Telemarketer tar baby

I just got a phone call from some telemarketing company on my work line, they were doing the traditional robot says "hi, I have an important message for you, press 1 to talk to an operator".

Since I've gotten calls from these pests before, I decided to hit 1 and leave the phone off the hook.

However I just had a brilliant idea. It would be really cool to implement an interactive voice response system that behaves like a confused person interested in their product. Thus when you got an annoying telemarketer call you could transfer them to this bot and let the bot slow down how many people they can annoy.
