I’m Kind of a Big Deal:

a turtle here, a turtle there

May 12, 2011

A few months ago one of my favorite blogs StoolLaLa (R.I.P) posted about turtle calls and it instantly became my new obsession. What is a turtle call, you ask?

Taken directly from the turtlecalls website:

for two (2) dollars i will call your friend or enemy or boss or whoever and pretend to be a turtle for up to (2) minutes.  i am the first and best company for your turtlecall needs – the copycats may be cheaper but they barely even sound like real turtles.

The second I read about this amazing service I knew I had to buy them for my friends immediately. Although I bought 6, only 3 of my friends picked up their phones (LAMEOS).

I feel as if it my obligation to share these gems with you. Also, when the hell is someone going to buy me a fucking turtle call? If I don’t get one of these for my birthday I may have to start eating turtle soup for every meal. Just a warning.

First, Cari, my long lost love, who obviously knew it was coming (TWSS) …

And then Rebecca… genuinely confused and also my favorite one posted to date.

Edit: Oh eff balls. Somehow I forgot that Jenn‘s call has also been posted. Spoiler alert, it features forever lazys and her awesome laugh. Enjoy.

    Rebecca’s is practically as good as “Capt. Jack Sparrow” by The Lonely Island featuring M. Bolton. I’ve listened to it almost as many times.
