Favorite cold-call opening line?

I'm curious to hear what everyone's favorite opening lines are. I'll go first:


"Hey Mr./Mrs. Prospect, I know there are no guarantees in life, but I guarantee I am NOT calling about your car's extended warranty"


Usually gets a good laugh and breaks the ice!

Nothing like getting a good laugh 30 seconds into a call. Love the risk reward here
