The call centre switchboard uses an algorithm to guess how long you are likely to be on hold, and then selects an appropriate length of idea (including annotations) which is read out to you in a synthesised voice. Press 1 to bun, press 2 to bone, press 3 to speak an annotation which will be automatically uploaded to the idea webpage.

*OK it is really, but when I put it as an anno at the end of the Audiobooks on Hold idea, I just imagined the frenzied cries of "if you post this as an idea I will throw buns like a frenzied baked goods importer who has hidden his cocaine smuggling stash inside hollow bread rolls, trying to dispose of the evidence". So to forestall such hyperbole, it is here.
