Young customers at Big Ed’s Pizza are allowed to use the restaurant’s phone to call home for a ride. The old-timey telephone has been there since before their parents, and possibly grandparents, were even born. While I was there on Sunday, Lew Tippie told me that it’s funny to see the kids try to figure out how the rotary dial works.
The antique phone brought to mind a video I saw last weekend. A Twitter user posted the link and made sure I would see this cover version of Lady Gaga’s “Telephone.” I liked NPR’s spoof of it too. My favorite recent version was on “Dancing with the Stars.”
