Washington, DC: Joke Phone

An old-fashioned outdoor public pay phone, except when you push the buttons you get jokes, fun facts, positive thoughts, or "a random guy who thinks he has all the answers."

3413 Northampton St. NW, Washington, DC
Northwest edge of the city, in the Chevy Chase suburb. On the north side of Northampton St. NW just west of its intersection with Broad Branch Rd NW. Not in a place that you'd expect to see a pay phone.

Joke Phone

An old-fashioned pay phone tells jokes to the listener, gives out positive thoughts, and offers G.O.D (Guy on Demand).

[Sandy Rosenblatt, 10/07/2023]

Created in 2023 by Don Rutledge, a substitute kindergarten teacher at nearby Lafayette Elementary School. You can push buttons for jokes, fun facts, positive thoughts, or "a random guy who thinks he has all the answers."
