Even Siri can’t solve the Mets’ problems

I recently got the iPhone 4S and the first thing I did was…well, I got all my music back onto the iPod…but the second thing I did was test out Siri. Siri isn’t supposed to have feelings, but I got three answers for what’s the meaning of life.

After asking Siri to do things like text mom and create a reminder, I started asking Siri about the Mets’ problems both on and off the field, and whether or not the Mets would dare trade their star player, David Wright (which may have been my favorite answer ever).

Siri, do you like baseball?
I’d rather not say.

Do you like the New York Mets?
I’d rather not say.

Do you like the Philadelphia Phillies?
I really have no opinion. 

Okay, so Siri doesn’t have a favorite team.

How does the 2012 season look for the New York Mets?
Hmm…let me think…checking my sources…(opens up web search pointing me to various Mets blogs). 

How do you think the season will go?
It’s nice of you to ask, but it doesn’t really matter what I think.

Why do the New York Mets suck?
I’m not sure what you said (offers to do a web search).

Can you just tell me why they suck?
I don’t understand (opens up web search).

Will the Mets trade David Wright?
I can’t predict the future of the stock market. I can only show today’s numbers. 

What is the meaning of life?
42.

So there you have it, folks. I went on to ask if the Wilpons should sell the team but the question wasn’t coming through clearly for Siri. But if the meaning of life is really 42, then at least the Mets have a good understanding of it.
