          My mom got a robocall saying the IRS was suing her and she knew if she called back she’d get a real person. So she called back. Eleven times. On the twelfth call after chatting him up and annoying him, my mom got the man to admit that to everyone’s surprise he wasn’t actually friom the IRS.

                          Does John Oliver not know about ATM's (Automated Teller Machine, NOT Ass To Mouth) or do none of the ones he's used sell stamps???

                          Also I think they made a mistake with the address in the Moby Dick chapter. It says 348 W 57th street, but on Google Maps I can only find a 347 and a 350.

                                      3:20 one of the tasks for my at my work is supervising a call center that uses robo calls and I'm actually really grad that in Germany, you're blocked from calling someone more than 3 times a day as a company. Of course, the US won't put up such a law as limiting restrictions of any kind is apparantly better than caring for the greater good.
