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.”
