Also good one to practice SSIW-ish patterns... (Dw i ddim yn mynd i brynu dim byd!)

Oh yes! Having suffered from persistent cold callers myself, I've had great fun, particularly with international companies who won't know that I'm just some Welshman-who-could-speak-English-if-he-wanted-to. I'm always polite of course - "Wrth gwrs; pwy sy'n siarad, os gwelwch yn dda?" - and to hear their total bewilderment is always a delight! :angel:
