Why doesn't artificial intelligence have a girlfriend? Because there is no heart.
What is the favorite dish of artificial intelligence? Bit.
What does artificial intelligence say when it gets a task to do? "I'll do it in the blink of an eye" - and so he does for 3 days.

Why can't artificial intelligence shop in a store?

My first IT job was on a DECsystem-10 mainframe in 1977. When I walked into the computer room there was a short poem taped to the LA120 console that read:

I really hate this darn machine,
I wish that they would sell it.
It never does what I want,
Only what I tell it.

That has stuck with me for 26 years now! :)
