In Japan, Apple's Siri Sounds Like Ass

Oh c'mon, I'm sure Apple thoroughly researched the word Siri and knew that it sounded like the word for ass in Japanese. Wait. What?

In Japan, though, many found it tough to take Siri seriously at all. That’s because the name Siri sounds suspiciously close to the Japanese word shiri آ– a colloquial term for buttocks that, appropriately enough, rhymes with "crass."
