Skip to comments.'She's hittin' him with her Bible!' (interview with the Jack In the Box phone guy)

ESPN should hire this guy, if they need someone to do play-by-play on car wrecks.
Six years ago, or so the story goes, Mike Childs left a hilarious commentary on a co-worker's voice mail about witnessing four little old ladies beat the tar out of a guy who hit their car and then tried to blame it on them. But only within the past few weeks has the magic of the Internet, where the recording is now posted, clued in tens of thousands to Childs' infectious laugh and his wonderful eye for detail, all told with his Louisiana drawl.
His phone is now ringing as if there's a four-alarm fire. People from around the world have heard his take on the crash.

Thought you might like to read an interview with the guy.
He told his wife, Stephani, about it when he got home. He said they'll be together for the rest of their lives, but don't be mad if he doesn't laugh at her jokes. He's been to the mountain top. ``It was the funniest thing I have ever seen in my life.''
It was funny.
LMAO I so wish there was an actual video of this...
That would have been something. LOL
Nothing would be able to top it if there was one. THe guy has the best laugh...
I would think that this incident could be easily verified by any half-way competent journalist (I know, that's a contradiction in terms!!). Why do they need to leave the story at "he claims this really happenned to him 6 years ago"?? Why not get up off their lazy journalist rear ends, go do some real investigating, and come up with some real facts??
There was probably a police report filed about the accident, and possibly even assault charges - all of which would be public records. I don't understand why the MSM journalists who are writing about this can't be bothered to go do a little investigating, and dig up the pertinent facts about the incident. I guess that would actually require effort, so they are not interested.
If it actually happened.
The call sounds fake. Very, very fake.
And not funny. This 'call' was an audio equivalent of America's Funniest Home Videos, i.e. staged and not funny at all.
Nothing like a good laugh.
An executive with Jack in the Box confirmed that he received the call.
On the other hand, perhaps the Jack in the Box executive lied.
Perhaps it's all a conspiracy by Jack in the Box and Jeff Gannon to prove that the Rather memos were written by Karl Rove right after he planned 9-11 while riding in one of those Area 51 spaceships with Elvis and Lee Harvey Oswald.
Perhaps each and every Jack in the Box clown-speaker-menu is actually a mind control device developed by Hillary Clinton to convince us elect her President and turn the whole world into a great big socialist concentration ca ... er, village.
Maybe there is just a trace amount of the "essence" of Hillary in each and every Jumbo Jack, and just one bite makes you her collectivist zombie.
Whoa. And we haven't even touched the great Taco Bell seasoning conspiracy which will turn you into rabid Susan Estrich Bush-hater.
Yep, just one bite of Susan's "Estrilada" will have you out in front of your local Republican headquarters snarling and biting your shoes.
Sounded like it was contrived by a Hee-Haw writer. Was the old "mother goose"-like lady with the bible wearing a black bonnett? Maybe she was from Bugtussle...
The call sounds real. Very, very real.
I think you're right. The call sounds over the top to me. I find it hard to believe that he could identify the Bible version from his car. What is interesting is that to some of us this sounds like America's Staged Videos, and to others it rings true.
That's exactly how it struck me. The first time I heard it was when I had the radio tuned to Coast to Coast in the background. I couldn't hear the words, just the laughing and the tone of voice. I thought it sounded staged and phony. Then I heard it again on another program, with the intro and all the monologue, and it still sounded fake. The part about old ladies hitting the man with a Bible was like something out of Monty Python.
Still, phony or not, it's got to be one of the better "why I'm late for work" calls.
You both seemed to have missed the key facts. 1999 and Texas can only mean one thing: Karl Rove.
That kind of laughter is pretty damn hard to fake. Hell, he could hardly speak...JFK
I have to go to work with that image in my head.
I was talking to a friend/business associate on the phone the other day when he suddenly said "Whoa! There was just an accident in front of me!" I'm going to have to send this to him and tell him that he needs to brush up on his reporting skills ... LOL!
"That kind of laughter is pretty damn hard to fake. Hell, he could hardly speak...JFK"
Yeah, I agree. Besides why would he bother to fake it? I wouldn't assume a prank call like that would be anything but dumb. I mean, it isn't THAT funny.
I think it probably would have been very funny to witness the wreck first hand, but his recap was mainly only funny because he was laughing so hard. Towards the end you could tell he was laughing so hard, he could barely catch his breath.
Which would be OK if it was funny... at all.
did you believe the national guard documents as well?
If you can duplicate that call with a Word document I might change my mind.
BUMP for one of the biggest laughs I've ever had in my life. The .wma file arrived in my company email over the weekend. The guys' laughter is so contagious. There's no way this was faked.
This one tops The Great Milwaukee Stadium Running Sausage Slam.
Here's an article about the Jack-in-the-Box voice mail guy.
Here's why he could see the version from far off.
