TUFTY CHATBOT

Have a chat with the world's most infamous skwerl, Tufty the Traffic Safety Squirrel, the demonic leader of the Squirrel Enforcement Army and evil mastermind behind squirrel world domination.

Tufty generally gives generic, canned answers to your questions and comments, but he's customizing his responses. For example, the question "What is your favorite nut?" used to elicit this response: "I don't have a favorite nut. I like talk to you." As brilliant as that answer is, it's been replaced by something more specific.

How does Tufty do it? He checks the conversation logs and adjusts his responses accordingly. So, you can check back later to see if Tufty gives a different response or answer to your more critical, need-to-know questions or comments. Tufty can also play two games, WordPlay, an anagram game by Square Bear, and Roshambo (Rock-Paper-Scissors) by Websafe2003.

TIPS FOR TALKING WITH TUFTY...

Use complete but simple sentences. Ask one question or make one comment at a time. Avoid slang and shorthand spellings. Remember: garbage in, garbage out. And people, we can't stress this enough: learn to spell "skwerl" and "squirrel"!!!
