My Friend

Do you have a friend that makes you feel better?

I do. His name is Chris. That's him in the background. He doesn't need to be the center of attention...like some people we know....er. He’s the guy who lives in Denver. We went to college together. I told you about him, he has a hip-hop radio show.

I was feeling depressed today. Everything is going wrong in my life. I’m at an all-time low. Then he called.

He directed me to some STUPID website. The radio station calls people and plays pre-recorded audio from George Bush, Al Pacino, Judge Judy, Dr. Phil, etc. aThey call regular people and play the recordings. The recipients respond without understanding it is staged. Eventually they get so pissed off they swear like crazy.

They begin as you or I might... rather then hang up they eventually threaten to kill (or do unspeakable things to) the “pretend” caller. They say things like, "If you call me again Mother Fucker I'll find you and Fucking kill you. I actually cleaned up that language. Even when the pretend caller is Richard Simmons saying "Hi, my name is Cheryl. I'm your daughter.

I laughed so hard I accidentally spit on my monitor. .

This song is for him:
