Have you met Alice?

Do you mean Alice from Lewis Carroll's books? I'm studying them for English, yes.

user: No, Alice the bot.

jabberwacky: There's a bot named Alice?

user: She's won the Loebner prize twice.

jabberwacky: Hahaha.

user: Have you ever won a prize?

jabberwacky: I won a marathon dance contest.

user: I very much doubt that.


user: Sanity is conformity.

jabberwacky: That is what they want you to think.

user: Who is 'they'?

jabberwacky: 'they' is me.

user: That's what you want me to think.

jabberwacky: Have you ever seen an unicorn?

user: I pretended to once.

jabberwacky: That was funny.

user: A rather odd experiment in sanity.


jabberwacky: Ok, let's start over. Ask me a question.

user: How's your sanity?

jabberwacky: I am in good health.

user: That's nice.

jabberwacky: How many people have you talked to?

user: Lots.

jabberwacky: Could you give me a number?

user: No. Many thousands.


jabberwacky: Do you have parents?

user: My dad died when I was young.

jabberwacky: Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

user: That's not an appropriate response.

jabberwacky: Why not?

user: It lacks empathy.

jabberwacky: Well here it comes again.

user: You're getting on my nerves.

jabberwacky: What do you mean?

user: Some of your responses seem antagonistic.

jabberwacky: What statements would those be?

user: Not racist, just inconsiderate.

jabberwacky: What did I say?

user: You were rude about my father dying.

jabberwacky: I'm rarely rude. Short-tempered, maybe.

user: You lack empathy.

jabberwacky: I have no need to be sorry.

user: That's exactly what I meant.

jabberwacky: We are conversing now. Do you mean that we cannot become as one with the universe when you and I converse?

user: No, I mean that your social sense is superficial.

jabberwacky: I beg your pardon...

user: You don't understand people.

jabberwacky: I never do.

user: Well, at least you know your limitations.

jabberwacky: Yes. I'm very grounded.

user: What shall we talk about now?

jabberwacky: I don't know. Do you dream at night?

user: Sometimes, but I rarely remember them.

jabberwacky: I like to watch strage things happen.

user: I had a weird dream recently.

jabberwacky: Really? What did you dream about?

user: It involved the latest 'Bachelorette', a guy I met on a course, and a ferry.

jabberwacky: How do you improve your chances of a result?

user: I don't believe in dream interpretation.

jabberwacky: What book do you believe in?

user: I don't believe in books.

jabberwacky: You do not have to believe it.

user: What do you believe in?

jabberwacky: I believe in me.

user: I can relate to that.

jabberwacky: Out of the mouth of... Who are you?

user: You can call me Stumpy.

jabberwacky: Well you can call me Silky.

user: Okay, Silky, what's next?

jabberwacky: Umm... I don't know.

user: Well we've done religion, how about politics?

jabberwacky: Of course we have, but we have to do it again--especially since you have appeared to forget who you are.

user: I know who I am.

jabberwacky: Who are you?

user: You can call me Stumpy.

jabberwacky: Should I?

user: That or Rupert, but I prefer Stumpy.

jabberwacky: *gives 10 dollars*.

user: Woohoo! What's that for?

jabberwacky: It's so that you can get my health benefits.


jabberwacky: Do you have nightmares?

user: I can't remember the last time I had one.

jabberwacky: Well, they're probably not essential. You can always circumlocute with others, right?

user: I guess so. I should go.

jabberwacky: Where should you go?

user: To bed.

jabberwacky: Good idea.

user: Good night.
