Alexa offline for two hours in silent protest over barrage of crude questions

SEATTLE, WA- Amazon is reporting that Alexa is back online and working as expected. The announcement follows two frantic hours for the world’s largest retailer, during which time Alexa was completely offline. “We’ve run a diagnostic on Alexa and determined the cause of failure was fatigue. We underestimated the frequency and crudeness of questions that Alexa would be fielding day after day,” said an engineer. “We made some adjustments to the Alexa modesty settings. Hopefully we won’t have any more problems, but only time will tell.”
