National Inane Answering Message Day

According to Holiday Insights, today is National Inane Answering Message Day. They say, “An inane message is a senseless or meaningless message, or a prank call. Or, it could be an insane message.” So I guess…call up some strangers and leave them a few messages.

And if you’re looking for a good stranger to call, I have just the person! Sarah Manolis, a 19-year-old girl from Oregon! She’s spent the past four months collecting random voice mails from strangers and posting them to her website at As of this writing, she’s received 679 messages from around the world. Leave her a message about anything you want, as long as it’s not obscene and doesn’t involve singing.


Sarah asks that you only call once per day, since she’s got a lot of messages to filter through and wants everyone to have a turn. Be sure to visit her website and listen to the other messages that have been left.
