I discovered a novel way of dealing with telephone solicitors.  I once
said, "Thank you for your call.  Please join me in a moment of silence for
world peace."  The caller hung up immediately! :-D

Another tactic I use is to lay the receiver to the side and let the caller
continue with his or her sales pitch--with nobody on the other end!

I now very rarely get telephone solicitations.
