National Discount Brokers Easter Egg - Funny Phone Option

This is really weird... National Discount Brokers is a well-respected stock brokerage company.

The phone number you call will be to National Discount Brokers. The call is free...

1. Dial 1-800-888-3999
2. Listen to all of the options
3. After hearing #7 - "To hear a duck quack, press 7" - hit 7
4. You hear just that - a duck quack! Then it hangs up!

This is very funny. I enjoyed it. My curiosity got the best of me though, so I went looking for a web site and found one for NDB - http://www.ndb.com/ It seems the duck is their logo!

Please note that this easter egg doesn't exist anymore; NDB was purchased by Ameritrade in late 2003.

This just shows you that some companies have a sense of humor and can make you laugh when you're in debt.

That's pretty funny. Although I can't seem to find the number, maybe someone else out there can help me out, a tobacco company has something funny on they're answering machine or whatever it is. It's a little song about tobacco, very cute.

I read about this way back in the day. There were follow up stories in the news. Apparently it sparked quite a flow of traffic, and a lot of people ended up staying as customers. It boosted their client base by 40%, or something like that.

That's classic! Want more phone fun? This isn't really an egg, but it's still pretty amusing. Dial 1-403-553-2731 (it's a Canadian number). You're calling a Canadian National Park of sorts called "Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump": it's one of those places where Indians used to chase herds of buffalo over a cliff, killing the lot of them. The funny part of all this comes when the person on the other end picks up and says "Head-Smashed-In, how can I help you?" Hilarity.

One reason they may do this is to collect peoples phone numbers. When you call toll free numbers they can do a callerID type of thing (ANI?)on your number and there is no way to block it. They may be collecting phone numbers to sell to phone spammers.

I guess it doesn't count as an egg anymore, because it is now officially Option 7 from the menu. If you press "#7", you will be transferred to an operator. Notably, the operator answered immediately, and very graciously transferred me back to the main menu for my Duck fix.
