Hi. Now you say something.
Greetings, you have reached the Sixth Sense Detective Agency. We know who you
are and what you want, so at the sound of the tone, please hang up.
Hello. I'm around now but cannot find the phone. Please leave a message and I
will call you up as soon as I find it.
I can't answer the phone now because I have amnesia and I feel stupid talking to
people I don't remember. I'd appreciate it if you could help me out by leaving
my name and telling me something about myself. Thanks.
Hi. I'm probably around, but I'm just avoiding someone I don't like. Leave me a
message, and if I don't call back, it's you.
This is not voicemail. This is a telepathic thought-recording device. After the
tone, think about your name, your reason for calling, and a number where I can
reach you, and I'll think about returning your call.
You're growing tired. Your eyelids are getting heavy. You feel very sleepy now.
You are gradually losing your willpower and your ability to resist suggestions.
When you hear the tone, you will feel helplessly compelled to leave your name,
number, and a message.
~ Roses are red, Violets are cheap, Leave your message After the beep.

Once there was a little boy who lived in the country. They had to use an outhouse, and the little boy hated it because it was hot in the summer, cold in the winter and stank all the time. The outhouse was sitting on the bank of a creek and the boy determined that one day he would push that outhouse into the creek.
One day after a spring rain, the creek was swollen so the little boy decided today was the day to push the outhouse into the creek. So he got a large stick and started pushing. Finally, the outhouse toppled into the creek and floated away.
That night his dad told him they were going to the woodshed after supper. Knowing that meant a spanking, the little boy asked why. The dad replied, "Someone pushed the outhouse into the creek today. It was you, wasn't it, son?" The boy answered yes.
Then he thought a moment and said, "Dad, I read in school today that George Washington chopped down a cherry tree and didn't get into trouble because he told the truth."
The dad replied, "Well, son, George Washington's father wasn't in that cherry tree."
