Aug 11 2008The Telemegaphone Is Now Accepting Calls


The telemegaphone is a combination telephone and megaphone, hence the clever name.

Telemegaphone Dale stands seven meters tall on top of the Bergskletten mountain overlooking the idyllic Dalsfjord in Western Norway. When you dial the Telemegaphone's phone number the sound of your voice is projected out across the fjord, the valley and the village of Dale below.

Telemegaphone Dale is wind powered and self-reliant. Recently however, the weather has been exceptionally calm in Dale and there has been a massive amount of people calling.

If the Telemegaphone doesn't pick up, just give it a few hours to recuperate and try again. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Awesome -- finally somebody who will listen to me. Hello, Dale? Are there any pretty birds around? TWEET TWEET! Here birdy birdy! How's the view? Is it as awesome as I'm imagining? Is there a rainbow? I bet there's a rainbow. There is, isn't there? Shit, was that just Bigfoot? Haha, made you look. Quick, a unicorn! Jesus, you're gullible. *flush* What? No, I'm not calling from the bathroom. Wait, don't hang up! I need you. You're my only friend. You and the woodland creatures are all I have. Will you stay on the line until I fall asleep? Please? Okay, now let's so goodnight at the same time. Ready? Goodnight! Oh, you were off, let's do it again. Hello? HELLO?

i would just rather yell like in the good old days....




the people of Dale must freaking hate this thing.

anyone call it yet?


Um, this would be a really bad idea in a residential area... funny, well, holyflerkingschnitfunny, but a baaaaaaad idea


if a retard yells through the telemegaphone and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

I'm trying to fax it. Nothing like the screeches of a fax machine to soothe the sole.

#7: exactly what I had in mind.

#4: agreed.


I don't think sole live around there. :)

I think that's an awesome idea. Now do it in Times Square (no wait, I'm gonna do it and charge $5 a minute).

i have a question tho to the writer (or anyone else that knows), its free right? i dont want to call and get charged like 1,000,000 dollars

I am still unsure how this works. I think it is so cool but want to know more.
