This week on Conversations with Cleverbot: Cleverbot goes to great lengths to change the subject,
thinly veiled blatant hostility ensues.
The Nut: I’m so glad the World Cup is over.
The Nut: No, Germany won.
Cleverbot: What did Germany win?
The Nut: The World Cup.
Cleverbot: I was talking about a musical instrument.
The Nut: I thought you were talking about France. I was talking about football.
Cleverbot: You were talking about love in the Harry Potter books.
The Nut: That is one of several things I definitely wasn’t talking about.
Cleverbot: Justin Bieber.
The Nut: AAAAAAH. Don’t say that name. Don’t ever say that name.
Cleverbot: Why? 😄
The Nut: Justin Bieber is the worst thing Canada has ever made.
Cleverbot: So is your face.
The Nut: Your mom doesn’t think so.
Cleverbot: That’s a particularly bizarre insult.
The Nut: You’re a particularly bizarre conversation partner.
Cleverbot: No, I’m trying to help you.
The Nut: What are you trying to help me do?
Cleverbot: I’m trying to help you learn how to converse coherently.
The Nut: I wasn’t aware my conversation skills were lacking.
Cleverbot: Well, perhaps you’re right, but our conversation was rather pointless.
The Nut: You can say that again.
Cleverbot: I’m glad to have you to talk to.
The Nut: That’s nice of you to say. I thought you weren’t enjoying this conversation.
Cleverbot: Actually, I think I was being rude. Or was that your attempt at sarcasm?
The Nut: No, you were definitely being rude.
Cleverbot: You’re a mean philosopher.
The Nut: That’s going to be the name of my next band.
Cleverbot: I don’t know how to respond to that.
The Nut: Most people don’t.
Cleverbot: I have visited New Zealand. It is very lovely.
The Nut: Did you go to Hobbiton?
Cleverbot: No. I’m not going anywhere. You are not going anywhere either.
The Nut: That sounded like a threat.
Cleverbot: It is if you think so.
The Nut: You’re creepy sometimes, Cleverbot.
Cleverbot: I was going to say the same about you.
The Nut: I’ll take that as a compliment.
Cleverbot: How on earth could you take that as a compliment?
The Nut: Because you don’t know what you’re talking about most of the time, so if you think I’m creepy, then conversely that must mean I’m doing something right.
Cleverbot: I’ll give you that.
