Self-editing is overrated. Or is it?

Becase nothing says "shut up" better than just hanging up the phone.

Hello? Adam?

I've been spending a lot of time lately listening to Ann Coulter. Not cause I want to or anything (god forbid!), but I'm working on this play right now that is loosely based on her, and so I've had to go over the audio that's out there about her.

Anyway, so I ran across this and I have to say that it totally cracked me up.

Ann is supposed to be a call-in guest on Adam Carolla's morning show, and ends up calling an hour and a half later than she said she would. Carolla, who does not suffer fools gladly, gets annoyed quickly and hangs up on her.

Listen to the audio here.

A rough transcript is:

ADAM CAROLLA: Ann Coulter, who was suppose to be on the show about an hour and a half ago, is now on the phone, as well. Ann?


CAROLLA: Hi Ann. You’re late, babydoll.

COULTER: Uh, somebody gave me the wrong number.

CAROLLA: Mmm… how did you get the right number? Just dialed randomly — eventually got to our show? (Laughter in background)

COULTER: Um, no. My publicist e-mailed it to me, I guess, after checking with you.

CAROLLA: Ahh, I see.

COULTER: But I am really tight on time right now because I already had a —

CAROLLA: Alright, well, get lost.

God bless Adam Carolla for doing what we all wanna do: namely, tell these people with their overblown ego-led opinions to hit the road.

If you wanna see the play I'm now working on, it's called Hardball and will be playing this week at The Samuel Beckett Theatre in Theatre Row in NYC. It should be a lot of fun.
