In the paper this morning, there was an article about a couple of DJs on the radio station KSJO in San Jose. They often play practical jokes for people on their spouses, friends, etc.
Once, DJ Lamont Hollywood called up a woman named Marcy pretending he was her husband's boss to tell her, "I've had to fire your husband. We caught him making love to a secretary in the company cafeteria."
"WHAT?!?!" she yells, not knowing this is all a gag set up by her husband who is also on the phone line listening. "Do you know we haven't made love in six months?! He said he had some kind of impotency problem. Obviously he doesn't have the problem at work."
Lamont tries to calm her down and suggests that she offer her husband some consolation when he gets home because he has just been fired.
"I'm not even going to BE here," she says. "In fact, thank you. Thank you for calling. Because I don't have to feel so bad now about making love to his brother."
Another time, a husband named Tom tried to play a joke on his wife, Diane, who was vacationing by herself in Tahoe. A man answered the phone and when the DJs asked who he was, she tried to tell them it was Tom. Over the next year, Tom was a regular on their show as he went through his divorce hearings and recently, they tried to set him up on their radio show, "Love Connection".
And then there was the man who told the hosts his fiancee sunbathed nude in the backyard. The DJ called up and pretended to be her nextdoor neighbor and asked for a date. At first she said no, but then asked... "Are you the guy with the Porsche? I suppose as long as you don't tell anyone, we can go out. Can you keep your mouth shut?"
