4. Brian Lamb doesn t take shit from nobody
A caller on the Republican line asks C-SPAN's Brian Lamb when he lost his virginity. When Lamb, apparently baffled by the question, asks the caller what he means, the caller responds in a very-matter-of-fact manner by asking, "When did you get fucked?"The reaction:
Apparently Mr. Lamb doesn t deal in euphemisms. He s puzzled by terms like virginity, but when you shoot him straight and ask him when he first got fucked, well then he knows what you re talking about, and he ll even thank you for your frank phone call.
3. Good morning!
A common mistake of rookie prank callers is to rush their delivery, preemptively launching a juvenile penis remark. But here we have a seasoned veteran at work; he slowly builds up to a juvenile penis remark. His drab C-SPAN-speak lead-in serves two functions. It lulls his target into a false sense of security and forms a sharp contrast to the penis enlargement punch-line.
Complete shock. His eyes go wide and then his mouth drops open. He is
a credit counseling expert. Not exactly known for the bluest humor in the world. When the next call starts off he s still so rattled he can barely squeak out a good morning.
2. Well, there s the one on Battle Star Galactica&
The caller draws from disparate themes war, robots, space aliens, deities, Battlestar Galactica in his call but deftly adds them in a way that can only equate to one clear message: I am a complete kook. Pulling off the prank call whacko impersonation is a tricky business but the caller, Republican from Chattanooga, nails it with his delivery: a deliberate drawling voice so believable that you can almost see his tin foil hat.
