If you're an iPhone or iPad user, you already know Siri can do many things. Recently, one of her other skill sets - which some thought was hidden until now - surprised tech buffs as it was considered incongruous for a virtual personal assistant.

If you ask, "Siri, can you beatbox for me?" she'll do just that, albeit in an odd way.

She'll begin by saying there's a line she's been practicing, and then goes on to say "boots and cats" over and over.

Why "boots and cats"? This phrase is one of the basics usually used in learning beatboxing.

Well, she did say she was still in practice phase. Nevertheless, The Verge pointed out that her beatboxing is "not very good."

Siri's beatboxing chops isn't exactly a new feature.

"Daichi, one of the internet's best-known beatboxers for this demonstrative video, uploaded a clip in December last year showing Siri beatboxing in Japanese," the tech news portal noted. "Like the English-speaking version, Japan's Siri says it's been practicing the beat, but in this case it shows - it's faster, slicker, and closer to an actual beat than the 'boots and cats' refrain."

A French iPhone user had also shown that inputing a couple of consonants for Siri to intone can actually produce "surprisingly effective results."

Further, creative rookie DJs may produce an interesting musical sequence by using multiple iPhones and "using Siri requests to put laughter, sad trombones, fart noises, and other sounds from Apple's library over the top of the assistant's repetitive beat."

"But if you want to use it to search for actual songs, you'll need to be subscribed to Apple Music - Siri denies any requests for music chart information unless you're a member of the streaming service," The Verge explained.

Beatboxing is not the only quirky request that Siri can serve up, though, albeit in a rather incomprehensible manner.

When asked for the answer to zero divided by zero, as noted by ABC News, Siri would reply with this statement: "Imagine that you have zero cookies and you split them evenly among zero friends. How many cookies does each person get? See? It doesn't make sense. And Cookie Monster is sad that there are no cookies, and you are sad that you have no friends."

You can also ask her about the end of the world, whether the chicken or the egg came first, the laws of robotics, what she's wearing, and the meaning of her name, MailOnline noted.

How about asking her for winning Powerball numbers? Have you tried doing just that?
