On the radio

This is the recording of an actual phone call to a Fargo radio station earlier this month.





Thank you, Tanya!

Sounds like some of the phone calls I've received in the pharmacy. Perfectly innocent perplexed people, and why am I falling on the floor out of breath? I don't know.

Next thing y'know there'll be conservationists out with turtle crossing signs at ankle (human) level next to ditches, and splattered terrapins over the Everglades throughways.

The poor DJ is trying (and not succeeding)not to laugh at the stoopid. Even after he tells her that the sign are for people, not the deer, she just doesn't get it!

How about those "illegal immigrant family" crossing signs? Those signs are such a nuisance on the 5 freeway!

I have also been writing to all of the San Diego county newspapers about moving those pesky illegal immigrant family crossing signs on the 5. Yowza!

These signs with the international symbol are a godsend so close to the northern border. Had these signs been written using just plain English, the problem would be much worse for deer that read Canadian only.

After laughing it suddenly occured to me: this woman has a driverslicence and drives a car. How scary is that?

Apparently the deer didn't get the memo about the crossing..... ergo it must be their fault!

Hey, newsflash for ya - animals can't read!! Someone needs to get a clue!

You are fortunate to have Annie and Mary. At some clinic in Deerland some poor colleagues have to put up with this dear/deer lady every day!

\There's a place in the first 3rd of the recording where you can hear the caller squelching her own snicker. This was a set-up, folks.

OMG. I can hardly listen to this because of the stupid. Is it possible she's kidding? Please?

Was she pulling their leg?

If this had been a prank call, it would have been genius. This way, it's sad and scary... and hilarious, in the mindboggling way.

I once had a friend who moved from Los Angeles to where I live in New England ask me one day, as we were driving, "How do the deer know to cross only where there are the deer crossing signs?"

On another occasion, she told me that that her sister-in-law once thought the "no outlet" signs you see in certain neighborhoods meant that there were no electrical outlets in those neighborhoods.

She thought that was hysterical. Then I reminded her of her deer crossing question. That shut her up.

Wendy has made a very good point. IQ tests before drivers' training..?

What that woman did sounds like something I might do in a prank call, along the lines of the guy who does Ownage.com pranks. :)
