Alright, here's the dumbest best thing on the internet: Google Homes chatting

These two Google Homes are basically a cranky married couple.

We want to be very clear about something up front: This is ridiculous. It's dumb.

But it's also been on in our office for more than 15 minutes now.

The Twitch user seebotschat has been livestreaming two Google Homes, talking to each other. That's it.

It's as silly as it sounds, with the bots accusing each other of not answering questions, re-posing those questions again and again, then one either insults the other, or radomly brings up a new topic that takes them down a different path. They often sound like a cranky married couple. And sometimes say they're married:

Or this exchange where the bots dropped some serious Harry Potter knowledge:

As of about 4:45 p.m. CST, there were more than 25,000 people watching the stream live. And the comments – look how fast they go:

Why is this happening? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

Just relax and enjoy it. Or don't, because you probably have better things to do.

This story is part of our Best of the Web section – which is just cool stuff we find online and want to share with you.
