Didn't get the joke?

The Turing Test is a test designed to test a machine's ability to think. A human submits questions to the machine, and it answers (usually in written form). If the person cannot distinguish between it, and a person answering, the machine is said to be intelligent. Turing himself never claimed this would test whether the machine was 'conscious', but some people believe that anyway.
