'''Cthulhu:''' You know, I never really did feel lonely down here. I mean, it's nice enough.

Maybe in a year or two.

** According to Cthulhu, the best drink to go with souls is pink lemonade snapple.


...But in the meantime, he is still trapped at the bottom of the ocean in his city looking for a way to pass the time. His solution? Start a phone-in talkshow in which people can phone him about anything, ranging from secrets of the old ones to farming advice. ''Calls for Cthulhu'' (a pun on ''Literature/TheCallOfCthulhu'', the original Lovecraft story) sees the title character (portrayed by a handpuppet) answering questions from viewers on all sorts of topics and providing advice with varying degrees of helpfulness (in between boasts about his intentions to swallow the souls of his callers- and occasionally he'll swallow the soul of a particularly annoying caller over the phone).

-->'''Travis in Duluth, MN:''' Ah, hi! I was just wondering: how do you pronounce your name?\\
'''Cthulhu:''' What?\\
'''Travis in Duluth, MN:''' Well I was looking it up online, and I found several different pronunciations. I was just wondering...\\
'''Cthulhu:''' Kid, do you have nine tongues?\\
'''Travis in Duluth, MN:''' What?!\\
'''Cthulhu:''' Tongues, kid. Do you have nine of 'em?\\
'''Travis in Duluth, MN:''' Well--\\
'''Cthulhu:''' Is your mouth more than six feet wide?\\
'''Travis in Duluth, MN:''' Well, no.\\
'''Cthulhu:''' Then give it up! It's an alien language; your little skin-flap of a mouth can't handle it. Besides it's more of a mental thing than an actual word, so just...give it up. Next caller! You're on with us again for Calls for... um, me.
