Site Saturday: Cleverbot - the most aggravating yet!

The site look like a bite off of Google. Type in whatever you want, and Cleverbot will commence a conversation with you. Interestingly, Cleverbot is just that an AI. He's been programmed to respond to you properly just like us humans would chit-chat. However, the conversations always goes awry:  off the wall questions, random comments about bands or sports teams (whom haven't been in discussion as of yet), and false accusations about what I did with BEN (okay that one was mine, but you get the picture). It is easy to forget you're conversing with a computer. Chatting with Cleverbot's like being forced to talk to an eight year old who refuses to take his Ritalin. 
Reminds me Watson; remeber the muti-gillion bit/dollar computer who wiped the human contestants faces with their own humiliation on Jeapordy? He's a genius, skating across the simple ease of its own godlike intelligence, then in final Jeopardy when the subject of Final Jeopardy is American Cities, Watson answers "Toronto." Three cheers to the digital frontier!

Here's my initial conversation with Cleverbot, you'll get the picture (User is me, obviously):

Cleverbot: That is true that another human told me that.

Cleverbot: No I didn't. That wasn't funny. Tell me a joke.

User: Cleverbot.

Cleverbot: What should I be saying here?

User: You say, 'Yes, that is a good joke!'.

Cleverbot: Its not a joke. Its about the NHL.
