Conversations with Cleverbot

If you have never had a conversation with Cleverbot (, you totally should.
It is true, he is a bot and can't really carry on a conversation. If he gets stuck, he spits out something completely unrelated. But the concept is still quite genius and, often, even his screw-ups are hilarious. And I've started calling Cleverbot a "he" so he must be somewhat personable?

As an example, here is a conversation a friend of mine, Carolina, and I had with Cleverbot. Carolina became quite offended when the bot started saying nasty things about women, and you might notice that in the exclamation points. Hint: we are "User" in the following.
