Rush Limbaugh, a popular talk radio show personality, received some strange responses when attempting to use Siri on his iPhone.

Here's the key part of the transcript:

---
I'm maybe a quarter of a mile from home on the way in to work, I attempt dictation, and nothing happens. I hit the microphone button and I get the three beeps and no connection. It's not working. So I say, "Ah, damn it, the system's down. Something's wrong with the servers," but I keep trying. The third attempt... I was trying to respond to some stuff Kathryn had sent me. She needed an answer on some stuff. So I said whatever it was my answer was the third time, and what came back to me? This is what you're not gonna believe. What showed up on my iPhone was "Obama's minions are taking over and there's nothing you can do about it," and I hadn't said anything like that!

The audio on the radio did not un-mute. The audio on the radio never came back. The whole system was discombobulated. So I switched from satellite to AM just to see if there was something wrong with the satellite signal, and AM came in fine. So I tried it again. I deleted that. I did not save that. I thought, "Man, something's really not right." So I responded to Kathryn again. I don't even remember what it was saying. I was answering questions about some stuff we've got going on this weekend. I said it again, the same thing I'd said the first time.

What came back to me the second time was totally unrelated to anything I had said. It was talking about wind power and Obama and, "You don't have a chance." I am not making this up. And I said to myself, "You know, somebody's hacked Apple's servers. I'm gonna get in there." I said, "I can't wait to get to work and fire up some of these Apple blogs because I'll bet you this has been going on all morning and I'll betcha it's a big story that Apple's servers have been hacked." So I tried it again. The third thing which came back had nothing to do with politics.

It had nothing to do with Obama, but it was not anything close to what I had said. Then I started doing, "Testing one, two, three," and I would get back four sentences that did not have "testing" or "one, two, three" in them. So, as I say, I didn't save any of these. I wasn't thinking. I was so curious. I didn't send them. It didn't make any sense. If I would have sent these things to Kathryn, she would have thought I'm losing my mind even more than I already have. (interruption) Wait, I'm not through with the story! So I get here. This happens two more times. I get here, the first thing I do when I get into the studio on our network system is start dictating, and it's flawless. It's perfect.

He is a bit truth challenged here I think.

RL left out an important conversation that would have gotten him in hot water. He asked Siri:"Where can I get some Oxicodone?", and to which Siri answered after a few seconds of silence:"Rush, go to address...ring the bell three times, knock twice, and say...if there's no annswer, go around the back...". By then the audio was unintelligible because he travelled through a cell dead zone. Cranky and withdrawn, he got into the studio, fired up the microphone and insisted on teaching Siri a lesson on how not to disrespect the most respected conservative radio personality.

Bah! Funny.... Nah, I think since his radio did not cut off, the iPhone's mic was used instead. If it was placed somewhere in the car, it could just have been bad audio quality reception from the iPhone's mic (highly probable, as it works well when you're near). Funny that Siri would understand it as such though.

He should get off the pain killer drugs. Fall off the wagon I think again
