Okay I found it:

Quote:
1. Pig's Feet
Call up a butcher or the meat department at a supermarket and ask if they have pig's feet. When the person on the line says yes, tell him to wear shoes so that no one will notice. Then hang up.

I figured out the "pigs feet," glad to see I was right.

I'm still waiting on "Mrs. Walls."
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.
Ain't life unkind?"

There were a lot of these types of calls used on the Simpsons.

Don't think I've heard that one.


I'm still waiting on the rest of this one.


The rest of this one, or rather, the way I used to do it fifty years ago.

Pick a random number out of the phone book. Dial it. When person answers, you ask them if their refrigerator is running. When they answer "Yes" you say, "Well you better go catch it!"

A variation would be to say you're from the electric company and that people have been reporting that their refrigerator stopped running. You ask the to go check on theirs. They do, and they return and say "Yes" and you deliver the same line.


I think Critter got the answer I was looking for, but thanks. Already knew the refrigerator one.
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

"You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one."

I won't forget you Robert.

Aha! Now I see my error! Mea Culpa!
What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

Frankly, the only one I ever knew of was the refrigerator! I'm enlightened Smile

I'm not a fan. I just saw some segment somewhere that showed a bunch of those pranks all at once. Some things just leach into one's life. Smile

I'm trying to make up a Michael specific one playing on Baker/Bread/Dough but it's 12.45am here and I'm too tired - must try again tomorrow - could be fun, but probably an expensive prank call to make from Australia.
