Meh... This was stupid at the beginning. The DJ's did something rather innocuous, the hospital senior staff exploded and THAT is what caused this nurse to end her world.

spentmiles: Despite the "all in good fun" guffawing that obnoxious radio DJs claim, you know these guys love screwing with people and causing harm.  Remember such gems as "War of the Roses" - the DJs call a married guy and tell him he's won roses he can send to anyone.  Dude sends them to his kid's babysitter, or whoever he's tongue puppeting, all while the wife is on the line, listening to the letch.  Is that supposed to be "all in good fun?"  Because that's going to fark some shiat up - and the DJs know it.  The win for them is breaking the couple up.  A total failure would be the guy sending the flowers to his wife.  They want destruction and mayhem for the laughs.

In that light, you've really got to hand it to these two DJs.  They deserve the crown of ultimate morning show gods.  They actually executed a prank that resulted in a married woman, mother of two, killing herself afterward.  I mean, how farking awesome is that?  With a phone call they were able to murder a woman by proxy and get away with it.  Say what you will about medical records, and morality, and whatever else - but you've got to pat these guys on the back.

I'm sure there was luck involved.  The woman who ended up stepping off of the toilet with the rope around her neck, to then claw and gag as life for her slowly faded black, she had to be sort of teetering already.  Maybe the marriage was rocky, the kids were unloving pains in the tits, or the old nursing career turned out to be professional ass wiper and vomit mopper.  Whatever - the DJs nailed her at the right moment and pushed her over the edge.

I don't want to sound like a dick, but bad-farking-ass.


This is why you're on my favourites list

Haven't listened to "morning drive DJ's" in years, curious why anyone else still would be.


I hear this all the time. Just like I hear "who watches dumb network sitcoms"
And yet network tv shows and dopey radio morning shows continue to be the most viewed and listened to features on both mediums.

you need to listen to O&A's Jocktober shows. Countless stations run the War Of The Roses, and they're all bullsh*t. In America, DJ's by law aren't allowed to call people and put them on the air without prior permission. Everyone involved in the War Of The Roses is either employed by the station, or are friends of the DJs who are already in on the gag.

Read this li'l bit of info on it

As far as the nurse goes, she had attempted suicide in the past. And all she did was pass the call on to Kate's room. She didn't do or say anything that would get her into real trouble. She was a troubled girl who didn't get the help she needed when she needed it. You can't blame her death on anyone but her.

Never do prank calls, because someone you call might be mentally ill.

Never talk about cars, because someone might have been in a car accident.

Never talk about pets, because someone pet might have just died.

Actually, just never say anything at all, because someone might be deaf.

I assume it's non computer savvy people who don't know what a podcast is, Where people can talk uninterrupted for more than 4 minutes at a time and half your drive to work isn't spent listening to commercials. I guess the only con is no live traffic updates which may come in handy once or twice in your entire life.

Dr J Zoidberg: Hell she attempted suicide twice before


You performed suicide twice

I like suicide

mcmnky: Had there ever been a prank call funny to anyone other the person making the call?

These guys should be prosecuted just for being horrible DJs.


I've never found a prank call funny, but I've found scam baits to be great fun, since they serve no useful purpose and they deserve any humiliation and scorn that can be heaped on them, just like crappy morning DJs.

At least we're enjoying the satisfaction of seeing these DJs' careers in the toilet, maybe they'll go back to school and learn a skill that's useful to society.

files.list.co.uk...kinda


Though more like:
"Meh... This was stupid at the beginning. The DJ's did something rather innocuous, the hospital senior staff exploded and THAT is what caused this nurse's world to be uncomfortable."
It was her own inability to deal with it rationally  (or use the suicide counseling services available at hospitals) that led to her decision to end herself.

bittermang: Dr J Zoidberg: she could have been like the other nurse who was involved and just laughed it off

Dr J Zoidberg: If she was so ashamed then she could have gone and apologized to Kate Middleton and other members of the royal family

For being a doctor, you have a belligerent level of ignorance toward people suffering from depression.

namegoeshere: If it wasn't the call, it would have been the person who flipped her off in traffic. Or her neighbor biatching about her dog, etc.

Well we will never know that now, will we? And just because it "could've been" anything, that doesn't change the fact that it irrefutably was the phone call.


Actually, it was the phone call and moreso the reaction to the phone call. If the reaction had been a big "Meh", she probably wouldn't have an hero'd.

Personally I think those kinds of pranks are dumb and not even a bit entertaining. Certainly nothing to get that worked up over.
