Answering The Phone: 10 Funny Ways to Answer Other Than “Hello”

Do you ever get bored of just answering the phone with a simple "hello?" Here are 10 funny ways to answer the phone other than just a hello.

Answering the phone with a hello is seen as a polite way to do so. It does not matter who is on the other end because with a hello, you can then adapt your conversation depending upon who it is.

If we are honest though, many of us would like to answer the phone with someone else than “hello.” This is especially true if you know the person who is calling well, like your best friend as “hello” can be boring and just not adventurous.

So here are 10 funny ways to answer the phone.

1. ” Dick’s Hotdogs…. If You Love Hotdogs You’ll Love Dicks!!”

2. What The **** Do You Want?

3. This is Heaven, You’re In Hell- What Do You Want?

4. ” Phone Tag. You’re It!”

5. Hell No, The Voices Must Be Back Again!

6. You Have Reached The Voice Mail For Number …………………. Please Leave A Message After The Tone.

7. May The Force Be With You

8. Answer In A Language The Person Will Not Understand.

9. Boo.

10. Yes. I Have A New Phone Mate.

Some of these may not be applicable to use in everyday situations so i suggest that you know who is calling before using any of these on your caller.

Happy answering!

    Number 2 can be hazardous for one’s health or cost a job, if applied to the wrong person, lol :)
    When a friend of mine calls and I know it’s her, I just call out her name in surprise, like ‘wow, you’re calling me, this can’t be happening’ :)
    Funny stuff you got here.

    Excellent lines. My funny lines were “You’ve reached King Kong from Hong Kong. Grrrrrr” and “The number/person you are trying to reach is busy. Please try again after some time. Ding Dong”

    This was so cute, lol. Of course, since you really could tarnish your reputation, I’d never actually try most of these in everyday life. But they sure made an interesting read, thanks. =)

    Some funny ones there. It’s the advertising calls that get me. Maybe I should use some of these for that type of call.

    Haha, very funny article. The first possible repply was the funniest one for me and the one with foreign language reminded me of one funny moment when I picked up my mobile phone and some unknown voice started to speak in Russian (in which I understand only a few words that are similar to my language).

    This was hilarious. I enjoyed reading every one of your ways to answer the phone. I do agree that you have to be careful where you are when you answer the phone like that though.
