I just thought it would be nice to have a thread for general telephone jokes, cartoons and other telephone humor.  Got any good ones?

A Proposed Phone Menu:

(Not to make fun of any folks with these actual conditions; just making fun of phone menus in general.) :)

    * If you are obsessive-compulsive press 1 repeatedly.

    * If you are co-dependant, please ask someone else to press 2 for you.

    * If you have multiple personalities, please press 3, 4, 5 & 6.

    * If you are paranoid, we know who you are and what you want, please stay on the line so we can trace your call and persecute you.

    * If you are delusional, press 7 and your call will be transferred to the mothership.

    * If you are schizophrenic, listen carefully and a small voice will tell you which number to press.

    * If you are dyslexic, press 69696969696969696969696.

    * If you have amnesia, press 8, followed by your date of birth, your social security number, home phone number, the square root of 1,555,666,777,888 and your tax code followed by the atomic number for Uranium.

    * If you have post traumatic stress disorder, slowly and carefully press 000.

    * If you have BI-polar disorder, please leave a message after the beep, or before the beep, for gosh sake wait for the beep.

    * If you are suffering from short-term memory loss, please press 9.

    * If you are suffering from short-term memory loss, please press 9.
   
    * If you have low self esteem, go away, no one can be bothered to talk to you anyway.

A Very Busy Lawyer

Joe grew up in a small town, then moved away to attend college and law school. He decided to come back to the small town because he could be a big man in this small town. He really wanted to impress everyone. He opened his new law office, but business was very slow at first.

One day, he saw a man coming up the sidewalk. He decided to make a big impression on this new client when he arrived. As the man came to the door, Joe picked up the phone. He motioned the man in, all the while talking. "No. Absolutely not. You tell those clowns in New York that I won't settle this case for less than one million. Yes. The Appeals Court has agreed to hear that case next week. I'll be handling the primary argument and the other members of my team will provide support. Okay. Tell the DA that I'll meet with him next week to discuss the details. "

Finally, Joe put down the phone and turned to the man. "I'm sorry for the delay, but as you can see, I'm very busy. What can I do for you?"

The man replied, "I'm from the phone company. I came to hook up your phone."

Irish Telephones

Recently, Germany conducted some scientific exploration involving their best scientists. Core drilling samples of earth were taken to a depth of 50m and during the core examinations, small pieces of copper were discovered. After running many arduous tests on these samples, the German government announced that the ancient Germans 25,000 years ago had a nationwide telephone network.

Naturally, the British government was not that easily impressed. So they ordered their own scientists to take their core samples at a depth of 100m. From these samples, they found small pieces of glass and soon announced that the ancient Brits 35,000 years ago already had a nationwide fiberoptic network.

Irish scientists were outraged. So immediately after this announcement, they ordered their scientist to take samples at a depth of 200m but found absolutely nothing. They concluded that the ancient Irish 55,000 years ago were an even more advanced civilization, as they already had a mobile telephone network in place.

Tonyrotary

Bill was a frequent user of a pay telephone at a popular truck stop, and was greatly inconvenienced when the phone went out of commission.

Repeated requests for repair brought only promises.

After several days, Bill again contacted the phone company and told that there was no longer a rush. The phone was now working fine...except that all money was being returned upon completion of each call.

A repairman arrived within the hour!

I am a lineman for the county and I drive the main roads. Searchin' in the sun for another overload.  I hear you singin' in the wires, I can hear you through the whine, and the Witchita Lineman is still on the line.

Quote from: AtomicEraTom
I'm related to Vincent Price.

Really? Cool! What's the link? The Prices were friends with the Dreyfusses. I have Prices in my family but no connection to Vincent as far as I know.  But Andrew Jackson is my seventh uncle.

I'm not sure, but he shows up on the family tree on my grandma's side when I looked into it online.

Very cool Tom. I'm not related to anyone special like that.   just Matt.. :)
If you're a long way from home,
Can't sleep at night.
Grab your telephone,
Something just ain't right.

Oh, and I'm related to Tom Wopat too, he lives a couple towns over in Lodi.

Steve, you're related to Matt?


The only people I'm related to are my parents.  I think I might be adopted though... I'm almost certain I'm supposed to be a Vanderbilt.

Hello?

I have exactly one vintage phone, a WE 102, the numbers say made in 1930 which makes it one of the very last manufactured.

On the other hand we have a houseful of vintage stuff, just the usual stuff people have, only older. Our coffee pot is glass percolator, Pyrex 1939. Our hunting rifle is a muzzleloader matchlock. Our radio is a big ol' Kennedy model 20 made in 1930. The Bicycle is a Bruce Gordon touring model from decades ago. The oven a 1950's stovetop. A 1960's tube television (hooked up to cable to get all the modern channels). Et. cetera. The hiking quipment is vintage, a vintage Svea 123 that sings during supper (coleman fuel roarer burner).

The phone works as well as any modern plug in phone and is connected through a Majic Jack and plays and rings loud and clear.
