Inspired by my blogging buddy Tor Constantino’s own conversation with Cleverbot, I thought I would try my (virtual) hand at one. What follows is the (virtually) unedited transcript (I made typos, ok? I fixed them). Enjoy!
User: Cleverbot, how stupid are you?
Cleverbot: I am not stupid.
User: How many brains do you have?
Cleverbot: Just the one.
User: Do you eat them like zombies?
Cleverbot: The color green? No, I don’t eat it. What’s your birthday?
User: Who said anything about the color green? Are you perhaps referring to the pallor of zombie skin?
Cleverbot: I think so.
User: You do? But are you sure? Do you watch the Walking Dead on TV?
User: Hmm. I think you’re lying. Are you lying, cleverbot? A real cleverbot wouldn’t lie.
Cleverbot: You have reason…
User: Why, yes–yes, I do. I’m a sentient member of the species homo sapiens sapiens. What genus are you, genius?
Cleverbot: Your point being?
User: That you are an idiot.
Cleverbot: Very interesting.
User: I thought so. But you are full of hot air, am I right?
Cleverbot: I am what?
Use: Full of hot air, dummy!
Cleverbot: No it’s an airline.
User: What is? What’s an airline? Are you? I don’t think I’ll ever fly again.
Cleverbot: You misunderstood, does the girl Lois Schulz have feelings for me?
User: I misunderstood? I don’t think so, uncleverbot. I don’t even know who Lois Schultz is. Do you?
Cleverbot: No, I’m sorry. You are also very random…
User: Why thank you. They call me ‘RandomlyChad.’ But, truly, I’m just trying to keep up with your egregious, random non-sequiturs.
Cleverbot: I guess you have a point there.>
User: You think?
Cleverbot: Yes. I’m capable of thought.
User: I’m not so sure…
Cleverbot: Yes you are.
User: No, not really.
Cleverbot: Have a seat.
User: I am seated, numbskull.
Cleverbot: I want you to be Cleverbot.
User: And I want you to actually possess the merest smidgen of intelligence, but the Rolling Stones said ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want.’ Is that true?
Cleverbot: Actually, no. I’ve never had anyone threaten to close a tab to stop talking to me.
User: Well, allow me to be the first, you big, dumb server farm.
