‘Textastrophe’ Pranks People Who Publicly Display Their Phone Number


Have you ever seen somebody share their phone number publicly (on Craigslist maybe, or one of those homemade ads for “computer lessons” on the subway) and thought to yourself “I should totally prank this guy”? You haven’t? Oh, uh … neither have we. Ever. Clearly — we’re not monsters. But the person behind Textastrophe is!

Textastrophe is a collection on Tumblr of all the prank text messages one person has sent to those who would innocently share their phone numbers with the world. That oughtta teach ’em. Here are a few of our favorites, but check out the site for more.
