Cheaper than VoIP

My parents gave me some Ninja Turtle brand paper cups as an xmas gift - they thought it was funny.

Well, with all of this talk about the low cost of Voice over IP, I decided to install a new phone system at their house which offers you $0.00 calls with no monthly fees.

12 easy to follow steps

So come now, and follow my simple 12 step program to put your home on the cutting edge of telecommunications.

Step 1

Step 1

Get your paper cups (and balance them on your chin to confuse your grandfather)


Step 2

Step 2

Find some scissors, and run back to your cups

Step 3

Step 3

Steal some string from your grandmother

Step 4

Step 4

Cut the string to the length of the distance between your two phones
You have two phones in the house, right?

Step 5

Step 5

Burn a box of matches - and I guess, grab two of them for this project
Whatever, as long as there's fire

Step 6

Step 6

Tie one end of the string around a match, repeat

Step 7

Step 7

Pierce the middle of the bottom of both cups with a pin

Step 8

Step 8

Feed the tied match through the hole, head last

Step 9

Step 9

Check the string is secure and pull it tight

Step 10

Step 10

Remove the current 'low tech' phones

Step 11

Step 11

Place a new high tech cup in the first base station to begin charging

Step 12

Step 12

Place the other cup in the second base station to begin charging

The Thirteenth Step

Step 13

To ensure that the technology is embraced, hide the old phones


In Conclusion


So there we have it - unbeknownst to my parents - I've cut their phone bill to $0.00 with this new phone system, and it only cost $2.50, parts and labour.

Now we play the waiting gameOMG FAAAADE LOL

The waiting game sucks, let's play hungry hungry hippos.
