The Outgoing Message I’d Love To (But Probably Shouldn’t) Leave On My Answering Machine (Limerick)
The Outgoing Message I’d love To (But Probably Shouldn’t) Leave On My Answering Machine
By Madeleine Begun Kane
Your party can’t come to the phone.
She’s at lunch or home sick. Please don’t moan.
Leave a message, or not.
I don’t care — I’m a bot.
But my owner says, “Leave me alone!”
UPDATE: Happy National Inane Answering Machine Message Day! (January 30th)
UPDATE 2: April 25 is National Telephone Day.
