30 percent of British men claim to be naked when speaking to pollsters on the phone while wearing their wife's bra and panties.

After this advert, we'll be back with more news as we examine an alarming fact about today's Britain. Not all men are married.

What are you wearing submitter?

Simon Carter, head of Homephone, said the company had carried out the survey to try to find out about how customers used their phones

...for making calls with? Jesus farking Christ, this is stupid.

I once had the dubious pleasure of noticing my neighbor (our windows were about 6 feet apart) fapping while on the phone. He was NOT naked. It's a funny old world.

Which means that 60% of men and 73% of women lie.
 
2006-03-23 03:28:51 PM  
I find that hard to believe. The poll from the previous day said they don't change their underwear. And another one said they can't pee straight, probably because they didn't remove their underwear so they're peeing in their undies. Now they're claiming to be naked when they in fact don't change undies? Snuh?

I would find it more disturbing if 90% of people felt it necessary to dress before speaking to anyone on the phone.

THAT would be weird.

Peculiar British eccentricities is redundant.

Naked phone calls? To each other?
 
2006-03-23 03:31:35 PM  
hopefully not from pay phones

Great. Now I've got my head full of images of naked people with bad teeth.
 
2006-03-23 03:32:10 PM  
They're making the calls from the urinal, that's why they can't pee straight.
 
2006-03-23 03:32:34 PM  
100% of Brits who read the Sun have forfeited their freedom to bash Americans on any issue. Seriously.
 
2006-03-23 03:32:39 PM  
I make naked phone calls all the time. There's something wrong with that?

Well, I've certainly answered the phone naked a number of times (getting out of the shower, that is).

My favourite was years ago, when I interviewed the female Mayor of Kingston, Ontario, by phone for about 10 minutes. I was writing an article freelance, and needed a quote, and I had already put a request in to her office to call back. Not wanting to miss the call, I jumped out of the shower on the first ring, buck frikkin nekkid, and stood there in my kitchen, dripping water all over the floor (and my notebook).

And, despite having my Johnson out, I thought I conducted myself quite professionally.

StarshipPooper wins the thread. The fact that I'm Irish has NOTHING to do w/my reasoning.

ctenidae - Naked phone calls? To each other?

All the time. Oh yeeeeeaaaaaah.
 
2006-03-23 03:34:32 PM  
I guess men are just more comfortable with their bodies.
 
2006-03-23 03:34:50 PM  
And we have reason to believe they send emails while on the toilet.
 
2006-03-23 03:35:26 PM  
You'll have to speak up, I'm wearing a towel.
 
2006-03-23 03:35:47 PM  
Were they actually talking/listening while they were naked or were they using the phone for a different purpose?
 
2006-03-23 03:36:06 PM  
It's probably even worse since the advent of cordless phones.

One time I was working from home, and my boss called... I was puttering around the house while we were talking, and noticed that the monster aloe plant on the porch needed water...

So I fill up the teakettle and pour almost a gallon of water into the aloe's pot.

My boss asks "Are you peeing?!?!?!"

To this day I'm pretty sure he doesn't believe me when I told him I was watering a plant.

Really, we're more comfortable with women's bodies. As a rule.
 
2006-03-23 03:38:07 PM  
Why would you put clothes on to talk on the phone?

In other news, 97% of Farkers Fark naked. Male and female.
 
2006-03-23 03:41:04 PM  
Worthiness of the article entirely depends on whether or not the people on the other end of the phone are aware of the nudity or not.

I'm racking my brain trying to find out why the "forty" was letters and the "27" was numeric.
 
2006-03-23 03:45:09 PM  
why couldnt they just say telephone instead of blower?
 
2006-03-23 03:49:46 PM  
I've got a phone in the can.

Callers have asked many times, "What's that echo?"

"I'm in the backroom", I tell them.

"Oh", they answer back:)

It's a convention- single-digit or short numbers you write out (ten, twenty, thirty, etc) two-digit longer numbers you use the numbers (twenty-seven is long, 27 isn't. eight thousand and eight is long, B00B isn't.)

"blower" is much funnier when discussing naked people, isn't it?

You neglected to mention that the said female mayor of Kingston was a 70 year old raisin. Makes the visual more fun for your readers ;-)

Followed by a Dick Tracy fart and a flush.

Actually had someone do that to me.

"sir_nose: I guess men are just more comfortable with their bodies."

I'm female, and I am very comfortable with my body! And all the females I know are the same. And I'm American, so there!!! :-)

/Seriously!!
 
2006-03-23 04:00:57 PM  
I wonder? Were people making calls from phone booths included in the survey? Inquiring minds want to know?

If they were, what were the locations, of the womens calls. ;-)
 
2006-03-23 04:17:14 PM  
Only 40%? I would've figured it would be quite a bit higher than that. I don't do it on a regular basis or anything, but there have quite a few times where I've been caught without my clothes on when the phone rang. Do people really cover up to speak with someone who can't even hear them? weird...
 
2006-03-23 04:26:51 PM  
actually, one time i called my best friend, we had a pretty lengthy conversation...it wasn't until he told me the next day that i found out he'd been farking his girlfriend while on the phone with me...totally true story.

So am I. This is news?
 
2006-03-23 04:51:31 PM  
I talked on the phone the other day while my girl was giving me a handjob. Does that count?

Random_Transit:

That's probably a lot better than finding out he was with YOUR girlfriend the whole time.
 
2006-03-23 05:28:23 PM  
wait, so it matters if your wearing clothes while on the phone these days?

Liar. If you're so comfortable with your body, why aren't you posting naked pictures of yourself right here right now?

/smooth.
//real smooth.
 
2006-03-23 05:38:39 PM  
This is why we need picture phones now people! Oh wait, British women... never mind.
 
2006-03-23 06:16:54 PM  
Oh crap, my terrible secret has finally been exposed!! I got a VoIP connection solely so I could make long calls while naked!!

<_<

I'm suprised your Johnson didn't disappear inside your butt crack after looking at her.
