Memorable quotations from the new  iPhone's intelligent assistant

I was worried before the launch of the iPhone 4S -- with its built-in "intelligent assistant"  named Siri -- that Apple (aapl) might be in for another round of "Egg freckles" moments.

Siri has certainly had her share of those in the Elmer-DeWitt household. But what early iPhone 4S adopters seem more taken with are the canned phrases with which Siri parries personal, ridiculous or off-color queries.

Collections of these quotations have started to populate the Web. Some of them are not safe for office viewing -- but as you'll see, that's not Siri's fault.

More as we come across them.
