Some funny things we found this month....Funny Things to Ask Siri
With the new Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus now available to purchase, many users have noticed some interesting responses with Siri in iOS 8. First introduced back in 2011 with the iPhone 4S, Siri is Apple's virtual assistant, answering all of your burning questions. For instance, you can ask her what the weather is like, and she'll respond by telling you the weather for your area. But you won't always receive these straight-forward answers, especially if you ask some unorthodox questions.
The folks over at MacWorld recently published a list for 45 funny things to ask Siri in iOS 8. Some gems mentioned in the article includes asking “When is the world going to end,” to which Siri responds “As long as you keep me charged, we should be just fine.” Telling Siri “I'm Naked” will trigger the comical response, “I don't understand what you mean by 'naked.” Or at least I'm going to pretend that I don't.” You can also tell Siri “Testing,” to which she responds with “Hey, Nobody told me there would be a test!” These are just a few of the the funny responses you'll get when using Apple's virtual assistant. Of course, Google Now – Google's virtual assistant – has also been programmed with some pretty hilarious responses, but we'll save those for another time.
Rainfall in the City of Angels
In case you didn't get the memo, the city of Los Angeles, California experienced a rather peculiar weather pattern this month: rain. It's pretty rare for L.A. to receive rain, so residents often freak out when the first drops begin to fall. The website Buzzfeed recently published a YouTube video depicting L.A. residents' reaction to rain -- and it's pretty darn hilarious to say the least. The video opens in what appears to be a traditional office setting, but workers begin to act strange as some unknown yet frightening news strikes. We soon learn that L.A. is being attacked.... by rain. Workers begin to scatter, some of whom are raiding the snack pantry while others are searching Google for "how to survive rain." After 11 seconds, the rain stops and everyone goes back to work like nothing happened. To top it off, there's an earthquake at the end of the video, which causes everyone to laugh like it's no big deal, because after all earthquakes are far more common in L.A. than rain.

“This is so accurate, it's not even funny. California is basically a desert,” commented YouTube user keepcalm2. Another user responded by saying “what is this rain? I'm not familiar with that term.” On a side note, why is the woman in the video searching for "ORGANIC DOG FOOD" in all caps? I don't think Google differentiates between lower case and upper case...
George Lopez as the Mexican Donald Trump
The fact that billionaire real estate mogul Donal Trump could become the 44th president of the United States is funny in itself (and kind of scary). But the folks over at FunnyorDie.com have taken the presidential race to a new level with a new video presenting George Lopez as the Mexican Donald Trump. Being that he's the "Mexican" version of trump, however, Donaldo Trumpez -- yes, that's his name, lol -- didn't make his money buying and selling real estate. Instead, the Mexican Donald Trump made his money selling soccer fields and brothels.
What makes this video even funnier is the simple fact that Donaldo Trumpez really channels his inner Donald Trump. When the interviewer asks him why he wants to become the next president, Trumpez responds by saying that he's a winner at everything, and that he wants to make Mexico great again. If those phrases sound familiar, it's probably because we've heard them before by the real Donald Trump.

Want to get back at your ex? Well, you could always post flyers around town asking people to call his or her phone and leave their best Chewbacca impersonation on the voicemail. The next time your ex checks their voicemail, they'll be bombarded with dozens of Chewbacca impersonations. Ah, the sweet sounds of revenge...
A Reddit user posted this photo earlier this month, revealing what appears to be a Chewbacca impersonation contest. The flyer asks users to call a number (note: the number has been blacked out, which is probably a smart idea), along an annotation at the bottom saying the winner will be judged and contacted by October 13 for a whopping $50 reward. While there's no official word yet that this flyer is in fact fake, we can only assume that there's no Chewbacca impersonation contest taking place, especially on someone's cellphone.
Which bit do you think was the funniest?
