How to make answering the phone at work more interesting

The company for which I work, PFGBest, has issued mandate for all employees across the nation regarding answering the phone: the official greeting is now, “PFGBest, this is (Your Name).”

Fine. But nobody specified in which language to answer the phone. Loophole time!

From now on—or at least until somebody catches me—I’m answering the phone thusly:

“PFGOptimus, hic est Ryanus.”

Just in case any Roman Senators call. You never know.
