The greatest and funniest prank call ever (and how not to let it happen to you)



Not sure how many of you have seen this, but just watched it now and honestly laughed harder than I have in a long time.  This is in my favourite prank call by far simply because it is so realistic and is truly funny right up till the end.

Updating tonight pretty late, have had a long week at school, pretty tired, but will try and do some blog reading and visit some of your blogs again.  I'm noticing a lot more detail and depth in some people's blogs, and also that some people have gotten their own domains, the next step i'm hoping to take, as well as perhaps starting a new blog sometime after my midterm examinations.

Anyways, I included a Bidvertiser ad on this blog, and would recommend its use, its easy to setup, and you can put it anywhere on your blog using HTML TEXT gadget on your design menu. (Credits to Crunky)

Also adding a poll to the blog.  Please make sure to VOTE BELOW THIS POST under the popular posts list since it may determine the next type of AWESOME posts I make in the future.

How to Remove Yourself From Telemarketing Lists

By an eHow Contributor

Does the phone always ring just as you're sitting down to dinner, and does it always turn out to be someone trying to sell you a new roof or clean your carpets? You can fight back without turning off your phone.

Difficulty: Moderately challenging
Instructions

Things You'll Need:
Telephones
1
Tell the telemarketer to put your name and phone number on his or her company's "do not call" list, and request a copy of the company's "do not call" policy.
2
Use junk-call and junk-mail removal services, which arrange to delete your name from telemarketing lists.
3
Have your name and phone number placed on the Direct Marketing Association's telephone preference list, which the association maintains to identify individuals who do not wish to be contacted.
4
Avoid buying things from or donating to telemarketers. Cooperating with telemarketers may result in your name and number being sold to other telemarketing firms.
5
Maintain an unlisted phone number, since many telemarketers build their lists from the phone book.
