Of cabbages and kings, sealing wax and wedding rings

Amazon's EchoAlexa, the bot personality in Amazon’s Echo, can do lots of things.   She gives you weather reports, plays your favorite music, tells jokes, and we found out recently she will do a coin toss as well.  Since discovering the coin toss capability, Alexa has, against all odds, consistently returned “heads.”  Even 8 year-old Matt thought this was odd.

Matt: “Alexa, flip a coin.”

Alexa: “Flipping.  The answer is heads.”

“Grandpa, I think Alexa is broken.”

“Why is that, Matt?”

“She only gives head.”

“Oh, I don’t think she’s broken.  I think she just wants a wedding ring.”

“Huh?”

“I’ll explain when you are older.”
