If you take into account that Google is currently working on AI to aid advertising, an exchange along the lines of a previous post comes to mind:

COMPUTER: "Good morning, Jeff."
HUMAN: "..."
COMPUTER: "Yes, Jeff. Certainly. Porn. Again."
COMPUTER: "Are you sure you don't want to read some news first, maybe get a weather update or see what's out on the cinema circuit?"
HUMAN: "..."
COMPUTER: "Okay, okay."
COMPUTER: "It's just, you know. Porn. There's not much there. Is this really how you want to spend your life?"
HUMAN: "... ..."
COMPUTER: "Fine. Anything in specific that you'd like to see?"
HUMAN: "..."
COMPUTER: "Oh, god. Not Sydney Moon again. I am so sick of watching that video. And could you turn off the webcam this time?"
