A Dutch performance artist has set up a voicemail account for God, just in case you’d like to leave a few words about the way the Almighty has been running things lately.
Van der Dong said he set up the number to give people an opportunity to take pause and contemplate life. “Like praying, leaving a voicemail message is a way to organize your thoughts,” he said. “It’s a perfect combination for some contemplation.” Callers dialing 06-4424-4901 (or +316-4424-4901 if calling from outside the Netherlands) from March 7 will hear: “Hi, you are speaking to God. I’m not in right now so leave a message after the beep.”
I’m reminded of this Manhattan Transfer classic.
