piercing wit

People of my grandparents' generation had a joke about a brand of pipe tobacco. They would call a store and ask if they had Prince Albert in a can. The clerk would say "yes" and the prankster would say "well, you better let him out!"

With the passing of time, that joke has run its course. I may have found a product at Publix that could take up the slack. An Arnold Palmer is a lemonade and iced tea drink named after the famous golfer. The country club staple is now available in cans.

OMGoodness!!! I actually did this joke on the phone when I was around 12. Also did the, "Is your refrigerator running?" one a few times as well. The funniest one that my friends and I did was dialing a random number and talking like a little kid. We would ask if Santa was there, and every once in a while, some guy would take pity on our 5-year-old-sounding selves and pretend to be Santa for the duration of the could really just go anywhere with that one...start talking about what you had for lunch...what your dog was mad you were at the mean doctor for giving you a shot in your bum...what a kick ;-)

Thanks for the reminder of the silliness!!!

I was just telling my kids about these calls a couple of weeks ago...silly stuff that I did when I was a may have started a whole new generation of telephone pranksters with this new product...what a hoot :-D
