Spin-off prank/crank calls....

D'ja when you were a kid? Share. Not nice and not funny....well, maybe a bit. ;) Thankfully doesn't happen much now prob due to caller ID.

    My best friend and I were pretty bad when we were younger. I used to have this Eeyore stuffed animal that would say different phrases in a really scary kind of voice. We used to get people good with that thing.

    I remember calling up a local fuel company asking them if they had "natural" gas, the really smelly kind. The guy was an awesome sport about it and played along. Great times.

    When I was a teen I called an STD hotline and asked if I you could catch HIV through cannibalism and does the virus die with the body or do you have to cook it first.

    They hung up on me.

    I still make them. =P My favorite one was a couple months ago was when we called a very homophobic boy in our grade asking him if had ever gotten harassed in the workplace for his sexual orientation or gender identity, ending with a wonderfully deadpanned "Are you a hermaphrodite?"

    This was some time in the mid 80s. We'd call an 800 number from a pay phone at our apartment complex to order encyclopedias COD to some other kid in our apartment complex. :rabbit: I thought I was soooo slick, LOL. It must've been a slow, boring day because they took the order, haha.

    My sister and her friend crank called the friend's neighbor. I guess he had really white legs and he would water the lawn in his shorts all the time. So the called him and up and said "hello white legs". To their surprise, he responded with a "hello telephone!"

    To this day we say "hello white legs" "hello telephone" when we call eachother.

    One of my friends used to call those party lines and invite guys for a hook-up and give them her neighbors address.
