    Has anyone seen this show, if you havent it is puppets that make crank calls to people and they use it as a tv show. Many of the puppets voices are actors from saturday night live. Personaly i think spoonie Luv ( Tracy Morgan SNL )from up above is my favorite, when he starts up i just cant stop laughing. This is not a show for children.

    Yeah, I used to watch it all the time, but I haven't seen it in a while. Good stuff, I have my email set up so that it yells "I got mail, yay!" whenever I get email.

    I love that show! For me, the thing is to check out the background during the skits. You see the craziest things! BTW, the old man is my fave.

  6. It's alright....but some of the calls just aren't funny at all.

    I love it when Jimmy Kimmel's kids do them. Because they're extremely childish and reminds me of when I would prank call people as a lad.

    ::at the bowling alley::

    "Do you have two 8-pound balls?"

    "Yes, I do"

    "THEN HOW DO YOU GO TO THE BATHROOM?!"

    Back many a day ago, when I was a young bored teen, and caller ID hadn't been invented, I was a master of the prank calls. Some of them were kinda mean though. The meaner of them includes, calling a random number, and when they answered just say.....Grandpa? (or grandma). More times that not, they told you you had the wrong number. BUT, every once in a while they would reply with "richie, is that you?".

    At that point you let gramps know you friends just ditched you at the local 24 hour convenience store, and you needed a ride home....this of course being somewhere between midnight, and 3 am.

    It also was fun to call a random person, and tell them you were officer cumstein, and you were calling them in regards to a loud music complaint....and then of course proceed to argue with them, and threaten to abuse your authority with them yada yada....

    Man I was a dick as a teen! lol

    That was Spoonie Love's crank call to a personal ad company. He wanted to put it in a personal wanted ad.

    I was an evil prank calling teenager, too. After we got done rehearsing, my first garage band would sit around and try to top each other with the best prank calls. Ones I can take credit for, that the victims fell for lock, stock, and barrel...

    "Hello, Mrs. Jones? This is Frank Holmes with the county health clinic. I'm calling in regards to your daughter (stuck up classmate). We've treated a young man for a venereal disease, and your daughter's name appears on his list of recent sexual contacts..."

    "Hello, Mr. Jones (Classmate was a Jr., sharing same first name with the father. He had been recently busted by his dad for having some pot). This is Gary Dotson of Mellow Mail in Berkeley, California. I'd just like to confirm your order for one executive model hash pipe, two deluxe cocaine purity testers, and a box of extra-size rolling papers..."

    "Hello, Mrs. (Read name right out of phone book)? This is Jeff Krunz down at Radio Shack. We have the electric car you ordered and it still needs to be picked up. (Caller claims they didn't order it) Let's see, Mrs. X, I have the order as (read name and address from phone book). Yes, we received a deposit of $500 from you and the balance due is $5500. If we can't get you to pay the balance, we'll be forced to turn this over to our corporate legal department. Perhaps you could come down to the store and clear this up if it's an error. Okay, we'll see you this afternoon..."

    Man, I was a ruthless little turd.

    :meh:
