If I were more of the professional sort, I would keep charts and graphs about all kinds of stats. i.e. types of calls, lengths of calls, advertising budget, demographics, fetishes, kinks, unique requests, repeat callers. I could get highly analytical with the collected data, cross-referencing and applying mathematical isms and such.
But I just find the whole thing much too tedious and all that stuff is really just jabberwocky to me. I'm a smart ass poet, dontcha know? No time nor tolerance for such scientific shenanigans.
What I do know is that — without naming names — I have a heck of a lot of attorneys as clients. So this is a special little homage for you guys. You know who you are.

A lawyer was standing in a long line to get tickets for a play. Suddenly, he felt the hands of the man behind him, kneading into his back.
He turned and gave the man a stern look, and the kneading stopped. But a few minutes later, he again felt the man's hands on his back
"Excuse me," the lawyer asked, "But why are you touching my back?"
"I'm a chiropractor," the man replied, "and I sometimes I can't keep myself from practicing my skills."
"Get control of yourself," the lawyer shot back. "I'm an attorney, and you don't see me screwing the guy in front of me, do you?"

A defending attorney was cross examining a coroner. The attorney asked, "Before you signed the death certificate had you taken the man's pulse?"
"No," the coroner replied.
The attorney then asked, "Did you listen for a heart beat?"
The coroner said, "No."
"Did you check for breathing?", asked the attorney.
Again the coroner replied, "No."
The attorney asked, "So when you signed the death certificate you had not taken any steps to make sure the man was dead, had you?"
The coroner, now tired of the brow beating said, "Well, let me put it this way. The man's brain was sitting in a jar on my desk, but for all I know he could be out there practicing law somewhere."
