I have 48 hours left before my old cell phone is disconnected

Got a new phone on a family plan and so my old line is going away. What's a cool stunt I can do with it that'll entertain some people in the next 48 hours?

Call total strangers and pretend to be a ghost.

Dial the new comedy line (phone number: 911) and try out all the old prank call chestnuts on them:

Is your refrigerator running?
Do you have pig's feet?
Do you have Prince William in a can?
etc.

If you're getting a new number on the family play, go on Craig's List with the old number and post in the Adult Services section asking if anyone is interested in a 3-way with a mother and daughter and see how many people call the old number before it's disconnected.

do you know anybody that got an abortion? Call them using a ghost voice pretending to be the baby calling from the grave. This one always brings the funny.

I would acutally be interested in seeing how many serious responses you would get in a given amount of time.

This has the most potential so far. How will we determine which ones are "serious" responses?

I would like to think that anyone bold enough to call the number is serious about it.

I do believe this is what has to be done.

Record the calls as well please.

Numbers are recycled. You know if you do this you are totally screwing the next person to get the number, they are going to be harassed to high hell.

And it's possible that chuck's new # belonged to a guy who thought it would be fun a month ago to have some fun before his cell # was disconnected...

They are recycled after about 90 days, so providing he doesn't renew the ad multiple times, it should be OK.

hopefully, unless some of them are weirdos and depending on the ad could be a very high possibility. They might just store the number and start harassing whoever gets it

I highly doubt anyone answering a mother daughter sex ad would be a weirdo. But that's just me.
