What's your question???
« on: Nov 10, 2017, 09:11 PM »
OK, I'll confess. I'm an instigator and a goofball. Don't know how it started but it had to be when I was on here mousing around. One of the kids called and I answered in my growliest, curmudgeonly voice:

"Ice fishing hotline. What's your question?".....

Silence.

"Dad?"

"Ice fishing hotline, what's your question?"

I've had so much fun with this over the years. Even in July, "Ice fishing hot line, what's your question?" Great stuff!

When I'm in the right mood and some telemarketer calls..... Muwahahahahahah!

So icefisherfolks, try it out and see what happens. Got a female friend that calls and she gets the "Ice fishing hot line, what's your question". She whines, "I don't have a question will you let me slide?" "I've let you slide for over a year lady! I pay the toll for this hotline, ask a question or hang up!"

Too much fun!

Ok, everyone. have some fun!  >:D :roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao:

My feet sweat a lot and I understand using anti-perspirant will keep them warmer, my biggest concern is staining my new Morino wool socks. Will Right Guard work, or do you suggest using something a little less aggressive like Secret?

This is unexpected fun! Thanks everyone  :thumbsup:

Then if I get call waiting and I return the call it's: "Thanks for calling Ice Fishing Hotline, your call is important to us. Thanks for holding. What's your question?"

I even had my wifes' friends trying to think up some ice fishing questions because they felt obligated. Of course that's where the short answer and "Next question" came from.
