Once Is An Accident, Twice Is Coincidence...

...what's it called the 489th time?

Skidmark sends in this delightful story of either breathtaking arrogance or stunning incompetence. I can't decide which...

Need health care coverage? Just dial 1-800-F**KYO to reach Obamacare’s national hotline
Need health insurance? The Obama administration has you covered. Simply dial 1-800-FUCKYO to reach the next available health-care provider.

Far from being a mistype, that’s the official number that Health and Human Services wants Americans to dial when seeking health care. Obamacare’s national call center really did list its number as 1-800-318-2596, helpfully spelling out President Barack Obama’s tendency to blatantly flip the bird in plain view.
Now, to be fair, it's not entirely accurate - the "1" has no corresponding letter, so it's more of an F1UCKYO. Not really a lot better, but in the interest of fairness it's possible that no one thought to ignore the "1"... Honestly, I don't know which scenario worries me more: that there are pranksters in the Obama administration that managed to sneak this through approval, or that they are so freaking clueless that no one thought to run through any of the free checker programs.

Then again, has there ever been a more accurate description of what's really going to happen from a government incentive?

That is all.

I just figger'd the "1" was Obummer's middle finger making itself known.
