I didn't think people did this anymore

While calling people for my PT job yesterday, I got an answering machine that told me:

"Hi, you've reached Cheryl* and Jack*. We're not here right now, because WE'RE OUT HAVING FUN! Please leave a message and we'll try to call you back. Bye-bye."

Really? I thought this style of funny-yet-lame messages ended about the same time Vanilla Ice got "thrown under the bus" and left the limelight. Apparently, I was wrong.

A couple of other trying to be funny messages:

"You've reached 763-458-8472. If you aren't trying to reach 763-458-8472, please hang up and dial again. Otherwise, leave a message."

"Hi, you've reached Jenny* and Erin* (apparently lesbian moms). If you know us, you know why we can't answer the phone - we're too busy! Leave a message and we'll call you after we've put everyone to bed."

* Names have been changed to protect these people.

Or it's Jenny and Aaron, parents of toddler triplets!

Mom - the names have been changed to protect the lesbians anonymity - so their real names are not Jenny and Erin/Aaron, making the whole Erin v. Aaron comment not applicable.
