I remember e-mailing this around the office... I could tell who was reading their mail by the laughter coming from different hallways

I thought they took down option 7 after it started costing them a fortune?

I just called the number, pretty funny.

I want to hear a prompt that says, "Please press # to hack our PBX."
2001-07-30 01:32:26 PM  
Well if its still there its going to cost alot more now.

I can go down to the Columbia River and hear all kinds of ducks and geese. Why in the world would I call somewhere to hear a recorded quack?

"If you pressed three, but meant to press five, please press seven, now."

(A little inside VRU programmer humor)

Was that a duck or someone clearing their throat?
2001-07-30 01:49:53 PM  
That's nothing.

Call 336-226-1488 for the funniest movie reviews around.

A big difference here Clutch is the 800 at the beginning of the other number.

Clutch, is that guy from Mayberry, N.C.? Sounds like he's straight off the Any Griffith Show.

i laughed my ass off when i first head this, not because i was hearing a quack, but because there was a little click sound of someone hanging up or disconnecting after the quack. i pictured a duck sitting at a cubicle, waiting for his phone to ring so that he can pick it up, quack twice, then hang up. it struck me as immensely funny at the time.

I hear someone breathing also just before the click.

Does anyone else in the US call POPCORN (767-XXXX) to get the time? 767 plus any other 4 numbers gives you the time.

But pressing 676 instead used to send you to a sex hotline lady telling you the time. She would moan, but it was correct. It was kinda funny. Just checked it though, and it doesn't seem to be working anymore. This is in the SF Bay.

There's a savings bank in my area that has bank by phone. When you call and ask for your balance (checking or savings), the voice says "WHOA!!" if you balance is over $20,000. A friend of mine showed me this, and I thought is was farking hilarious. We must have done it a dozen times. My friend was quite happy, too, seeing as how her account balance was that high.

Has anybody come up with the phone version of "pull my finger?"
2001-07-30 03:41:02 PM  
I think the second quack is just the echo of the first quack...
err wait...

quack? quack, quack quack quack!

Um, at the risk of looking like a complete idiot, how does one POST something on FARK. I went to the submit page, filled out the form, etc., but THEN what? Is there a button to click on or what?? Help from fellow FARKERS appreciated.
2001-07-30 06:49:14 PM  
Nostradammit: your article must meet the *high* standards of those who control Fark, like Drew or Jeff or any other of the admins who select the very material which brightens all of our days!!! (you can submit a LOT without getting any actually posted).

I have been a LONG TIME reader and devoted follower of Fark since I saw Drew on TechTV. I was just too lazy to sign up. FARK RULES!!!

Laphroig- It very well could be.

Gogo Snopes!
