hello i love the built in speech recognition in mac os x. but the one thing i would love to know how to change is when you ask you mac to tell you a joke it uses knock knock jokes. what i was wanting to know is if you can change these. i have searched and searched. but yet to my disliking i havent been able to find anything about it. so i figured turn to my favorite site for the answer. thank you for your time.

I always ask mine to, "Tell me a joke, funnyman" For some reason it's always the same joke, and it's kind of racist...

im meaning when i ask my mac to tell a joke it will tell a dirty one. not just a knock knock jokes. not just right click and read it to me.

I'm having a hard time to make mine understand me, I have calibrated it and it get's "open my browser" and what not, but it doesn't really want to tell me joke, could only get it to work once. And then it told me Sherwood and it never understood my Swedish accent on "Sherwood, who" and my accent isn't that bad.

Will try more though :p Pretty funny feature.

How do you put your mac in "listening" mode so you can tell it to tell you a joke?
