Oh man, that's freaking wonderful. I'd never be able to pull that off and keep a straight face.

Re: Revenge on Telemarketers

Last time I was called by telemarketers, I reported them to the FCC because I'm on the do-not-call list. Sure, it's like an $11k fine for that, but many companies won't pay the fines for their employees because there's absolutely no excuse for callers not "scrubbing" their lists.

Re: Revenge on Telemarketers

the best trick as done by my brother..
ask them to hold, place the phone on the piano and just noodle away for 20mins - slight variation on Scotte za's version but more fun..
hell if i was a telemarketer id enjoy the break and some live music!

Re: Revenge on Telemarketers

When they call I tell them they caught me in the middle of masturbating and could they call back in three minutes. Few ever call back but for those who do I tell them I am having trouble finishing and could they talk to me and help. Never fails to get rid of them.

Re: Revenge on Telemarketers

Great post. I laughed so hard a bugger shot out of my nose and landed on my dog. I tried to catch him to wipe it off, but my wife started petting him before I could, and I didnt tell her, cause I would have gotten griped at.

You would like what I do when the "come to our church" folks come a knocking on my door. FYI, I have nothing against religion but consider those who do such travels unwanted intrusions akin to telemarketers.

Most who do that are dudes. So if you act mega *** and hit on them or invite them in for a "massage" they politly thank you and walk away. Oh geez I love the looks on their faces.

Re: Revenge on Telemarketers

Yeah this guy's good. I heard another one he did a while back where the telemarketer is selling headstones or caskets or something. Mabe acts all depressed and he tells the guy he's been thinking about suicide. The call ends with a gunshot and then silence.
