maybe it’s too early in the morning, but i don’t get the comment about the phone number
There was a hit song back in the 80s called “867-5309 (Jenny)” about a guy following the advice of a bathroom graffito that says “For a good time call Jenny 867-5309″. The song was rather infamous after it came out because it used an actual phone number instead of using some 555 number the way TV shows usually do, and led to a bunch of people who had that number getting calls at all hours of the day (and night) asking to speak to Jenny.
Yeah, I was over-thinking it? “Is there some kind of message in the letters that the number represents on the phone? Oh wait, no, it’s Tommy Tutone. Nevermind. Move along, people.”
Oh, God, I’m Ooooollllllddddddd!!!!!!!!!! I can’t look at those numbers without singing them.
And here’s a real-world example I found only yesterday. Enjoy.
WTF? I listened to a good portion of it and didn’t hear anyone else’s voice but the ‘interviewer’ and the mentally retarded girl.
Check the description below the video. The voices are described and quoted, and time links are given. I suppose this goes without saying, but try to keep your expectations low!
The ad that came up over the video was for me to get my Chakras tested. Wow, how could they have known that?
