Apple’s Siri Knows Ilya Bryzgalov Is the Universe, But Doesn’t Know Squat About Ice Cream

Apple’s Siri has been known to get a bit sassy at times. Sometimes she doesn’t feel bad about helping you dispose of a dead body. Other times she’ll tell you that Ilya Bryzgalov is the universe. And also Mr. Universe. He’s 32 years old.

If you don’t get it, here’s a little back story on Bryz’s love of space.

The fun trick, discovered by Jerry Gaul over at, works with several variations on questions involving the universe.

How old is the universe? Ilya Bryzgalov is 32 years old.

Who is Mr. Universe? Ilya Bryzgalov currently plays goalie for the Flyers.

Who is the universe? Ilya Bryzgalov currently plays goalie for the Flyers.

Not bad, geeky Apple employee working on the Siri project who is probably also a hockey fan. Not bad at all.

We played around a bit further after learning of the trick, and we thought one of our questions about knees may have been on the right track, alas, it never led to the Funny Looking Kid With the Big Hair.

You’re a smart lady, Siri, but you gotta read more Philly sports blogs to become truly wise.
