No Wonder Cell Phones Cause Car Accidents

The Illinois Department of Transportation has some red faces after drivers called their newly-posted traffic information number -- and got blue dialog:

Callers to a state road-construction information line Thursday might have been surprised to hear, "We love nasty talk as much as you do."

The Illinois Department of Transportation intended newly installed signs along the Dan Ryan Expressway, which will undergo major reconstruction starting later this month, to instruct motorists to call a toll-free number for information on alternate routes.

Instead, the initial number posted directed callers wanting "exciting live talk" to another toll-free number, which begins, "Hey there, sexy guy. Welcome to an exciting new way to go live, one on one, with hot, horny girls waiting right now to talk to you."

You know what? It's late, and I'm not even going to touch this one ... fill in your own punch line in the comments section.
