LINK: The Story of Lenny, the Internet's Favorite Telemarketing Troll
To those in the know, Lenny’s persona is hilarious. He has a thick Australian accent, a bit of a lisp, and talks excruciatingly slow. When a telemarketer calls, users can forward the call to Lenny, who answers the phone and eagerly assents to whatever the telemarketer is calling about. As the conversation progresses, however, Lenny’s responses get increasingly off topic. At one point he begins telling the telemarketer how proud he is of his family and then later he has to get off the line to go silence some ducks that can be heard quacking in the background.
How I’ve not heard of this before today is beyond me. True, Lenny isn’t going to stop telemarketing singlehandedly, but hearing these recordings is beyond hilarious.
