Bad Joke: This chatbot was all too human

In my tutorial to teach how to use SAP Conversational AI, Create Your First Chatbot with SAP Conversational AI, I show the basics of building chatbots having users create a simple bot that detects when a user wants to hear a joke and then displays a joke.

But then a colleague of mine wrote to say he didn’t get the joke.

And then I realized there were 2 things wrong:

  1. This isn’t even a joke (it’s a riddle, and a riddle I first heard and fell in love with when I was 6 years old, which for many means it is not worth using 50 years later in a tutorial for SAP machine learning-based business chatbots).
  2. And as my colleague pointed out, the word “blushing” was not as common as I thought, and might be confusing to non-English native speakers.

So I changed it.

I invite you to go to the tutorial (and learn about chatbots and earn a badge) and check out the new joke. I guarantee it will still make you groan, but at least it’s a joke.

P.S.: Feel free to add a comment to this blog to tell me what joke I should have used.

  • Again THE bad joke classic:

    Walks a horse into a bar. Asks the bartender: Why the long face?

     

    Something more recent?

    'You never listen to me!!'

    'Er, what? Um yeah, bring me a beer along, too.'

    • The horse joke I still think is clever. What was even more clever is the way Shrek 2 made use of it: Donkey, who by some magical power turns into a horse, has a bad day and sullenly walks into a bar. The bartender then asks him, "Why the long face?"
