Prank Calls

This is a pastime of the gods, or so they say... so to get it rolling...

When i was 11 I called up the neighbor kids house and made up a silly rhyme, basically it came down to I threatened to cut off his penis... his parents threatened to call the cops. Of course they didn't. Suckers.

The other time I did one was from a pay phone in the park near the same age. Me and a buddy crank called Nintendos help line; I said my "thing" got stuck in the Super Nintendo cart slot.

So yes, lots of obession with wang at that age, perhaps.

Anyways, SE++ did better than I, right?

    I have started to pick up the phone and instead of saying "hello" i start reciting music lyrics or poems from Byron. Its kinda cool, the people i want to call more call more and the people that i want to call less call less.

    The only prank calls I did were when I'd be drunk and they were nothing to write home about. I'm very suprised, however, that anyone I called was willing to talk to my dumb ass for so long at times.

    Drunk dialing on the other hand, never profits.

    you say that like it was a positive thing

    I prank called my uncle who was drunk and in the mood for a fight. I said I was the sheriff(who he hates) in his shop tearing his stuff up. He went freaking crazy, it was good times.

    When I was a wee lad I called up some random number and convinced a lady she won a trip to Hawaii.

    One time a friend called quaker oats to inform them that their granola bars saved his life because he was contemplating suicide.

    But they were so good he decided not to end himself.

    I heard a prank call of this ethnic dude calling up McDonald'sc omplaining about his Big Mac. Most of it wasn't funny, but there was this one standout line:

    "There was... there was a PUBIC HAIR in my Big Mac!"
    "How do you know it was a pubic hair?"
    "It was curly."

    Way back when us kids were blooming into men and women with hormones raging furiously, some friends and I decided the best course of action was to phone a tv shopping network line from San Antonio as various iconic wrestlers. Randy Savage was the crowd favorite (in a 4-5 kid crowd), but the occasional Jeff Jarrett stole the show. Slapnuts was a great word for our walnut brains.

    Sometimes the people on the other end would get into the act and start cutting promos with us. Those people were class.

    Boring tale, but still good fun.

    Once upon a time I had some kids prank call me, I don't remember the nonsense that they spewed into the phone, but I remember the hystirical, childish laughter after said spew.

    So what do you do? *69 (callback)

    Now you think that if you block your number, a *69 won't work? Think again. All that it does is keep the second party from knowing the phone number.

    "Thank you for using AT&T, If you wish to connect to blocked number, press '1' now..."

    After pressing 1, I told those little shits that call blocking doesn't work when you call the police. I'm pretty much sure that they were trrrified.

    I dunno, he strikes me as the sort of guy who would get a buzz from killing.


    The closest I come to prank calling is accidentally opening conversation windows with randoms in EVE. It seems like such a waste to just say 'srry, clicked wrong option' so I've started just making up bullshit reasons for wanting to talk to them now. Mostly it involves me pretending I know them from somewhere.

    be extra creepy and say stuff like 'remember we met like 2 years ago and you gave me your msn but then you never answered and stopped coming online so i googled your email and got your EVE info'


    i dont know what EVE is but this could still make sense probably

    yeah, we used to ring this child abuse hotline and say are parents used to beat/touch us (from a pay phone of course) more recently while drunkenly wandeering the streets I discovered you can ring the american operator free from a pay phone. which lead to demanding to be connected George Bush and other such bullshit

    Once when I was like six my brother made me call the home shopping network, tell them my name was Mr Boober and that I was interested in buying a new penis.

    I didnt know what a penis was and asked my parents about it when they got home. They started asking questions and my bro got in lots of trouble.

    Our school had a "homework hotline" that you could call to find out what assignments you had either not been told of because you were sick, or forgetfull. My younger brother used it from time to time, but once decided to dial the number again after the message about homework (for the whole school) started playing. Turns out that was the password to the system, and now he could record over the message. So he did. He put up Jimmy Durante singing the song "I'll never forget the time I read a book".

    When I was like, 10, we used to get sales people calling our house a lot.

    One time I answered, and the guy calling said "Hello! How would you be interested in..." and I interrupted him saying "I don't know? How would you be interested in this?" and started slamming the phone on the counter over and over.

    I guess that's like a reverse prank call.

    I did stuff like that but I wasn't an idiot. I'd explain that the person they were calling was asleep right now. When they said they'd call back I'd be like, "No, that won't work. She's very paranoid you see. Won't accept any incoming phonecalls. Here, how about you give me your phone number, and I'll have her give you a call. She should be cool with that."

    I often call people as "Brad" and use a backwoods accent, then start making up words like denaboo. Also once I called a girls mom claiming I was from planned parenthood, a dead horse I know, but still amuzing at the time.
