Monday Memos: Siri vs Cookie Monster…a battle of the icons

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we are going to discuss something that the whole internet was obsessed with this pat week. If you have an iPhone then you’re probably VERY familiar with the GPS function ‘Siri’. unless you have an iPhone and/or experience with Siri, then you may not realize that Siri is one very sassy GPS system. She’s been known to make jokes at the expense of her owner, and because of this, we have gotten some VERY funny clips for YouTube over the years. So please read on to find out what Siri did this past week that kept the internet buzzing.

 

It all started last Tuesday (June 30th), when Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul tweeted that we should all ask SIri what zero divided by zero is (if you haven’t done this then go ahead and try…it’s ok I’ll wait…ok let’s move on!). Of course we all tried this, and here is what Siri said: “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.” So there you have it, be careful what you ask Siri because she is NOT afraid to completely destroy your self esteem. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, Cookie Monster has tweeted his resonse:

Monday Memos: Golden Globes 2014 Recap

Hello people of the internet, on today’s ‘Monday Memos’, we are going to discuss what happened on the ‘Golden Globes’ this past Sunday (January 12, 2014). This show kicks off award season, and honors excellence in TV, mini-series, and TV movies. So are y’all ready!?! Well then let’s begin!

 

Opening Monologue: The hilarious comedy duo of Amy Poehler and Tina Fey once again hosted the show this year, and the two definitely made the show fun to watch.  The two started their monologue by making fun of their own hosting skills with their comment that “in Hollywood, if something kind of works, then they keep doing it until you get sick of it”. They then began making fun of a lot of the celebrities that were in attendance such as: Bradley Cooper, Meryl Streep, Matt Damon (who they also made fun of later, when actress Melissa McCarthy presented an award, but supposedly got amnesia backstage, and now believed that she was Matt Damon), and numerous others. Amy and Tina also had a running joke with veteran actress  Julia Louise-Dreyfus (who at first pretended to be “too good” to sit in the TV section of the auditorium due to Julia’s first Golden Globe film  nomination, and then she later sat in the TV section, and Tina and Amy made fun of her). Finally, Tina and Amy made fun of George Clooney by saying that he “would rather float away in space, then spend time with a woman his age” (in reference to the hit film ‘Gravity’ that George did with Sandra Bullock).

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler made an unstoppable comedic duo, and I can certainly see them continuing this for many years to come. The show truly displayed those who’s talent, dedication, and hard work soared this year, and it left me excited for next year. I believe that this was an excellent and fun start to the award season!
