That's it? I wanted so much more...

I want to have a collection of celebrity voices do my answering machine message. They could be famous for their voice, or just famous! They'd have to identify themselves, and then go through the usual "Leave a message" spiel. If I had a bunch I'd switch 'em out occasionally...

Just for the hell of it!

This is what you will hear if you dial the House of Bissage: “Thank you for calling Audio Cerebral Solutions. This prerecorded message confirms that your reprogramming is now complete. Have a nice day.”

Well I had an old dog and his name was Blue
Yes, I had an old dog and his name was Blue
Well I had an old dog and his name was Blue
Bet ya five dollars he’s a good dog too

Old blue chased a possum up a holler (hollow) limb
Blue chased a possum up a holler limb
Blue chased a possum up a holler limb
The possum growled, Blue whined at him

Bye bye Blue
You good dog you
Bye bye Blue
You good dog you

When old Blue died he died so hard
He shook the ground in my back yard
We lowered him down with a golden chain
And every link we called his name

Bye bye Blue you good dog you
Bye bye Blue
You good dog you

My old Blue he was a good old hound
You’d hear him hollering miles around
When I get to heaven first thing I’ll do
I’ll grab my horn and call for Blue

Bye bye Blue
You good dog you
Bye bye Blue
You good dog you

I once heard on the radio that it is possible to do a personality profile thru a personal voice mail as the only source of data.

Not coincidently a brief voice mail is a sign of high intelligence.

Chris said...

Don't ask how you got it? The man is listed in the phone book. Sheesh.

EDH said...

I find it refreshing when someone presumes that I already know how the standard voice message protocol works.

Meade said...

"You've reached Althouse and Meade.
Speak up now... tell us what you need."

Henry said...

Althouse is the number one google result for "two good dogs"

Ron said...

Lem said...

This is Althouse and Meade... if you are Sullivan.. the number you have reached has been pulled from the wall or is no longer in service... please check the number and try your miserable luck again.

As a troll for page views, that was pretty good. Making the track :43 was brilliant, because we were suckered into thinking there was more.

I liked the voicemail message of my former, rather grouchy boss:

"This is [John Doe]. If I didn't answer my phone, I'm probably dead. In case not, leave a message."
