Woman Gets Phone Calls for God

Tuesday, May 27th, 2003

There’s a reason all movie phone numbers start with 555. From Woman Gets Phone Calls for God:

Dawn Jenkins isn’t in the new Jim Carrey comedy “Bruce Almighty,” but her phone number is — and that’s become a problem.

In the film, Carrey stars as a mortal who receives the powers of God. The character of God tries to reach Carrey’s character by repeatedly leaving a phone number on his pager.

But instead of the usual 555 prefix used by most television shows and films, God’s number is a common exchange — one too common for Jenkins’ liking. It’s her cell phone number.

She’s been getting about 20 calls per hour, with callers asking for God before hanging up.

Perhaps Jenny should call and leave her number.
