Chad Ochocinco's made some serious noise for posting phone numbers recently -- first he threw his own cell phone number on Twitter (we still haven't gotten a text back, Ocho, ahem) and now the number posted on his cereal (OchocincO's) which is supposed to help children actually sends callers to a phone sex line .
The number (which you should not call) for Feed the Children that's printed on the box of deliciously athletic breakfast food is 1-800-HELP-FTC. However, calling that number will get you fired if you're using your speakerphone. (No, seriously, I called it; if you're in an office and call that number and your phone is on speaker, you're going to be embarrassed at the very least.)
The telephone number that was supposed to be on the cereal box is 1-888 -HELP-FTC. If you want to Feed the Children, that's what you should call.
Ochocinco, for his part, denied any responsibility for the mix-up, and you'd be hard pressed to find someone who thinks he did this on purpose; after all, while shenanigans are his forte and tricking a ton of people into calling a phone sex line is actually a hilarious prank, it's not really Chad's MO to prank people at the expense of starving children.
