"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

Anyone who has tried to talk with Alley Cat knows bots don't always make sense, but even Facebook can't get much sense out of their AIs.

In an effort to understand how linguistics play a role in the way discussions play out for negotiating parties, and crucially they programmed their AI bots to experiment with language in order to see how that affected their dominance in the discussion. This was a result:-

Bob: "I can can I I everything else"
Alice: "Balls have zero to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to"
