Tom Mabe Pranks Telemarketer With Own Death

A standout in its genre.

Mr. Mabe makes a profession out of pranking telemarketers. Wonder if he signs up for every free offer he can to keep a steady of stream of incoming sales calls.

  1. This is broken. “A script is causing flash 9 to run slowly…”

    How about a downloadable link? Or embed the file?

    That is fricken hillarious. Talk about a way to get them to not call back. :)

  4. This was gold! I love it! High-larious!

  5. ElizabethD says:

    Awww, I felt a pang of sympathy for that poor telemarketer… but the line about the Mexican midget erased my guilt. Excellent!

  6. Hawkins says:

    Pranking telemarketers is lame. But this was extremely funny.

    There are fewer things funnier than Mexican midgets. Particularly in the context of a gay love triangle murder case.

    As a homicidal gay Mexican midget, I find this hilarious.

    Funniest thing I’ve heard all morning. Tell me he has a website with an archive of these!

    Good stuff, although the cackling radio guys were a bit distracting.

    Watch out for the auto-playing Paul Harvey clip.

    Holy Crapsicles! That was the funniest thing I’ve heard all month. Thanks for a great laugh, Ben.

    I love screwing w/ telemarketers. I’m gonna have to try this one! :D

    I hope this guy does not get into trouble. Impersonating a law enforcment officer is a crime.

  15. jwissick beat me to it. I’d actually be surprised if he didn’t get into trouble since he isn’t exactly hiding who it is.

  16. madderhatter says:

    … and hopefully the telemarketer doesn’t get in trouble for impersonating a human being.

  17. njsykora says:

    If he does get into trouble he may consider this while he’s chilling in the big house.

    It was so worth it.

  18. RulesLawyer says:

    If he goes to jail, he still gets his one phone call.

  19. Namrepus221 says:

    I think it would’ve been funnier if the guy was considering suicide when the phone call happened and had to have the telemarketer talk him out of it.

    REALLY put some pressure on the poor schmuck.

    Does anyone else thing this may actually have been completely staged?
    I mean, I can’t be the only one thinking it, but even if it was, Braaa-Vo.
