Machines may yet become sentient, but they've a bit further to go if this example of Siri's ineptitude is anything to go by.

While the iPhone's inbuilt personal assistant may prove handy on many an occasion, it's also capable of the odd blunder, as Reddit user wandreylust recently found out.

When they asked Siri what the national anthem of Bulgaria is, it answered that Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's smash hit 'Despacito' was the tune that inspired Bulgarians to stand up and turn towards their flag.

(Eh, in reality, it's 'Mila Rodino', which translates to 'Dear Motherland' - not some cheesy Spanish-language pop tune with dodgy lyrics.)

Never change, Siri.
