The lights are on
For those of you that aren't familiar with ChaCha, it's a service that attempts to answer any question you may have. You can simply text your question to 242242 (CHACHA) or type it into their website, and they pride themselves on getting back to you quickly. Some frequent questions are answered automatically, while others are sent to ChaCha's "trained guides" to research and answer. Today, I decided to test ChaCha's knowledge of video games. Take a look at some of their real, unedited answers below.

I remember I texted cha cha to help me mix items in monster hunter tri......it helped a little
lol these are hilarious! Yeah, that service always sucked when I tried to use it.
Q.What do you know about longboarding?
A.Don't know much about longboarding.But I sure know a lot about Video Games. What would you like to know about video games? Cha Cha on!
ChaCha = FAIL
Should have used Wolfram Alpha
Too funny. Not even a like it was a suggestion, but stated fact.
LOL, totally agree with the Pokemon one :D
Just kidding. It's my least favorite of the first gen starters, but far from the stupidest pokemon.
hahah nice. I tried working for them once, it was unbelievably dumb.
This is why I always let Lagiacrus kill him. Oh wait, wrong ChaCha.
I always new Big Daddies were just LDL.
And that Kratos is Robert, and he is perhaps angry because of said reasons.
And then it seriously tried to make a joke about marriage.
I'm beginning to think they are trolling on purpose. How radically unrelated their responses are, using entirely different words in place of the keywords you used. This is professional trollism.
Somehow, I knew this was a "Dan" article before I even saw who wrote it.
But hey, at least ChaCha confirmed it. Joe looks like a dog! That oughta be worth a couple points for Dan in the "Dan/Joe" rivalry.
Oh, Mr. Ryckert, please make this a continual blog post or news story. At least once a month if not once a week. This made my entire day!
They sure like Prototype.
I wanna know more about longboarding!!
maybe it runs all the questions through google translate 7 times before actually reading them?
Please, continue this. I always love seeing other people completely screw up video game trivia.
1) This is awesome.
2) I knew this had to be hatched by one Dan Ryckert before I even saw the name. Keep up the good (?) "work" (?) Dan.
I used to be a chacha guide and I dont get how other guides can be so stupid!
Haha well then
