I am Phoning Honey - the darling ducky who always phones the funnies.
My prank-style calls are now legendary following a daring campaign I ran to highlight my activities.
At the climax of the campaign I climbed up on top of a bookshelf out of sheer spite! In case you're wondering, the shop-style names are actually applied falsies. Ring on!
"PHOTON GAMES", YORK
PG: Hello there?
US: Hello, dad, I'm calling again about the arcade machine. You sell old arcade machines, don't you?
PG: Yes we do. Which machine was it?
US: The one where the things go up at the start, and go around and leave a line across the screen. Go wiggle-wee!
PG: Uhh... can you remember the name?
US: I can: it was called Super Game!
US: Listen, dad, it wasn't that. It's called Space Invaders.
PG: We have two in stock, I think, though one has been paid for. We have a black and white one left.
US: How much will it cost you?
PG: How much will it cost me for what?
US: To get it fixed.
PG: Well, it isn't broken.
US: Yeah? But I came in, and the bloke showed it to me and it was in black and white. No colour at all. It was like a Blackjack sweetie!
PG: It's supposed to be black and white. It's a black and white game.
US: Why isn't it in colour? Colour TV.
PG: It's a really old game, and it's just black and white.
US: What's that black and white tennis game with the two paddles?
PG: Umm... Pong?
US: I agree! You do smell!
PG: Thanks very much.
