Does anybody remember the Jerky Boys? I had a couple of their CDs years ago, and I saw their movie in the mid 1990's, with Alan Arkin and a whole bunch of other celebs, including a brief appearace with Ozzy Osbourne.

They seem to have faded into history, either that or their unique style of entertainment (prank phone calls) could get them arrested these days.

I always felt sorry for some of the people they called! I remember the one instance, where Johnny D. called a restaurant because he got sick from eating fava beans, and he threatened the guy to come over to the restaurant and take care of the matter... and he said something like (in a New York accent) "Look you jerky little a$$, I oughta split your n*ts off the side of your face!"

Spread around via voicemail? When was this? If I remember correctly, their first CD came out in 1992 or 1993.

I loved the character Frank Rizzo - he always got us laughing. We recite entire dialogues within our family, we love this stuff! Nowadays, whenever my brother comes by to help with a DIY project, he asks, "do you want me to bring my f-ing tools?" in character, of course.

Another classic line we use often is, "here is my list of demands if you would like to avoid litigation".

LOL... I don't remember the "list of demands" bit, but I definitely remember Frank Rizzo.. my brother does the tools bit too! I also remember on the same auto mechanic bit "I'll come by tomorrow and I'll start work tomorrow!", and "I'll work circles around ya, I'll wrap your f****'n head in with a ratchet!"

Another one is the car salesman, he calls a used car lot and tells the guy "See I had some problems up there in middletown, I gotta get the hell outta that area, there was one guy he didn't know if he wants to buy, so I pushed his face right in the hood and I said "you buy this f****'n car or I'll break your f****'n head.. I had problems over there Paul!"

They used to be on Howard Stern before that. People would tape the calls off Howard's show and then shoot them around to friends on the new invention of voicemail.

"I'll bring all my glasses and shoes so I will have them there."

"Look here, sizzle chest."

"You killed Frankie!"

"Hey there fruitcake -- my dog is stuck inside the ****ing piano."

"I want you to tear my old lady's whole ****ing place down!"
