A Toledo city hall prank at the expense of Mayor Carty Finkbeiner created a downtown whodunit yesterday.
For several hours during the day, the telephone voice mail greeting for the city's purchasing hot line was, "Carty Finkbeiner is a complete moron."
Katerina Bekyarska, a spokesman for Mr. Finkbeiner, said the outgoing message was changed immediately after it was brought to her attention.
"Someone obviously went in and - trying to do a joke, not a very good one - went in and recorded the message," Ms. Bekyarska said.

“The king is a FINK!”.....................
The Lone Haranguer...................
“Turn blue Knifbeiner!”
Someone needs to do this for Berkeley.
Certainly has the name for it.
Someone should follow up by sending the Mayor a case of Snickers.
The culprit can feel free to move to Boston at any time.
Sorry. For those of you who don’t already know. Take a peek, here....
Could have been done better...
Welcome to the City of Toledo Purchasing Department. If you want to speak to our moronic mayor, Carty Finkbeiner, please say, “Carty Finkbeiner is a complete moron, but I want to speak to him anyway...”
“trying to do a joke, not a very good one”
Buy one moron - get one FREE!
Ping. Do you have a twin who works for the city of Toledo?lol:)
So, Ms. Bekyarska obviously knows a lot of funnier Carty Finkbeiner jokes.
Would be nice if she would share them.
Seems pretty obvious their voicemail system still had its default password of “1111” or “1234” in place.
Easy on Mumbles. He’s got an alcatraz around his neck.
Walks like duck, quacks like duck...
BWAAAA! Perfect response!!!!!!
Speakin’ truth to power.
“Someone obviously went in and - trying to do a joke...”
What makes them so sure it was meant as a joke? If the shoe fits...
Looks like they were completely successful.
I confess I did it, I was visiting family in Swanton OH. I took a little detour to the peoples republic of Toledo, and made the telephone voice mail greeting on the city’s purchasing hot line, it was easy. So what is the mayor going to do? Call the Marines, dont bother they are on my side, you commie bastard.
What family in Swanton? I’m an 81 Graduate from SHS and Penta County JVHS! You wouldn’t have know the Pilliod’s would you? I was the Eldest Son’s Best Friend.
I am a little older than you. I went to school with Jeff Pilliod.
