When I say to Siri, the virtual assistant from Apple, "Ok, Google," or "Hey Cortana," Siri replies:
Very funny. I mean, not funny "ha-ha", but funny.
I don't know how I should interpret this sentence. From what I understand, Siri found my remark "funny", although it wasn't funny in the sense that it makes one laugh aloud. I'm thinking of a few interpretations that seem possible:
- It isn't funny in the sense of "causing someone to laugh", but it has good, more subtle and refined humour.
- It's funny. It doesn't make me laugh though. I'm saying this ironically.
- It's naturally funny and doesn't require any artificial laughter to be made.
I'm pretty sure Siri doesn't like me talking to her like this, so I feel the second should be the closest, but I'm at a loss for precise interpretation. Dictionaries at hand don't list any specific idiom for "ha-ha."
What does this sentence mean? Also, is this an idiom that has specific meaning (rather than rhetorical invention that should be understood from context)?
