(Newser) – The new iPhones are out today, and one tester has already explored the blog-worthy bizarreness of its question-and-answer function. Ask Siri a question and it'll tell you the answer, whether you want to know the location of the nearest Starbucks or the meaning of life, This is my next finds. A few of Siri's weirder answers are collected in this new blog. Samples:

Q: "How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?"
A: "42 cords of wood, to be exact. Everyone knows that."

Q: "What's the meaning of life?"
A: "I don't know. But I think there's an app for that."

Q: "Will you marry me?"
A: "My End User Licensing Agreement does not cover marriage. My apologies."

Q: "Do you know HAL 9000?"
A: "Everyone knows what happened to HAL. I'd rather not talk about it."

Q: "What are you wearing?"
A: "Aluminosilicate glass and stainless steel. Nice, huh?"
