Telephone Numbers Are Shorter in Smallville

I cannot believe how much buzz I keep encountering about Booster Gold's appearance on Smallville. There was some interest when Geoff Johns said it was coming last summer.

And now there's Firday's trailer promo (which I posted here) that is literally everywhere.
