Newton: Hello?

Favre: Uhh… is this uhh Cam?

Newton: Why, yes it is. To whom am I speaking?

Favre: Uhh, Cam, this is uhh Brett Favre, former N.. uhh… lemme rephrase that… NFL quarterback.

Newton: Jolly good day, Mr. Favre. And to what extent are you requesting my correspondence?

Favre: Uhh, Cam, there is a uhhh lockout. Don’t know if you know that. That means you’re bein’ “locked out,” so to speak. Might prevent you from gettin’ “unlocked” in the near future.
