The best telemarketer prank I ever heard of, for those of you playing along at home... pretend you`re a radio station and answer the phone with "Caller #5, hello! You`re our lucky winner!", then pretend you are giving them a cash prize or something, chit-chat, ask them what they do, then tell them you won`t give a prize to a telemarketer. In the file I heard the telemarketer was right worked up and said "What? What? You can`t take away my prize just because you don`t like my job!". The pranksters said "Sure we can, it`s our radio station, and we can do whatever we want. Goodbye." Priceless!

I think I`ll pick one up today! Telemarketers are ALWAYS calling our apartment. I agree with strangergoat, I`m gonna try this the next time I get one (without the machine).

Telemarketers are sending me round the bend. One rings up here every 5 minutes. I need a few of these.!

I know, the woman probably thought he was retarted. Although the machine did say he had a memory loss problem. Oh it`s so hilarious!!! :-D

"I like purple..."

I feel sorry for the woman. She`s just trying to get a paycheck. I`m surprised she wasn`t yelling at the end.

I have more fun talking about how I can`t buy things because my pet goats might get into it and tear it up. And I always answer the phone "Bob`s crematorium, you kill `em, we grill `em"
the simpsons is just bursting with ideas

I always answer telemarketer like this, "Je ne parle pas anglais."(I don`t speak English in French)
"Oh, oh....espanol?"
"Oui"
-Clicking-Spanish spanish
"Uhhh, I don`t speak spanish, dude."
Then repeat.

That’s great, I can’t wait to build one. Of course I’ll have to make it look a little sleeker. Maybe build the components into a box or something. The problem is that I’m registered with the “do not call” list. Guess I’ll have to try it out at a friend’s house. It might even make an interesting Christmas gift for someone.

Whoever wrote the forth comment (scroll down) on the page...that was funny. I heard that you can also just say, "ooooooo, I`m soooo interested" and then just leave, come back 5, 10, 15 min later and see if they hung up yet. Less effort.

In the middle of reading the article the entire page turned blue with dark blue question marks and I was invited to take a survey... Is there a “Webcrapper 2000” available? It’s either the site (even though I love engadget) or I need to do an adware scan.

Heehee! I would have hung up a couple of minutes earlier than that... :P

That`s a great idea. In fact, I`m gonna try that myself, without, you know, a machine.
