Wrong number

Typos in a phone book can have interesting consequences.

NEWTON, N.J. - A misprint in a telephone book has led to some callers dialing a phone sex service while trying to reach a New Jersey political organization.

A listing for the Sussex County Democratic Committee in Embarq's white pages sent people to a sultry female voice inviting them to pay for sex chat.

Embarq spokesman Glenn Lewis told The New Jersey Herald of Newton that a transposition error caused the last three digits of the Democrats' phone number to be misprinted.

He said the listing has been corrected in Embarq's directory assistance database.

I've always said politics is the second oldest profession, only to prostitution. They have a great deal in common too. Both take money for services rendered, plus both are out to screw you.

Comments 2 and 3 have something in common. They have nothing in common with the post. Where is Olaf or whatever his name is?

Wow! Way to close out with a super old joke. I didn't know that phone sex was still around with all the video chat technology. I guess some people still kick it old school.
