Blog Pile

The New Phone Book is Here! The New Phone Book is Here!

Taking a cue from the quote in Steve Martin’s The Jerk, “here” is actually our recycling container.

Can you believe in this age of dwindling natural resources and internet based information, that we get dumped on our door step at least 7 different phonebooks, a pile 22 inches high? I’ve not flipped trough a paper phone book in 4 years.

The waste is shameful and stupid.

Are there any Navin R. Johnson’s left in the world who think:

The new phone book’s here! The new phone book’s here! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity I need! My name in print! That really makes somebody! Things are going to start happening to me now.

I thought printed phonebooks went the way of the dodo bird.

    Oy.
