Can I speak with Ella Phant?

My husband works at an auto body shop as the in-house estimator. You have car damage and want to know how much it will cost to fix it? Randy can tell you. He's only worked for this auto body for about 5 months, but he really likes the guys he works with. They're always joking around and laughing, so why Randy didn't see a joke coming on April Fool's Day, I don't know. But this is what happened between Randy and a co-worker...

Co-worker: Randy, can you give this lady a call? She's been trying to get ahold of you and asked me to have you call her.

Randy: What's her name? 

Co-worker: Ella Phant. 

Randy: Hm. Her name isn't in the system. I don't remember her. What car does she have?

Co-worker: I think it's a Mercury. She said she'd be at this number all day today.

Randy: Okay. I'll call her.
So Randy promptly dials the number in hopes of speaking to this woman about her car.

Woman on the phone: St. Louis Zoo. How can I help you?

Randy: Can I speak with Ella Phant?

Woman on the phone: Click. 

Hm. I guess Elephant wanted to take her business else where. And yes, Randy only got the joke AFTER the lady at the zoo hung up. Happy April Fool's Day!
