And the winner ...

... for the oddest call of the week thus far - Mr. Elliot of Los Angeles.
The call went as follows:
<ring ring>
Me: Dan Jones
Him: Hello, my name is Mr. Elliot. I'm not sure where I got this number, but is Dan Jones still the mayor of Sterling.
Me: No, that is Larry Fetzer.
Him: So he was just elected?
Me: No, about a year and a half ago.
Him: How long is the mayoral term?
Me: Two years.
Him: Oh!
Him: You're probably wondering why I called? Well, we are playing a trivia game here in LA and we needed those answers. Thank you. Bye.

Which leaves me with questions:

  • Why play trivia during the day?
  • Why ask obscure questions about small rural Colorado town when playing trivia in LA?
  • Why not go to the Sterling city website and look up the answers? After all, you did enough searching to associate me and find my number - why not finish the job.
Oh well, I can now say that I have officially been a part of a trivia question and answer from half a continent away. Can you say that?


  1. Hmmmmm...interesting indeed. Things that make you go "hmmmmm". :)

  2. Definitely an interesting call.... And isn't it considered long distance to call from Los Angeles?

    Wouldn't it be funny if the person was calling from some tv trivia game? :)

  3. That's so bizarre and random, and why the heck is your number listed?

  4. That's what you get for answering the

  5. Very strange, indeed. I can't imagine why that would be in a trivia game anywhere other than Colorado. Random, to say the least!


You know you want to ... so just do it!!!
