Who Wants Jenny’s Number?

WEEHAWKEN, N.J. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The most famous phone number in history is on sale, and anybody looking for a “good time” can own it.

The phone number made famous by Tommy Tutone in the hit song “8675309/Jenny” is on sale on eBay, and current owner Spencer Potter is looking forward to the end of an era.

He says, “We had a great run. It’s more than a number, it’s one of the last remnants of ’80s culture other than the mullet, and I embraced it.”

Potter warns the next owner of Jenny’s number to be prepared for lots of prank calls from people asking for Jenny or singing the song, and to break a few hearts.

He explains, “People give out this number as a fake number so I’d get guys calling asking for some girl. I’d have to give them the bad news.”

Potter is expecting more than $1 million for the digits, which will make him an instant gold digger magnet.

He jokes, “It’s a good thing I broke up with my girlfriend.”
