Body of content:
In this classic Chinese takeout prank call, I told these funny employees that I was calling from the local telephone company and needed to “test their lines”. Right away, they tried to get off the phone because the manager wasn’t in, but I managed to get one nice lady to stay on the line through the weirdest phone test ever! I brought in Russell, with some occasional Buk Lau flair, to ask her to say some ridiculous lines back to me on the phone.
The lady was so nice and a great sport through this hilarious conversation. She got a huge kick out of Buk Lau’s “SUMBOOODEEE!”. Should I pull another “testing the phone lines” prank on some more restaurants? What phrases would you like me to ask them to say next time? Let me know what you think in the comments below!
