It goes without saying that 2020 has been the kind of year to make one want to scream– loudly.

Now, there’s a new hotline, Just Scream, dedicated to helping people get those frustrations out with a scream.

The hotline is very easy to use. There’s nobody at the end of the phone line. Simply call +1-561-567-8431, wait for the beep, give your best scream and hang up.

The screams are recorded and uploaded to their website each day, so you could become scream-famous. When I went to check it out, I couldn’t believe it! There are thousands of screams. It definitely made me laugh.

So, who is behind this marvelous scream invention? According to the Just Scream website, “A teacher, occasional artist, and generally rather quiet person named Chris Gollmar,” is the mastermind to thank.

Go ahead and screeeeeeeeeeeam!
