That's considered "humorous"? Dumb, grim, and sophomoric. Stopped watching after the comment about no head inside. Given how rampant violence is in the society -- including incidents of such gruesome brutality -- it's just not funny. It's not clever. It's the type of a thing a stunted middle-school boy would come up with -- and be mocked at by his peers for how half-baked it was. Most of them could have done a much, much better job of this.

By the way, I thought that Apple had finally given Siri natural-sounding voices. (That is, assuming it's true, as someone else posted, that this is Siri -- reading text.).

I don't use Siri, save for the English-accented concierge while using Car Play, but this voice is pathetic. "She" sounds stilted and creepy -- like an imitation of bad voice assistants. How come Apple still can't match the computerized voice from 2001: A Space Odyssey -- or, even the original Star Trek?
You obviously don't know anything about Carrot. The whole shtick is that it is a homicidal (and snarky) superintelligent AI. Kind of a more edgy version of GLaDOS. The voice is not Siri, but a Carrot-specific voice.
