“I called the Tinnitus hotline earlier, but it just kept ringing”

Tinnitus is a disease that is ringing sound in one’s ears. A pun was posted on Twitter by Graham Perry on October 25, 2009:

“I called the tinnitus hotline but it just kept ringing.”


Wikipedia: Tinnitus
Tinnitus is the hearing of sound when no external sound is present. While often described as a ringing, it may also sound like a clicking, hiss or roaring. Rarely, unclear voices or music are heard. The sound may be soft or loud, low pitched or high pitched and appear to be coming from one ear or both. Most of the time, it comes on gradually. In some people, the sound causes depression or anxiety and can interfere with concentration.
