Overheard in IFR Magazine's "On the Air"

Near Boca Raton, Florida, I heard an unknown airplane call, its transmission totally garbled.

Boca Raton Tower:
"Aircraft calling Boca Raton: Unreadable!"

Unknown Airplane:
[Again, totally garbled.]

Boca Raton Tower:
"Aircraft calling Boca Raton: Suggest trying another radio. You sound like Charlie Brown's teacher."
