    Where I used to work, our telephone number was identical to one of the C-SPAN numbers, save for the area code being off by one digit. Plenty of local idiots would think it was a local call, so they got me instead. Oh how I loved that!

    Most of the time I'd ask them what their political slant was, then explain to them that they needed to answer a few litmus questions--you know, just so we knew they were on the level. It always ended the same way. "I'm sorry sir, but they way you've answered the questions indicates that you're actually a Democrat, calling the Republican line just to be disruptive. We're not going to be putting you on the air. Please don't call back." That was followed by a variety of upset indignation. "That's right, we are the liberal media and we're silencing your voice." *click*

    One day I was feeling particularly mean, and told a little old lady that my producer was flagging me down. I switch to different voice, explained that I was the producer, and that she was our millionth C-SPAN caller. Oh, we had quite the event planned for her. We'd bring her onto Washington Journal to allow her to give her perspective on the day's events. This is TV, you know, so it's all planned many weeks out. You'll be on in about two months, ma'am. We'll fly you out, all expenses paid. Let me get your contact information down, and I'll get back to you in about three weeks for the final arrangements. Go out and buy yourself a new dress and tell all your friends... She was very, very excited!

    It also worked the other way. I could call into work and fuck with whomever was on shift. The 1996 election night was particularly fun, when Dole conceded early on. I called in, got the new guy, and told him I thought it was bullshit. He kept trying to tell me I'd reached an Air Force weather station. I kept telling him that was just another lie from the liberal media--why, didn't he know that the California polls were still open? I demanded names and numbers. He gave me the big boss's number. I told him he was finished. I called back a few minutes later, and talked to one of the other guys. He said Scott had curled up on the floor in the fetal position. Scott was a weird one.

    "Am I on the air?"

    "Yes"

    "FUCK!"

    That was awesome. I know I'm gonna shoot this one around awhile. The "when did you get fucked?" part was pretty funny, too

    Okay... Now that would be funny! Not you pranking him, but Ed being on C-Span.
