Как покинуть планету

How to Leave the Planet

1. Phone NASA. Their phone number is (713) 483-3111. Explain that it’s very important that you get away as soon as possible.
2. If they do not cooperate, phone any friend you may have in the White House—(202) 456-1414—to have a word on your behalf with the guys at NASA.
3. If you don’t have any friends in the White House, phone the Kremlin (ask the overseas operator for 0107-095-295-9051). They don’t have any friends there either (at least, none to speak of), but they do seem to have a little influence, so you may as well try.
4. If that also fails, phone the Pope for guidance. His telephone number is 011-39-6-6982, and I gather his switchboard is infallible.
5. If all these attempts fail, flag down a passing flying saucer and explain that it’s vitally important you get away before your phone bill arrives.

Я почему-то всегда думал, что звонить это "call", а не "phone"

"To call" - это "вызывать". То есть, "Call NASA" можно перевести как "вызовите по телефону НАСА". А "To Phone" это "звонить по телефону". То есть, "Позвоните в НАСА". На самом деле, два этих глагола очень часто взаимозаменяемы, но не всегда.
