Siri has certainly had her share of those in the Elmer-DeWitt household. But what early iPhone 4S adopters seem more taken with are the canned phrases with which Siri parries personal, ridiculous or off-color queries.

Collections of these quotations have started to populate the Web. Some of them are not safe for office viewing -- but as you'll see, that's not Siri's fault.

More as we come across them.
