Review of Offramp - Answering Machine Song

This is funny. The timing is good. It reminds me of a Steve Martin piece.

The caller leaves a message about how he was thinking of her, about how they burned down a house together, about all the good literature on the cross-contamination of food. Then, at 2:07, he says, "Look, are you there?"

You know people who leave messages like this. Don't you?
