San Francisco Yellow Pages, 1986: In the Yellow Pages that year you’d find listed “Third Ear Telepathic Answering Service” at 221-3333. If you called it you might hear this —
“Hello and thank you for calling Third Ear Telepathic Answering Service, the world’s only telepathic answering service, designed to answer the question: Whatever happened to E.S.P.?
“I am your Host and Operator Ruru the Guru, speaking to you direct from the Himalaya Hideaway.
“And here are your messages for today —

and wonders how you’re doing.
“Sometimes, I wonder, too.
“How are you doing?”
