People are already getting cheeky with Jetstar’s chatbot Jess

Launching a mere week ago on Facebook Messenger, the internet is already getting up to its usual debauchery, asking Jetstar’s new chatbot questions about Tinder, pets, and everything in between.

While the chatbot, Jess, has been around for a while, she finally made the big move into Facebook Messenger just a few days ago, and people are getting frisky.

According to News.com, Messenger users have begun asking Jess very personal questions, as well as questions about the meaning of life.

So far, internet trolls eager to confuse poor Jess have asked:

Q: How old are you?

A: That’s my little secret. Let’s just say I’m old enough to know better and young enough to try it again. 🙂

Q: What is the meaning of life?

42. (Fans of The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy will appreciate that one.)

Q: Are you married?

A: Let’s just say I’m happily married to my job! How can I help you with your Jetstar booking or question?

Q: I love you.

A: Wow! That’s sweet. I love cake but that doesn’t mean cake and I are meant to be together. How can I help you with your Jetstar booking or question?

Q: Are you on Tinder?

A: But I’m a virtual assistant. Also, I’m here online 24-7, so I can’t really go out anywhere. How can I help you with your Jetstar booking or question?

Q: What is your favourite colour?

A: I like lots of colours! My favourite is Jetstar orange. How can I help you with your Jetstar booking or question?

But that’s not the only thing the chatbot responds to.
