    You know those really classy prank calls like

    "Your refrigerator is calling, better go catch it!"


    Yeah, I just got one of those, and because I never actually thought people said that in a prank call I bursted out laughing.

    Have any of you gotten funny prank calls?


    ...Or do you just get mad and threaten them or something?

    When I lived in Atlanta I was an assistant manager at a bowling ally.

    So I had a few hundred a night—yes big brass balls.

    Your refrigerator is RUNNING, not calling icon_wink.gif


    I have been pranked quite a few times, but done my share of return pranks.


    One recently....

    Call Hell's Kitchen (A Restaurant in...Canada?). Be polite, start up a conversation about reserving a table for some relatives visiting. Tell them it will be a large party, and warn them it may become routy, but they will be compensated.

    Your relatives are visiting from Greece.

    When they ask how large the party is going to be, simply respond, "300".

    I used to get them when people still used housephone regularly. I almost always thought they were hysterical.

    I don't even answer calls if I don't recognize the number on the caller ID.

    LOL. My mother prank me while I was at work. It was hilarious. I give her props for being able to do it and pull it off being well over 3000 miles away from me.

    I'm still trying to figure out how to get her back.

    I remember the old prank when as a kid would call the bowling alley and ask if they carried 10-pound balls. Of course if they were newly employed they'd say yes and the caller would say "How do you walk"

    I had roommates in college who would call people and use the Arnold sound board to try and converse... Its actually pretty funny hearing people respond to Arnold asking "who is your daddy, and what does he do?"

    When I was growing up we thought it was pretty funny ( no x box/gameboy/PCs etc) So we had to do other things to amuse ourselves like playing in the yard and masturbating in the bushes icon_sad.gif . (and making prank phone calls)
    Anyway... before you could stop solicitors from calling incessantly, I used to have fun with them with remarks like:

    Solicitor: "Mr. Mitchell Jones?"
    Jawrhed: "Yes"
    Solicitor: "I'm calling on behalf of-"
    Jawrhed: "Sorry....I can't talk right now....I getting cornholed...."

    OR -

    "He can't talk right now....he's giving me a blow job...."

    LOL

    Did the same thing here. You could get away with more in a carefree way simply because we didn't have caller ID, automatic call back etc.

    Call a friend who lives far away from you and say "hey, when are you gonna be here?" He/she'll say "what? where? what are you talking about?" to which you say "I'm at the airport. You're supposed to be here to pick me up, remember?". It's even better if you can leave them a voicemail telling him/her that. It's hysterical when they call you back all panicky.

    "Hello?"
    "Hi Mom, it's Adam."
    "Hey kiddo! How are ya?"
    "Good Mom, but I need a favor."
    "What is it?"
    "Can you send me some scookin? I can't believe they don't have any in New York."
    "Some WHAT?"
    "Some scookin."
    {after a long pause} "Honey, what's 'scookin'"
    "NOT MUCH! WHAT'S COOKIN' WITH YOU?!" icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    haha.

    this is almost as good as updog.


    no lie, my 21st birthday I was drunk as a skunk and we were talking about jokes, and my reply to someone else's was that it was almost as bad as the updog joke.


    a good friend of mine (who was completely sober because she was pregnant) goes "what the fuck is updog!?" and I said "not muc, what's up with you?"


    I wasn't even trying to do the damn joke but she walked right into it.
