I think that by now, most Echo owners know Alexa has a large library of jokes available to tell on request, and that most of them are pretty silly.
Today I’m sharing joke-related commands and Easter eggs. Say the wake word followed by any of the queries or phrases below.
Tell me a joke / Tell me a riddle.
Knock-knock / Tell me a knock-knock joke.
Tell me a [Hillary Clinton / Donald Trump / Bernie Sanders / Ted Cruz] joke.

…And Don’t Forget the Poems
Poetry fans, don’t forget to keep asking Alexa, “What’s the poem of the day?” each day this month, in honor of National Poetry Month. You can now request a Haiku also: “Read me a haiku.”
