Calling Jenny, Part II

This cartoon, Calling Jenny, appeared about a year ago, on March 2, 2008.

And now an update: according to this MSNBC news story, the famous phone number is up for sale.

I read about this over the weekend, and thought it was a little bit humorous, but I had to wonder: who would pay a lot of money just to have a phone number that gets pranked 30 to 40 times a day?? (This estimate comes from the current owner.)

For that matter, what's the big deal? Tommy Tutone didn't specify any particular area code in New Jersey or elsewhere. Isn't this number available in every area code?

The number, along with the owner's business, is up for sale on eBay. He'd probably like it if I provided a link...
