An imaginary phone, whose futile hope, is to alert the terminally oblivious to reality.

This put down probably unintentionally originated in 1973 with the forerunner of Wheel of Fortune, Shopper's Bazaar. A player could pick up the clue phone in front of them to hear whether the puzzle was a person, place or thing.
Someone needs to pick up the clue phone.

Ask not for whom the clue phone rings, it rings for thee.

Will (insert politician here) please pick up the white courtesy clue phone.
