Voicemails

Long ago, you could have left a voicemail, which we would have immortalized forever on this site.

The voicemail number is no longer available, but you can still listen to the archive and laugh!

Yo, dawg. I just called to see if you were, uhh you know, a brother. I get the impression as I go through your webpage that your probably a white boy. And if thats the case, you know, I'm just wondering why you utilizin, ahh, this whole pimp daddy thing, which comes out of our culture to make money. How come you can't talk about vikings or the way the indians got slaughtered, or something. You all got a culture too, man, you know. Anyway I'm out.

Yes, good afternoon, Umm, my name is Billy Howard I'm calling from behalf of Minesota in regards to the da ebonics page. Umm, in reading your disclaimer, which I, a person of color really appreciate you putting that on there, um, stating the fact that this is not true ebonics. Umm it's just raised real concerns actually. I work in a hospital and one of the doctors pulled it up and shared it with, um, the clinic. So, I'm just wondering what is the jest of this. Why? I'm assuming you did it for some type of entertainment, um, Joel. But I'm just kinda wondering where you got this from as far as, um, why would you want to do this? Why would you want to, you know, bring this up? You know I mean it's it's it's.. you know at first before I read the disclaimer I was really frustrated and very upset. But again, I appreciate you putting that on there. And, um, if you do have time to call me back I'd appreciate it. I can be reached at ... Thank you very much. Bye
