I Make My Hookers Talk Foreign Policy

Phone sex at the State Department:

Journalists seeking to talk a little foreign policy with high-profile Obama administration officials live from the G20 meetings in London this week were solicited for phone sex instead after ringing up the toll-free number given by the White House.

In a press release, the White House accidentally listed a sex line number for journalists seeking an "on-the-record briefing call with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and National Security Advisor Jim Jones to discuss the NATO summit."

But after dialing, a soft-voiced female recording that was clearly not Clinton asked for a credit card number if you "feel like getting nasty."
This actually happens a lot; making you realize how many phone sex lines there are. I've been part of at least one direct mailing for my day job that made this exact mistake as part of a 20,000 piece mailing.

The first call you get informing you of the mistake is priceless. Then shear panic ripples through the office as everyone struggles to find someone else to pin the blame on. Livens up a week.
