Yeah it is a pisser. They have some really funny calls. Just like with oblivious it can be really hit and miss though. Depends on how the person on the other end reacts. Funny idea to use puppets to do the whole show. Kinda twisted in a south park style.

this is a classic show, you have to see special ed... it is just prank calls and someone has set them up with muppet-style puppets acting out the parts in the intended setting. and they have a number of stock characters, like a woman with all sorts of womanly health problems, an obsessive-compulsive guy, special ed (supposed to be retarded, he just keeps repeating the same things and calling men "lady" and stuff)... one of my fave shows on the box.

I watched this show once and didnt think it was that funny. Its got to be the muppets I think, they turn me off, and the calls were completely ridiculous!! I think I have heard funnier pranking calls made on some internet sites, better then these ones anyway :o
