There's a Seinfeld skit where he mocks mobile phones, saying that you
can't slam them down like you could with old-fashioned landline
telephones. He pretends to yell angrily into an imaginery cell phone,
then, instead of slamming down the phone, very delicately searches for
and presses the "hang up" button (which makes a *doot* sound).
