Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Did you know that our friends across the pond, in all their subtle humored-glory, have a prank phone calling show all their own? I think Crank Yankers could learn a thing or two from these guys. Or its quite possible that its only funny if you're high. Either way, give it a look and tell us what you think.
