Thatsnwhen my PARENTS were kids lol

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.

I was trying to recall a movie I saw with a lady kidnapped and locked in a barn, and the bad guy remembers there is a white 554 screwed on a post in the barn and whacks it with a sledgehammer before she can use it.

Well now its on TV, and it is called "Cellular", the lady is Kim Basinger and the bad guy is Jason Statham.

She manages to get the remnants of the 554 to work and calls random folk trying to get help.

It's a cracking phone flick, and no doubt ghost-written by someone on here!

PS - why would anyone have a WHITE 554 in a barn?

It wasn't a white 554, wasn't it a 2500? Or was there more than one phone?

Donno dude, the barn one last like 20 seconds before Statham whacks it:

Not for the faint hearted, phone-wise (CONTAINS A SCENE SOME PEOPLE HERE MAY FIND DISTRESSING)!

Anhyow some of us have had parcels delivered like that, obviously Statham has an extra job in the postal service...

Maybe the one John S. showed a week or so ago came from a barn.  Sure looks like it.  And I saw the movie about her piecing the phone together to make a call.  Reminded me of what we sometimes do to get these things to work.

Oh yeah, we could totally get that 554 to work again.  You'd have to try a lot harder to kill one than simply wacking it with a sledge hammer.  As we all know these phones are like cockroaches, they refuse to die.

Kim Basinger did a good job on that 554, do you think we should offer her guest membership? I would.

And on a similar note:

No Bill,

He'd need Statham with a hammer, or the postal service to get it in that condition, I'd still rather have Ms Basinger fiddle with my bits though...

... - why would anyone have a WHITE 554 in a barn?

So later on when it gets good and dirty and they think it's junk they will sell it cheap to a phone collector who can clean it up nicely, like this former barn phone ($11.25):

That's lovely Brinybay, but what if Statham came round with his hammer?
