[edit] Marzipan's Greeting

MARZIPAN: Hi, this is Marzipan. I'm out expanding my horizons. Leave me a message.

[edit] Message 5

STRONG BAD: Good afternoon, Marzipan. My name is Bob {slight pause} Statesman. I'm running for Elected Official this Tuesday. I'm calling to garner your vote. I support all the issues: save the animals, move the ocean over there, just like you. We are currently accepting campaign donations to support our cause against runoff camdidate uh... Cory. In order to beat this guy, we need the contributions of s— constituents like you. We accept donations in the form of cash, all varieties of cupped cakes, and hard rock albums on cassette. As always, please put your donations in a cardboard box and leave it at the street. And really do it this time! I mean, I've never called you before to ask for anything... but seriously... put some stuff in the street!

[edit] Message 4

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, hey Marzipan, this is {slight pause} something funny. Whatever. This is Homestar. What is a seven letter word for thirteen across? And it starts... with... a five. I mean... an "S". I mean... there's not a letter there yet. Marzipan? Nothing? The old cold shoulder, eh? Okay, then how about... a four letters word for censoring a cuss word? {beep} Hey! That's it! Beep! Thanks for your help, you old broom stick!

[edit] Message 3

THE KING OF TOWN: {loudly} BOOOOP! BOOOOP! BOOOOP! This is a napkin alert, Marzipan! I've lost uhmm-my napkin! It's the one I always use when I eat buffalo wings, and I can't find it anywhere. Now, it answers to the name "The Flamingo". So if you've seen it, please have it give me a call. I've got like, fifty frickin' wings sittin' here! I can't eat these things without The Flamingo! {normal volume} Um... sorry for... the loud talkin'. This is the KoT... in the place to be.

[edit] Message 2

ŁUKASZ: Cześć, Marzipan! To jest Łukasz. Czy masz ochotę na lody? Proszę zadzwonić do mnie. Będę w domu, jak zwykle. {Polish for: Hi, Marzipan! This is Łukasz. Do you have a craving for ice cream? Please call me. I'll be at home, as usual.}

[edit] Message 1

STRONG BAD: Hey Marzipan, this is Strong Bad, look I just wanted to thank you for actually putting that stuff out in your front yard! Er, I mean thank you on behalf of Senator Statesbob. I mean, that old hamster cage? That thing's going to melt up real nice! And, like, those Bobbsey Twins books? More like the Hot-b-sey Twins! I'm not sure why you wrote "United Way" on the side of the box, unless you were referring to the united way in which Senator Bobblehead is going to win the election! Huzzah! Anyways, I had nothing to do with that fax machine that's on fire in your front yard. Bye!
