The message said: "We have been taken hostage by two children. Hurry. Help us after the beep. Now!" Obviously, this was a joke about their children. Friends who heard the message, thought it said: "We have been taken hostage WITH two children." And called the police. Oops.
We've done stuff like this. Not quite the same result. Thank goodness - our friends can take a joke.Posted by James at January 6, 2003 11:57 AM
