Last-minute Halloween shoppers ask ‘Siri’ for help

DENVER-- Halloween is just around the corner and many of us are still scrambling to find a costume.

You might try searching online or asking a friend, but did you ever think to just ask "Siri?"

The built-in intelligence assistant in iPhones, known as Siri, has many people in Denver laughing. Her suggestions for Halloween might not be helpful, but they are entertaining.

When you ask, "Siri, what should I be for Halloween?" She responds with sassy answers like, "You can go as an eclipse, just dress in black and stand in front of things."

A couple other interesting answers, "If you go as a general relativity theorist, you can distort the perception of time and space so that you don’t have to show up!"

We met a local art teacher who was thrilled with the response Siri gave her.

"The Fibonacci sequence, I'll go as your plus one and plus two and plus three and plus five."

Siri even suggested an idea hitting a little too close to home for this local doctor.

"You can put on surgeon scrubs, hold instruments and tell people you're an operating system."

Dr. Lund called Siri a very expensive Magic 8 Ball.

At least she gave almost everyone a good laugh.

"I was thinking about the spiral galaxy, but I can never find one in my size!"
