If you're going to make up an 800 phone number as part of the art for the jog-a-thon T-shirt for your elementary school, and hand out the shirt to all the kids, you might want to call the number first and see if it actually connects to anything. You know, just in case. That way you won't have to read this sentence in the paper the next day:
The 1-800 number goes to a she-male sex phone line.
Yeah, they used a made-up number as part of the art for some reason:
The T-shirts featured the school mascot – a lion – running with a 1-800 number featuring words instead of numbers.
The number was written as a cute slogan for the jog-a-thon, but turned out to be an actual number, said Rosemary Gladden, public information officer for Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District.
And nobody thought to call it first.
And they're educating your kids.
