How Far Does This Insidious Jingle Reach?

Please add a comment to this post, indicating

1. Do you know how to complete the number below?
2. Your location (State, if in the US, or Country)


588-2300


P.S. If you give away the completed phrase in a comment, I'll delete it, and then I'll find you and shoot you in the ankle with a squirt gun filled with cat urine.


UPDATE:

I decided not to delete the comments of the people who revealed the end of this phrase, but I'm still going ahead with the spraying of their ankles with cat urine.

I used to get WGN in Lansing, MI. I'm pretty sure it was on there.

dguzman said...

I got it. Had WGN waaaay back when cable first hit. What a classic.

Tenacious S said...

Well, yeah, duh. It is eternally etched into my memory and lives on. I live in Evanston, IL three blocks from the city limit. Born and raised here as well.

A help line for a mattress store? Count me in the lucky few down here in Tejas who doesn't know. But we all know what 459-2222 will do.

YES

Bangladesh by way of Chicago.

No, but I'm guessing this is something from t.v. and I don't watch much.

Canton, Ohio.

I don't know that number, but sometimes I find myself singing the Windshield World phone number from VT/NH. 1-800-639-0666. It haunts my dreams.

BeckEye said...

Empire!

Slave to the dogs said...

Yes, but now it's 800-588-2300. First saw it in New Mexico and am still seeing it in Colorado.

The company is aptly named, I'll give them that.

Dr. Zaius said...

Certainly! 588-2300, 588-2301, 588-2302, 588-2303... Right?

God Bless WGN, connecting the country with insidious jingles.

freida b, and what does 459-2222, pray tell?

dc, my wife's cell number is very close to that number, and no, her name isn't Jenny.

gizmorox, I don't believe I've had the pleasure of hearing that jingle.

s_tothe_d, New Mexico? Colorado? I honestly had no idea it stretched that far. Yeah, you're right about the name.

Oh, dr z, you minx!

BeckEye said...

Yeah, I didn't pay attention to the rules. My ankles suddenly feel wet and stinky.

Freida Bee said...

"459-2222 gets a Mr. Gatti's pizza delivered to you!"

Splotchy said...

freida b, that's a number I can fully support.
