Degrassi Junior High “Rumor Has It” (part 3 of 5)
But enough of that—it’s sleepover time! Over at Caitlin’s house, all four girls are in pajamas, and indulging in an age-old sleepover pastime: Making crank calls. Ah, memories. All the good times to be had calling up random strangers and making juvenile jokes, forever ruined by caller ID.
Annie decides to crank call Mr. Raditch’s house. Somebody answers, and Annie laughs to the others that it’s “some lady!” Kathleen yells, “Raditch has a girlfriend?” Did I not tell you the man is a pimp?
Caitlin thinks it might be his wife, but Kathleen says Raditch doesn’t wear a wedding ring. Caitlin points out that lots of married people don’t wear rings. So, score one more point against prejudice.
The “lady” puts Raditch on the phone, and Annie puts on a deep voice and asks, “Is this Mr. Raditch on the line?” Oh, yes. Get ready to laugh so hard that your spleen ruptures. Because it’s about to happen. This, I feel certain of.
Annie says, “Then you’d better get off, there’s a train coming!” And then she hangs up. No, that was the whole joke. The girls laugh themselves into spasms, tumbling all over each other in a heap. Wow. So I’m guessing the one about the refrigerator running went way over their heads.
