Dealing with Telemarketers

Although my telephone number is in the National Do Not Call Registry, I still receive calls from telemarketers daily. I've decided on a new strategy to deal with these unwanted telephone calls. I'm going to print out a copy of Christian Morgenstern (1871-1914), "Das große Lalulā," Galgenlieder, 5th ed. (Berlin: Verlag Bruno Cassirer, 1910), p. 7:
Kroklokwafzi? Sem̄emem̄i!
Seiokrontro — prafriplo:
Bifzi, bafzi; hulalem̄i:
quasti basti bo...
Lalu lalu lalu lalu la!

Hontraruru miromente
zasku zes rü rü?
Entepente, leiolente
klekwapufzi lü?
Lalu lalu lalu lala la!

Simarar kos malzipempu
silzuzankunkrei (;)!
Marjomar dos: Quempu Lempu
Siri Suri Sei []!
Lalu lalu lalu lalu la!
When I receive a call from a telemarketer, I'm going to pick random words or lines from Morgenstern's poem and recite them until the telemarketer gets tired and hangs up.
