    Whether or not they're staged or not, there are a handful since joining Sirius that actually laugh at, and still will laugh at. Here are two of the few:

    Bad motor and shitting



    The scooter store (even though Sal knows shit difference between a home scooter and one you drive on the road)

    Kudos to the guy doing the video though. Adds a lot.



    Most of the rest are crap. Thoughts?

    I am one of the largest fans of phony phone calls. I could do a dissertation on them. Sal and Richard are in the major leagues. Period.

    Calling people up at 3 am asking about the car or the apartment for sale/rent is pretty funny.

    I find them funny the first time I hear them. But not so funny the 100th time.

    There are ones that have made me cringe, I'll admit. And the first one or two tradio calls were funny (like the birthday wishes), but they did waaaay too many of them to be amusing anymore.

    The greatest part of that scooter call is that Sal (the husband) had the ability to patch in conference calling with his wife while driving a scooter, being chased by the police, and being shot at by what sounds like an automatic weapon. Fuckin' greatest.

    Well, to cater to you, and to prove my point that there have been too many of them, here is a recording with over 2 hours of Tradio calls from the HSS.

    Imagine driving a gas-powered scooter around the house though. Ethel must have needed a hell of a ham sandwich.

    I liked Jim Florentine's phony phone calls. Every single one was funny.
    Sal and Richard, not so much. They did have one creative one that I vaguely remember. They called some lady who was selling something and they double tracked Richard's voice so that he was saying 2 different things at once. But other than that, :nojj:

    Ordering pizza with the auto-tune. That one is worth listening to more than once - mainly because the girl sounds cute and sweet and goes along with the nonsense.

    I'm not a huge fan of prank calls but have laughed at some of them. I don't think Sal and Richard are very good with them. I think most of the funny guys on this board could come up with the same or better if they had the entire day to dedicate to it like sal and Richard.

    I think the "swap shop" calls suck. Anybody could harass a tiny program like that. I don't think I ever laughed at one.
