Morning Hour Traffic

Check out this phone call! It's supposed to be from a man in Texas on the way to work who witnesses a car accident that involved 4 elderly women. The folks at CHUM-FM (we had a CHUM-FM back in Toronto!) played it and it ws so popular, they had to post it on their website!

Someone on Roger Rick and Marilyn makes a comment before playing the recording, " . . . we can assume 911's already been called" and a woman responds "right". But it is clear that could not be possible as the call begins before the accident occurs.

A man on the radio show says " . . . we can assume 911's already been called" before the recorded phone call is made and a woman responds, "right". But, it is clear from the recording that the call has been placed before the accident is witnessed.

Laughter is, indeed, infectious.

Indeed, it may well have been a staged call. But before posting this now-classic and well-circulated piece, I did re-write the intro. "It's SUPPOSED to be from a man in Texas on the way to work..." I think I remember another one of these popular recordings of some nasty lady calling about picking up her car from a tow yard and finding a turd in the backseat. Turns out that one was clipped from a TV comedy show. But always good for a laugh! I'll have to try finiding that one to post some time -- it was a good one!
