“Alexa, do the dishes”

The Amazon Alexa virtual assistant does many things, but it doesn’t wash dishes. “Alexa, do the dishes” (or “Alexa. wash the dishes”) is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images.
     
”#Alexa, do the dishes for me. #amazonecho #nope” was posted on Twitter by ZiG on January 14, 2015. “Alexa… do the dishes. #AmazonEcho” was posted on Twitter by DubyaWife on February 11, 2015. “Alexa: can you wash the dishes please?” was posted on Twitter by Winterr (it/that) on September 2, 2015. “Alexa, wash the dishes for me, please” was posted on Twitter by Jedidiah Gant on March 31, 2016.
   
“Alexa, Do the Dishes Kitchen Tea Towel https://lovelynovelty.com/alexa-do-the-dishes-kitchen-tea-towel/” was posted on Twitter by beatsatmonster on August 15, 2019.
