My m8 Paul Howe sent me this today.

I thought I'd share it with y'all


Answering Machine One-Liners


WE ARE BORG. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE. YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED. But we're not home right now, so leave a message at the tone and we'll assimilate you later.

-----------

Hi! John's answering machine is broken. This is his refrigerator. Please speak very slowly, and I'll stick your message to myself with one of these magnets.

----------

Please leave a message. However, you have the right to remain silent. Everything you say will be recorded and will be used by us.

-----------

Very fast Hi, this is 904-4344. If you want to leave a message, please wait for the tone. If you want to leave your name and number, please press pound, press 3, then dial your name, then press 6 and dial your number. If you want to leave your name and just a message, press star, press 6, ask for extension 4443, then leave your name and message. If you want to leave your number and the time you called, please press star twice, spin in a circle, press 1 twice, talk loud and BEEP)

-----------

'Ello. My name ees Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Leave your name and number, and prepare to die.

-----------

This is the Literacy Self-Test Hotline. After the tone, leave your number, and recite a sentence using today's vocabulary word. Today's word is "supercilious."

-----------

Greetings, you have reached the Sixth Sense Detective Agency. We know who you are and what you want, so, at the sound of the tone, please hang up.

-----------

I can't come to the phone now because alien beings are eating my brain. Leave a message anyway, and after the alien beings assume my shape, one of them will get back to you.

----------

Rod Sterling imitation You're dazed, bewildered, trapped in a world without time, where sound collides with colour and shadows explode. You see a sign post up ahead. This is no ordinary telephone-answering device..... you have reached "The Twilight Phone"!

----------

Thank you for calling 434-2322. If you wish to speak to Tim, push 1 on your touch tone phone now. If you wish to speak to Lynn, push 2 on your touch tone phone now. If you have a wrong number, push 3 on your touch tone phone now. All of this button pushing doesn't do anything, but it is a good way to work off anger, and it makes us feel like we have a big-time phone system.

-----------

Thank you for calling the Metropolitan Church of the Holy Bible. Today's commandment is Number 6: Thou shalt not... er... Bear a... er... Shalt not witness thy... uh... neighbour's, oh, I mean, false... er... Shalt not commit a bear... Damn...

-----------

I can't come to the phone now, so if, well, actually, I CAN come to the phone now, I mean, like, I'm at the phone NOW, recording this message, but I'm doing this NOW, while you're listening to it LATER, except for you I guess it's NOW, like, when you're listening to it... I mean, like, , gosh, this is so confusing!

-----------

(Recorded directly from AT&T We're sorry, but the number you dialled is disconnected or no longer in service. The number you have reached, 226-0477, has been changed. The new number is 226-0477. Please make a note of it.

-----------

You have reached the CPX-2000 Voice Blackmail System. Your voice patterns are now being digitally encoded and stored for later use. Once this is done, our computers will be able to use the sound of YOUR voice for literally thousands of illegal and immoral purposes. There is no charge for this initial consultation. However our staff of professional extortionists will contact you in the near future to further explain the benefits of our service, and to arrange for your schedule of payment.

-----------

(Klingon voice ANSWERING MACHINE. SPEAK.

----------

You have reached the number you have dialled. Please leave a message after the beep.

-----------

Now I lay me down to sleep;

Leave a message at the beep.

If I die before I wake,

Remember to erase the tape.

-----------

Hello, this is Sid. I've got a puppy in one hand and a Smith & Wesson .38 in the other. Leave a message or the puppy gets it.

-----------

Hi. This is John. If you are the phone company: I already sent the money. If you are my parents: please send money. If you are my financial aid institution: you didn't lend me enough money. If you are my friends: you owe me money. If you are a female: don't worry, I have plenty of money.

-----------

(Narrator's voice There Dale sits, reading a magazine. Suddenly the telephone rings! The bathroom explodes into a veritable maelstrom of toilet paper, with Dale in the middle of it, his arms windmilling at incredible speeds! Will he make it in time? Alas, no, his valiant effort is in vain.

-----------

Hi. I'm probably home. I'm just avoiding someone I don't like. Leave me a message, and if I don't call back, it's you.

A mate of mine does really camp messages...its always amusing to hear the replies. Personally, I like the Chandler Bing one, "You know what to do..."

Also, anyone heard the last track on Lovey by the Lemonheads?

Very surreal
