Angry Robot

It has got to be one of the most pathetic websites yet made.

This website is dedicated to finding a toilet as and when you need one, it also has Toilet Tales from around the world and links to toilet related sites.

I found zero Toilet Tales for North America. Yet the front page also says,

Additionally if any Venture Capitalists feel that they have a couple of million burning a hole in their pocket that they wouldn’t mind parting with, then please feel to drop a line to the above address to hear more about the Toiletfinder business plan.

D’you suppose toilets will pay to be listed? Or is it the WAP access that will bring the mad stacks? Granted there’s some attempt at humour here… but also, if I’m reading it correctly, a dot-com-esque urge to make truckloads of money. Boy howdy.

    Here I go first-posting in my own thread again…

    Thought I would mention how that little pastime, entering random URLs to see if they do in fact exist, was predated for me by a bizarre night at university. After a few sodas, to borrow a Don Cherry phrase, I decided to see if there were any 1-800 sex line numbers by calling whatever seemed likely. 1-800-PUSSY4U, 1-800-HOT-COCK, etc.

    That in turn had been inspired by the discovery of the late great toll-free number, 1-800-GOLF-TIP. If you called it, you would hear a man counting to ten repeatedly in a thick accent. There was a distinctive pause after ‘six’, if I recall correctly. Anyway, the magic of toll-free numbers allowed us to call it from payphones and leave the receiver dangling, that delicious voice counting to ten over and over again…

    The wonders of the voice of 800 Golf Tip were far reaching indeed. I am from Canada, and have heard random accounts of the voice reaching, and confusing people, far and wide. Do you know of any other odd 800 numbers???

    No – sadly I didn’t discover any free sex lines that night. And when I try the Golf Tip just now, I get “the number you have called cannot be reached from your calling area. 2CY.” I’d like to know what that means.

    I remember the 1-800-GOLF-TIP, the man counted past ten actually… I think to thirteen.

    Had a thick south asian accent.
    that was some funny shiiiit

    1 800 golf tip mesmerised me for about 3 months several years back. i still think back on it fondly, as evidenced by my having searched for it on google and coming across this page.
