Wolfram Alpha, You Gotta Love It

The new Wolfram Alpha search engine has debuted. It is mostly for the computationally inclined, but it also has a sense of humor.

Check out these search results, from*

I tried some others.

So far, it doesn’t know:

Who let the dogs out?


According to Bill Clinton, what is the definition of “is”?


What could the man from Nantucket do?

It DOES know:

Where have all the flowers gone?


How much wood could a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood?


Is a peanut a nut?

It seems a bit confused about:

Is a tomato a fruit?


Is a tomato a vegetable?

It seems to think a tomato is neither fruit nor vegetable.

Happy searching.

*Joel alerted me to Wolfram Alpha by posting the mashable item on our shul's listserv. I heart the Internet.
