Did you know that "What Is 0 Divided By 0?" was Google's most searched question for the year 2015? Why are so many people searching Google for this particular question you ask? Apparently, if you ask Siri (a built-in virtual assistant for iPhones) "What is 0 divided by 0?" she gives a humorous response. "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.” Can you think of a better answer to the question than Siri? I wonder who programs all of Siri's responses, they're hilarious! You can see the video in the link below.
"Imagine that you have zero cookies," Siri begins, before she tells you that the question doesn't make sense -- and that you have no friends.

I would love to have a job where I sat around in a room full of smart and funny people thinking up answers to Siri questions.

Indeed, that would be a fun job! I would be fired though, I suck at humor.

@Angelee_27 I am humor-challenged, kind of like Nemo's dad, Marlin, but I'm good at playing the straight man.

I divided a positive number by zero once, and got the answer to the beginning of the universe, what gravity is all about, how forcefield technology is possible, how warp technology is possible, the contours of the universe, and a lot of other things. It was pretty amazing. And this is a true story too!
