For the love of Rahzel, Siri thinks she can beatbox now. If you ask Siri to beatbox on your iPhone, she'll happily comply, BuzzFeed reports. Unfortunately she's terrible at it. Siri's attempt at laying down a beat is just repeating "boots and cats" over and over. CNBC explains: "The phrase is a common vocalization for beatboxing beginners to create a simple beat." Despite barely qualifying as a beginner, Siri boasts, "I could do this all day." Stop, Siri, Doug E. Fresh said silence. Regardless, the Internet has been suitably impressed, posting Siri's beatboxing all over social media, BuzzFeed reports. Probably not impressed: this father/daughter duo. Siri, Google Biz Markie videos. (More Siri stories.)
