Well that sucked.

I suppose if your target audience is 40 year old guys who spent their prepubescent years jerkin' it to D&D in their grandmas basement (and probably still live there), then well played sir.. well played.

What's your mom's phone number? Lemme prank call her and tape it and show you how it's done.

Well I should definitely take comedy lessons from you, bro. I mean with that incredibly unique bit of satire about a 40 year old living in his mom's basement playing Dungeons and Dragons. Well done.

And then you throw in a mom joke also. Wow. Your comedic prowess is staggering. Do you give lessons on how to be funny? Let me know, I'd love to enroll in your class.

I stopped listening at 60 seconds. It took too long to get to the point. Sorry not my type of phone prank.

If I might suggest, can you get the person on the other end of the phone more involved with more questions earlier. questions that make them want to stay on the line.

If you had called me with the strange voice an manner of speaking I would have hung up.

If I had been in my car I would have switched stations early on. just my thoughts

So an old racist guy calling a business hasn't been done at least three times on Crank Yankers?

You missed my point all together.. I used those worn out cliches' to point out your OWN tired, done a hundred times before bits.. and done much better and shorter, I might add.

What are you going to do next, Mr. Original? Call Home Depot and ask questions about Caulk?

Bits like that are why stations are axing their morning teams and picking up syndicated shows.
