I've just been playing with / learning the IVR setup in asterisk/trixbox so I can demo it, and I realised there is great potential for some sillyness with it...

Does anyone have a particularly silly IVR they want to share?

Every Christmas we slip in  "Press 4 to speak to Santa" which transfers you to Telecom's Santa line.

Amazing how many people miss it!

I'd not thought of the duck angle...
I've just added a cow option to mine, there's more cows in Canterbury than sheep now anyway. Laughing

Hmmm, imagine the fun you could have if you could change the ____ IRD system...

Edited: Cause I can't type....  Damn.
