Return To The Scene of the Stupid Alexa Tricks

Who can hate Mondays when they bring fun and useful queries to try on Alexa? For all the Easter eggs that follow, say the wake word followed by the suggested phrase or question.



First up, a batch contributed by LME reader Philip Ratzsch:

“Are you spying on me?”
“Tell me a swear word.”
“Tell me a dirty joke.”
“Do you have a job?”
“How much do you cost?”
“Do you learn?”


LME reader Richard Juaraz contributed:

“How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?”


Over on the Amazon Echo Reddit community, member ExSlyder shared:

“Are you GlaDOS?”
Pronounced Glad – iss; this is from the video game Portal. If you’re a fan, also try, “Is the cake a lie?”



From trial and error, the Amazon site, and around the web:

“How do you survive a zombie attack?”

“How do you survive a zombie apocalypse?”

“When does the sun set today?”
With the time change, this has become a very useful piece of information to have for anyone who wants to ensure they allow time for chores like taking the waste bins in or out, walking the dog, etc. before it gets dark.

Want to see the sunrise? Ask Alexa, “When does the sun rise tomorrow?” then set an alarm for fifteen minutes earlier.



“How many days till Thanksgiving?”

“When is Thanksgiving?”


Election Season Specials

“Tell me a Hillary Clinton joke.”

“Tell me a Bernie Sanders joke.”

“Tell me a Donald Trump joke.”

“Tell me a Ben Carson joke.”
