@Butrflynet,
Telephone operator asking Number Please?

People listening if a neighbor is using their shared telephones lines.

The sound of whipping color beads into white oleo margarine.

I missed the mechanic ringing of a real bell on a phone.

@BillRM,
I hear this all the time as a wav file on 3g mobile phones. Weird.

@Roberta,
Why were the people yelling at the dumbwaiter? It's just an inanimate object....

Wait ... is this a bad joke about some certain dimwitted actual waiters and waitresses slow restaurant service? Razz

@tsarstepan,
Sigh. People weren't yelling at the dumbwaiter. They were yelling to each other through the dumbwaiter shaft. How can the super know whether you're ready for him to pull the thing if you don't yell.

Kids these days. Don't know nuttin'. Another sigh.

As they're being trampled by woolly mammoths.

@djjd62,

Hey, are we getting technical here? When was the last time you heard the cooing of a dodo?

The mammoths were on their way somewhere. To extinction. They stopped off to extinctify another species.
