Back at ya, Barry

EE and Mods – I want to apologize up front for the language. I couldn’t figure out a way to hide what it spells and have it make sense. 

Apparently, the actual number is 1-800-318-2596. Because there is no letter assigned to the #1 on a telephone keypad, if you remove the #1 from the phone number, you get the above as reported by Duane Patterson over at HotAir:

Sometimes, you just have to laugh. Yesterday, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius made the MSM blitz by announcing the website, glitches and all, and the national call-in center, which is 1-800-318-2596. Now to make this work, you have to skip the 1, because on a phone keypad, no letters are assigned to the number 1. But spell out the rest, and this is what you get.

1-800-3(F) 8(U) 2(C) 5(K) 9(Y) 6(O).

Tragically, the federal government, with all their power, couldn’t trade the 1 out for another 8 at the end. Then, the President’s true sentiment towards all of you would be much plainer.

Then again, they’ve really never been that subtle, have they?

This same article was cited over at The Daily Caller by Katie McHugh, who pointed out that our illustrious president has a habit of scratching his head or picking his nose or something using his middle finger, giving the appearance of flipping the proverbial bird. I had no idea, did you? I guess you actually have to watch the man when he speaks to have witnessed this. I have NEVER, not once, ever listened to this man willingly because I can’t stand the sound of his voice. I even turn down the volume on the radio if someone plays a clip of him. It’s like fingernails on a chalkboard.

Back to the phone number. Does anyone believe this is just a fluke? C’mon, the websites don’t work and this is the message you get when trying to call and sign up or get information. Can you hear the titters and giggles of the techs who made up this phone number, then requested it from the phone company? I wonder what other cute little missives they have scattered around for clever people to find? What is the matter with these people?

Gaw…them Obama people ain’t got no couth. None at all. Sheesh.
