    Why panic? It could be the lottery commission.

    We used to have 1 (one) pay phone remaining in our small town, sort of right on the main corner of the business district. Alas, some years ago, they tore that one down too. Can’t remember the last time I saw a pay phone .. except for perhaps on American Pickers.

    I barely remember party lines. And telephone answering machines in my area were around long before caller ID was.

    My first experience with the phone was when you picked up the receiver, a voice said, “NUMBER PLEASE”.

    The lack of any enclosure around the phone explains why SuperCaveMan has yet to appear in the strip.

    What is with the curly power cable? Is that a manual batter charging spinner thing in the middle? sigh…

    I own it. Not the other way around. Ignoring the phone is the air I breathe.

    Hear the ring, and depending on the number, click ‘talk’ then ‘off’, or say hello to permitted caller. Hate when the scammers use the answering machine to spread verbal fertilizer on my time.

    My contacts and those businesses with which I do business have distinct ring tones. Everyone else has the default ring tone. If I hear the default ring tone, I don’t answer. They seldom leave voice mails either.

    I still have a land line. It has caller ID. I also have nomorobo. Most robotdialers ring once and then stop. At any rate, If I don’t recognize the ID, I don’t answer, and I never answer during dinner no matter who it is.

    Ummm…I seem to remember a “B.C.” strip from a few decades ago (I think it was in the seventies) where one of them had invented a telephone. A second caveman (I forget which ones they were) said, “Let’s make a call!” and the first one said, “We can’t. I only invented one!”

    Inside the phone is a parrot, who will take you message, then fly to the receiving phone and repeat it.

    If you pick up the receiver, do you hear Lilly Tomlin?

    Alexander Graham Bell was making a fence with some wood and a long piece of wire. He said “There’ something strange going on around here. I keep hearing the voice of uncle Meyer.” “I told him Mr Graham Cracker (That was my little joke), with that wire you’ve got the world in your power. Just get an earpiece and a mouthpiece and a piece in between and you’ll sponsor the telephone hour!”

    The greatest invention in human history is the off switch for phones.

    More mess ups by the education devices in their artificially made caves. Made for them by the people who made them and the to her life-forms to survive and come back as the new human race. They hadn’t planned on the cannibals across the ocean.
