    Prank calls

    I don't know if you've heard this, but I found it today as I was surfing the web. It's a guy named Scott Mills from BBC radio 1 who is doing some prank calls, and it's really hilarious.

    A few years ago, we did something similar. Call two people, hold the phones against each other, and make an awkward situation for the victims Some guys in my class called a student and our teacher this way, and we had some good laughs.

    So if you have any good stories/links about pranks calls (or other pranks), bring 'em on!

    Scott Mills and Chris Moyels are complete legends of radio, they do other weird stuff to the public aswell.

    Friend of a friend. He messes with phone salespeople. Some are pure genius.
    Kinda doubt this is appropriate for FK so feel free to edit mods.

    lol I love prank calling, ever since I was a little kid, it's always been fun for me, listening to people's reactions.

    LMAO. One of the funniest thing I have ever heard. The music is perfect: Runaway Jet. The beginning is the best part.

    I bring this thread back to announce that Phone on the Cob is offline. I checked it a week ago and the site was still up, but had broken links. It looks like it's offline for good now.

    Ah.. the good ole days before caller id.

    We used to call the local hearing aid place, tell them we need new batteries, then keep yelling: What!?, I cant Heart You!?

    Some times I would call people at random, pretend they were my parents, ask what time I had to be home, then start crying at them like I thought they really were my parents just saying that they didn't know me.

    Some times I would call people at random, pretend i was calling from a radio station and tell them they could win a prize if they could answer the trivia question.
    It would always be an easy question, so they would be sure to get it right, then tell them to come get their prize at the radio station.

    Some times I would call people at random, and just yell OHIO! when they answered the phone, then pretend i thought i was calling a radio station to answer the trivia question. Then make a big fuss that i didn't win anything

    Some times I would call a friend that i knew wasn't at home, then switch over to the other line, call another friend that wasn't home, then connect the calls into a conference call.
    The first person would get the second persons answering machine recording as a message on their machine.
    I would then do the calls in the opposite order so they would both have each others recordings as messages on their answering machines.
