Prank Caller to House of the Gladiators in Pompeii: ‘Hi can I speak to Mr Walls please?’
Gladiator: ‘Er, no I’m sorry I think you’ve got the wrong number, there’s no Mr Walls here.’
Prank Caller: Can I speak to Mrs Walls then?’
Gladiator: ‘… no you see Mrs Walls doesn’t live here either.’
Prank Caller: ‘What about the little Walls – Frank and Bob?’
Gladiator: ‘Look, I’ve told you once, I’ve told you twice: there’s no Walls here, you’ve got the wrong number!’
Prank Caller: ‘No walls at all?’
Prank Caller: ‘Well what’s holding you’re bloody roof up then hahaha…’ (hangs up).
