  1. Plus she is telling the caller with the bladder emergency to hold it in while she finishes.
    Now, the reason for a bladder emergency hotline is beyond me.

  2. I think everything above is the intended joke. But my other thought is that it is just a regular ’emergency hotline’ and the ‘bladder emergency hotline’ is a Freudian slip type thing.

  3. It’s a play on the word “hold”, which means one thing in regard to a bladder and another thing in regard to a telephone call.

  4. “So… the woman who works the Bladder Emergency Hotline is putting a caller on hold because she has to go to the bathroom??”

    Yes. That is it.

    You think the person is being put on hold for heavy volume calling but it’s really because the woman has to go to the bathroom.

    “It’s a play on the word “hold”, which means one thing in regard to a bladder and another thing in regard to a telephone call.”

    That could work too. Actually, I suspect that was unintentional but it does make it funnier.

  5. Now if this were a 1930’s animated cartoon, she would answer the phone “Bladder Emergency Hotline” and strange noises would come out of the earpiece, so she’d hold the receiver in front of her face to stare into the earpiece and a stream of water would suddenly hit her in the eye.

  6. I think someone misunderstood. The Bladder Emergency Hotline is a line to call someone who has a bladder emergency, not to get help with one.

    Wow, that woman’s shoes don’t match her already-terrible clothes.
