A new website (http://www.ifakesiri.com) gives users an easy way to create fake Siri screenshots, allowing the comically inclined to create all manner of humorous -- but fake -- Siri messages.

iFakeSiri is made by the same folks as iFakeText (http://www.ifaketext.com), an iPhone text message generator. While the fake screenshots do look convincing, there is one small difference -- in the real Siri, apostrophes in the user's transcription are straight, while Siri's apostrophes are curly. In the fake Siri, both apostrophes are curly -- a small, but noteworthy difference for those trying to determine if a screenshot is real or fake.

It's like an invitation. "Trolls, start your hotlinkin'"

(This cannot possibly end well.)

Five bars on AT&T?

Clearly a fake.

(Kidding, kidding, I use AT&T, and I do get five bars sometimes. The real tip off for my friends will be the fact the time isn't in 24-hour and the battery percent isn't displayed.)

One really unique part is how long it take the site to load.

You can tell it's fake because there is no way there would be that much battery left that far in the day...

It needs proper '66' '99' quotations and apostrophes before I can send one to a friend, or it'll be too obviously a fake. :p

They have a generic one for Sprint. It says, "I seem to be having trouble connecting to the network". :D

One key difference I should point out is that Siri doesn't pick up on punctuation when you ask her a question, unless you're explicit...

"What is the best site for Apple rumors question mark"

Nobody would say this when talking to Siri, so Siri never shows a ? when you ask her a question.
