A humorous and annoying way to answer a phone call. The phrase derives from the movie "Elf," and is often used to keep telemarketers from calling a person's house, although this is not the phrase's only use. A twist between a prank call and an answering machine, the phrase is popular on sites such as MyLifeIsAverage.com.
NOTE: "Buddy the elf" is said as the name of the receiver, not the caller.
*phone rings*
Receiver: Buddy the elf, what's your favorite color?
Telemarketer: Uh...
*Telemarketer hangs up and never calls the house again*

Alternate response:
*phone rings*
Receiver: Buddy the elf, what's your favorite color?
Receiver's friend/Caller: Black.
Receiver: Black isn't a color, it's a shade.
*argument about if black is a color*
