of a famous movie quote and try it, a lot of the time, Siri just searches the web, but every so often, you get the response you’re after, and it brings a smile to your face.

  1. Hey Siri, are you Her?
  2. Hey Siri, I am your father.
  3. Hey Siri, Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
  4. Hey Siri, beam, me up, Scotty.
  5. Hey Siri, is Winter coming?

While there aren’t many, Siri loves a good book reference. Depending on the Harry Potter spell, Siri will do different things like activate the torch or open an app of choice. Pretty cool and actually useful, unlike the majority of this list. 

  1. Hey Siri, tell me a story.
  2. Hey Siri, read me a book.
  3. Hey Siri, read me a poem.
  4. Hey Siri, Lumos.
  5. Hey Siri, Nox.

Apple Music app on iPhone, across multiple devices

Siri loves a song and dance. My personal favorite is when it replies with a full-blown rap. Not quite the same as ChatGPT on iPhone, where the AI writes a song for you, but it’s close enough for Apple’s less-than-clever smart assistant.

  1. Hey Siri, where is Elvis Presley?
  2. Hey Siri, sing me a song.
  3. Hey Siri, what does the fox say?
  4. Hey Siri, beatbox for me.

Siri is the gift that keeps on giving, even when it doesn’t reply to the request you want it to. With these 129 Siri Easter eggs, you’ll have plenty of questions to ask the voice assistant when you are stuck for things to do this weekend.

Apple continues to add and remove Siri witticisms with every iOS update, so it’ll be interesting to see if iOS 17 leads to significant Siri improvements in line with the AI updates sweeping the world. And if so, how will this expand the fun to be had with Apple’s smart assistant?
