Worried that your obscene phone calls will get you arrested? Maybe you should become a DJ instead.

Boy, radio has apparently come a long way since I was a teenager. While I was on the treadmill at the gym, I heard this exchange (paraphrased slightly, of course) on the radio station that was playing over the sound system:

Obviously high-school age girl: Hello, I have a request?

DJ: Yes?

Girl: Could you play that song...I don't remember the name. That new reggae song?

DJ: (Who has no idea what song she is talking about and clearly couldn't care less) That new...reggae song.

Girl: Yeah.

DJ: You like reggae?

Girl: Oh yeah.

DJ: Do you let the guys dance all up in your ass when the reggae comes on?

(Long pause.)

DJ: Hello?

Girl: What?

DJ: (speaking as a boorish American would to a foreigner) Do you let the guys...dance all up in your ass?

Girl: It depends.

DJ: On what?

Girl: On how they look.

DJ: Okay, well, that's a fair answer. Do you like it when you feel their pee-pees get all hard?

Girl: What?

DJ: Do you like it when their pee-pees get all hard on your ass?

(Long pause. No response.)

She had apparently hung up at that point, and he then played "Love Will Save the Day", which is, of course, neither a new song nor a reggae song.

ah, so that's why you were wondering. i just want to thank you for using "...couldn't care less" correctly, it really bugs me when people say "... could care less" since they are saying the opposite of what they mean...

(Context: I had IM'd Ken to ask him if he knew who sang the version of "Love Will Save the Day" that's currently getting airplay, since it doesn't sound like the Whitney Houston version I'm familiar with. If anyone does know, I am still curious.)
