Lots of people are having fun teasing Siri today, asking Apple’s digital assistant to divide zero by zero. Siri can blame “Breaking Bad” actor Aaron Paul for finding the latest hidden Easter egg.

He discovered late Monday that Siri has an interesting answer for that question and urged all of his Twitter followers to join in the fun. And boy, are they.

For all you Android users – Siri is available only on iPhones – here’s what you’d hear in response:

“Imagine that you have zero cookies and you split them evenly among zero friends. How many cookies does each person get? See, it doesn't make sense. And Cookie Monster is sad that there are no cookies, and you are sad that you have no friends.”

Ouch, Siri.

This isn’t the only Easter Egg tucked in Siri’s software.

Ask: “What's the meaning of life?”

She’ll say: “All evidence to date suggests it’s chocolate.”

Ask, on your iPhone: “What's the best phone?”

She’ll say: “I think you’ve already answered that question.”

Ask: “Do you love me?”

She’ll say, rightfully so: “You’re looking for love in all the wrong places.”
