Steal This Meme: Werner Herzog Inspires

Werner Herzog bolt cutters 2

Werner, my love, I’m still not over you. I think it’s the voice. I realized yesterday that if Siri spoke to me in the voice of Werner Herzog, I would use the Siri app on my iPhone.

Please understand, pilgrims and seekers, when I first got my iPhone, somehow Siri got turned on, and when she spoke in response to something I said to Mrs. Dr. Omed I was so creeped out I was ready to call an exorcist, except I would have had to ask Siri to find one. I found instead the button in “Settings” that turned Siri off. But if Siri lisped in the flat, deadpan Bavarian voice of Werner, I and my iPhone would talk all the time.

Bonus viddy: Werner Herzog as “the Zec” in the Tom Cruise vehicle Jack Reacher:

“Always the bullet. I don’t understand.”

Since the Werner Herzog Inspirationals Tumblr is not posting new memes, I’m creating my own, and as Clay Shirky, author of Here Comes Everybody, puts it, “The stupidest possible creative act is still a creative act.” Words to live by in the latter days of the Internet Age. Steal this meme.
