5. It was funny but also appalling
This woman was so ignorant...

The cranker called a pinata store (really, someone actually has a store that just makes pinata's, I guess that in itself should be a giveaway that they're stupid) and has an arabic (sort of) accent.

He was trying to get the lady to first make a banner that said something like "Islam is #1"

The woman responded with something like "you live in America, not Islam"

The caller then wanted her to make a pinata of Bush w/ red candy in it. And there was lots of back and forth about hating America and at one point the woman said something like "That's why they say God Bless America, because God blesses THIS country not yours" and the caller said something like "No that's just what YOU say" and the woman said "No, when they founded this country they stuck a cross in the ground and said God Bless America!"

There's more, but I think you get the idea. The woman was surreally ignorant and the whole thing was funny but incredibly frightening because there are people who actually think like this.
