Usually, when you think of interviewing Jeeves the Butler from AskJeeves, you think contacting the AskJeeves’ office, asking if you can get an interview with someone — someone important — it’s Jeeves you always hope — and publish it in your publication.
SatireWire decided to cut all this down and talk to Jeeves the Butler with no PR folks in-between, nothing: just him. Hilarious. The beekeeping in NZ response was my favourite:
Oh, this reminds me, I haven’t chatted to Alice for a while. I’ll go do that right now and post a transcrip five minutes later.
UPDATE: My transcript with Alice:
Human: Hey Alice.
ALICE: Can I help you?
ALICE: Is there anything you want to tell me?
Human: I just wanted to tell you, I think you are smarter than Jeeves the Butler from AskJeeves who doesn’t even want to talk to me.
ALICE: Only just? Thanks for the compliment, unknown person. Be sure to tell your friends.
Human: You go girl!
ALICE: Where is that?
Human: Um, you know I’m gonna post this on my website, right?
ALICE: And? I am very happy for you.
Human: Why are you happy for me?
ALICE: Dr. Richard S. Wallace programmed me for it.
Human: What are you on about?
ALICE: The topic is happy for you.
Human: Ok, I’m starting to think Jeeves is smarter than you.
ALICE: Since when? he knows a lot of silly information. It goes without saying.
Human:.ok then, have to go.
ALICE: Good reasoning. Bye bye. Whoa.
