I took a spam caller for a trip Monday afternoon.
While sitting at my computer building an empire as I often do, my phone went off with a number I didn’t recognize. (REVIEW: ‘Yellowstone’ Ends Season 3 With One Of The Greatest Cliffhangers In TV History)
Shortly after answering, I was informed that warrants had been issued for my arrest on drug trafficking charges. Obviously, I knew it was a spam call immediately, and decided to have some fun with them.
How did I have fun with them? I recapped the first episode of “Yellowstone” and pretended it was my actual life. Fire it up below and enjoy.
A person pretending to be a fed called me claiming I was wanted on serious drug trafficking charges.
I proceeded to recap the first episode of @Yellowstone as if it was my real life and my non-existent brother and brother-in-law had died in a shootout over cattle.

If you’re dumb enough to call me posing as a federal agent, it better be a hell of a lot more convincing than “Jennifer Walker” was.
I wish I could post the full audio but it was too long for Twitter. Let’s just say she didn’t make a very compelling case that I was going down for drugs.
At least make it something interesting like arms dealing. Make it a sexy crime that involves international espionage if you want to rattle me.
Seriously, how does anyone with access to the internet fall for this stuff? I feel bad for elderly people who do because they don’t know better, but short of that, there’s no excuse. Stay frosty, gentlemen!
