As a child, I had a little spiel memorised for when I answered the phone.  "Hello, XXX's residence, this is XXX."

One day I answered the phone, and some malicious little wire got crossed in my brain, and out came another memorised spiel, "Our Father, who art in heaven..."

Fortunately, it was the preacher calling.  He thought it was cute.

Well, that's the thing about phones...before caller ID, we never knew who was on the other end! I like your Eagle Nebula avatar, by the way!

That is such a cute story you are very lucky that is was a preacher calling! When I was little I would be to afraid to answer the phone, looking back I have no idea why!
