Explained: 0 divided by 0 meme
- In late June 2015, news started to spread about a Siri Easter Egg.
- When Siri, the digital personal assistant that is a part of Apple’s iOS, is asked what 0 divided by 0 is, Siri replies, “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.”
- People have noted Siri’s response online, often along with their reactions.
- A meme has emerged from this in which humorous posts about Siri’s answer to 0 divided by 0 are made. These posts may involve references to being ‘dragged’ by Siri. Another variety of this meme involves using Siri’s response as a stock phrase of sorts.
