The Legend of Curly-Pop

Last week my wife forgot to turn her cell phone off and the damned thing started ringing about 4:00 AM. I got up, turned it off and went back to sleep. It could only be a wrong number.

I forgot all about until the next day when my wife insisted that I listen to two messages left by the caller. She was giddy with excitement. She hit the switch and then came the voice. It was a woman who sounded exactly like Wanda Sykes, except it was no joke. Regardless, it was arguably the funniest thing I’ve ever heard. She was pissed and it went like this:

“I don’t know where you is, but I hope it was worth it. I’m tired of y’all leaving them kids with any mother-fuckin-body who’ll take them. You left the door to my house unlocked and somebody coulda’ come and steal my kids. I don’t know how many niggers you fuckin, but I seen that last bitch. And now you done gone too far. Now Curly-Pop is gonna find you and bust yo ass!”

Did I mention she was pissed?

I can’t reproduce it accurately with words, and that’s where I need your help. If someone could tell me how to capture it into a file, you’ll be treated to the real thing. I’ve listened to these messages at least ten times and I’m here to tell you, it’s funny shit. Shit you just can’t make up. So how do I save and post these gems?

I should mention that the actual calls are somewhat longer and a lot more profane.

I don't know if there's a simple way to rip them directly off the phone, best bet might be to find someone with a mic and record them as MP3's.

You could buy one of those phone tap things from Radio Shack, plug it into the computer, call the voice mail from a land line and record the message to a file (.wav or .mp3).
I've never tried that but it makes sense to me.

That IS the funniest shit I've heard.
Curly Pop? Awesome!

All you had to say was 'Wanda Sykes' and I heard her voice through the whole thing. Where'd that bitch go, anyway? I haven't heard anything from her on Comedy Central or nothin for a while.
