Somebody linked to phonespell.org from some forums I was browsing. I decided to enter my phone numbers and see what happened.

First, my cell phone. The only sensical one was "bier-856". Dictionary.com defines a bier as "the frame on which dead bodies were conveyed to the grave". Well, good to know that if I ever start a funeral home I'm all set. Too bad there wasn't another three in there, then I could have had "biere-56".

My home number, though, was a bit more interesting. For this one it actually managed to replace all the numbers with letters. And what words are equivalent to my home phone number? owl-milk.

Bier is also German for "beer", and 856 beers wouldn't be entirely objectionable.

Owl-milk is pretty funny.

I knew a guy when I was in grade 7 whose phone number spelled "mad-fuck", which he thought was supremely awesome.
