The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

23 May 2006

I thought I was calling Acme Fence

Late at night, Dennis Dale tangles with the White House voice-mail system:

Gracias por llamar el Casa Blanca. Para Ingles marque el cinco.

  [beep]  

Thank you for calling the White House. Your government is currently unavailable.
If you are a U.S citizen, press one. If you are thinking about immigrating to the United States, press two.

  [beep]  

If you are calling for today's Border Patrol schedule, press one. If you are calling for the daily Minuteman forecast, press two. If you are calling for copies of current immigration proposals before Congress, press three. If you are calling for locations of potential employers, press four. If you are calling for instructions on how to use your beacon homing device, press five. If you are calling for instructions on how to register to vote Republican, press six. If you wish to return to the main menu, press seven.

Well, [beep].

Oh, and shouldn't that be La Casa Blanca?

(Update: It is now.)
