A Rockfordian Was Apparently on The TV Show Catfish
If you've never seen the MTV show Catfish, let me break it down for you real quick.
Catfishing - "to lure someone into a relationship by means of a fictional online persona".
So when they try and research catfishes on the TV show in order to help someone meet their online love, they search a lot of different information. Things that can give them really good leads include reverse image searches as well as searching the phone number.
When they search the phone number they obviously blur and bleep out all of the numbers after the area code. One twitter user noticed something a little familiar when watching an episode the other night.
Check out how it went down -
One of the first things I learned about Rockford was how prideful they are of the '815'... so you have to laugh. I can't say if this person is really from Rockford or not, but either way, go 815!
