Man, back in High School, we used to prank the teachers. Good times.

When I was younger before everyone had caller ID, I loved to make phoney phonecalls. I even had the "holy grail" of phonebooks for prank calling...a 1-800 number directory which was just as thick as one of our New York City phonebooks. Toll free pranking! It couldn't get any better than that.
One of my favorite calls was to this animal place. I got the idea for the call from the movie "The Freshman". I made the call using one of those old gangster type of voices you heard in those old movies.
I told the lady who picked up the phone that a friend of mine went out of town and asked me to watch his lizard. I then told her that I didn't know what to feed it. She then asks me what kind of lizard it was, so I told her that my friend told me it was some kind of "Komono or Komoto, whatever you call it, dragon" (I was trying to play stupid with her the whole time). She then pauses and says in an all freaked out voice..."Do you mean Komodo Dragon!" So I say yeah that's it. Then she says...."Please hold!" After a few minutes of being on hold another lady answers telling me that it couldn't be a Komodo Dragon because they were an endangered species. (duh why do you think I'm making this call for?)
She wanted to call up some U.S. Department for endangered animals or something to report this, but then she asked me some more questions and came to a conclusion that I had a Monitor lizard instead. The funny thing is that she actually gave me tips on how to feed the thing, not that I really had a lizard or anything. She said to go to a local pet store and pick up some dead frozen rats. Then she told me to put them in a pot of boiling water to defrost them before feeding them to the lizard. Very descriptive and if I ever get a real lizard that size I now know what to do...LOL!
Another call I can think of backfired on me and a bunch of friends once. We used to call Dail-a-matress, 1-800-MATTRES (Leave off the last "S" for savings!) all the time to mess with them. One time about a minute after we hung up the phone, it rings. When we pick up it was the lady who we just messed with from Dial-a-matress. She says "Don't F@CK with Dial-a-matress!" and hangs up. We were all in shock thinking how the hell did she do that because like I said this was way before caller ID and all of those other neat phone features that we all have today. I know those features have been around much longer than most of us have had them on our phones, so maybe businesses had access to them before residential home phones did.
In any case that pretty much halted our fun for awhile.

I used to talk dirty to telemarketers, if that counts. Technically, they called me, I didn't call them.

man caller id killed the art of the prank phonecall.
Me and my best friend had our own "characters"
His was a "mentally challenged" kid named Bubba lasher.
Bubba would always loudly spell out his name and liked to...well, lets just say he'd insinuate things that would clear out our high school for a few hours at a time.
Mine was Ed Lassiter of Lassiter sprinklers and landscaping.
Ed would call folks either very late at night or very early in the morning and tell them that we were en route to the persons house to start work.
another fun one, My mom was a teacher, and like all teachers, had a teacher directory of every other teachers home phone number.
This was pure gold in jr. high.
Our jerky music teacher would make the entire class sing scales each day. but instead of do-re-mi, it was all no-no-no-no's
*and no, shia lebeouf didn't go to my school, i don't know where he got that from*
anyways, we'd call him at three in the morning and sing those stupid no-scales.
in the white pages, we'd call every Manson and ask for Charlie.
Rhino DVD sets, boglins, joes transformers and Resident evil all in my most randomest bst thread on the tank.
