— -- That Siri is so multi-talented.

Apple's voice-powered personal assistant has a hidden beatboxing talent. Tell Siri to beatbox and she'll reply: "Here's one I've been practicing" before busting a beat by saying the phrase "boots and cats" over and over again.

According to various beatboxing tutorials, the silly phrase is a popular one for beatbox beginners.

Most of the Internet seems to have just discovered Siri's hidden party trick, but various videos posted to YouTube show that Siri has been honing her beatboxing talents for a while.

Last year, Siri served up some snark when people asked her "What's zero divided by zero?"

While the answer is mathematically indeterminate, Siri didn't stop there from explaining why.

"Imagine that you have zero cookies and you split them evenly among zero friends," she says. "How many cookies does each person get? See? It doesn't make sense. And Cookie Monster is sad that there are no cookies, and you are sad that you have no friends."
