Please wait.... (pause) We're sorry, but we are temporarily unable to process your request at this time. Try your call again later.

Well, at least now I know where the guy who made Christmas lights so that the entire string goes out with one bad bulb is working now.

But after all those digits, if anyone hears about us accidentally launching nukes to China, none of this happened, k?

That's fucking insane. They should have a web site to do it instead. Not that that would be much better.

Tell your mom for next time, remember cash doesn't have to be activated!
