Back when phones were limited to landlines, there was an absolute influx of 1-900 numbers being advertised to people of all ages! These were numbers that for the low price of nearly a dollar a minute (at LEAST) you could call for all sorts of weird things. These 10 were especially strange.
You could call MC Hammer by dialing 1-900-909-MCMC
Or maybe you'd rather talk to the Hulkster himself?
You could always try to win money by doing simple math (which ultimately feels like a scam to me)
Nintendo had a line you could call for help with a game you were stuck on
Sierra had the same for their super complicated adventure games. They would even mail you tips!
It only gets weirder from here...
Of course Jazzy Jeff had to get in on the action
Anyone remember "The Corey Hotline" from The Simpsons? Turns out it was a real thing, with Corey Haim and Corey Feldman.
Why not call the He-Man hotline and have them tell you how to buy their toys!
Or maybe try calling FREDDY FREAKING KRUEGER?!
But of course, you could call a help line not to get someone to listen to you cry, but for them to make YOU cry
Did you call any 1-900 numbers back in the day? Let us know on Facebook!

Remember in kindergarten when every afternoon after you finished your peanut butter sandwich, your teacher threw down a rubber mat and declared it was nap time? Those were the days. Now, no one comes into the office after lunch and makes sure you get your rest. In fact, most of us would love some good sleep. I know that living with young children and a husband who snores has only further complicated my sleep schedule over the past decade.It seems I am not alone. The CDC reports that as many as 1 in 3 adults do not get enough
Guess who's back, back again? Moranis's back, tell a friend!One of my all time favorite actors is going to grace us with an appearance on the silver screen. Remember him from Strange Brew? Or maybe Ghostbusters? Little Shop Of Horrors? Way back when in 1997, Rick Moranis began what would become a long break from acting. He wanted to dedicate his time to his two children as a widower. He has not appeared in a live-action film since, other than some voice-over work for a few animated films, notably Disney's Brother Bear.Maybe his most iconic role was that
On February 3rd, General Mills announced that our childhood dreams have come true: the iconic 90's snack Dunkaroos have returned.Dunkaroos were an absolute necessity during snack time, and we all had our preferred method when inhaling this treat. Some of us evenly spread out the rainbow frosting on each cookie; others dunked the biscuit into the frosting a bite at a time; the bravest of all simply swallowed the cookie then used your fingers to scoop out the frosting.Regardless, this snack united our taste buds. Trucks move 71% of the nation's freight by weight and at least half
