Have Questions On Obamacare? Call 1-800-F U-CKYO

Tyler Durden's picture

Presented with a stunned level of WTFness... the Obamacare Help-Line - available 24/7 is 1-800-318-2596 as we have been told a number of times by the President... it seems someone did not do their due diligence on what that telephone number's mnemomic is...

1-800-F U-CKYO

Indeed, Mr. President, 1-800-318-2596 to you too.

Cali should do what Tennessee is doing: They're now offering new, improved free ObamaSmartPhones to entice the FSA to sign up for ObamaCaress (aka frequent & brutal rectal exams):


"Say hello to Obamacare phones.

In Tennessee, those shopping on the new health insurance co-ops could end up with more than just some health insurance. They might even walk away with a free smartphone.

The Nashville Business Journal is reporting that Community Health Alliance, Tennessee’s Obamacare health insurance co-op, is using the prospect of a free phone to encourage folks to enroll:

Community Health Alliance, Tennessee’s health insurance co-op, is running a unique promotional program to drive enrollment in its plans for sale on the exchange: health insurance in exchange for a smartphone.
As part of its Community Health Connection Program, CHA is offering qualified individuals an LG Lucid 2 4G smart phone (or equivalent model), a phone plan and tech support, included as a cost of their health plan benefits. The phone plan includes unlimited talk, unlimited texting and 1.2GB of data.
The idea is to make it easier for providers and patients to stay connected, but it will also help CHA keep track of its member population, many of whom are expected to be new to the health insurance market.
“Members will have the phone number for their CHA representative pre-loaded in their phones and can quickly get answers to questions about their policies,” said CHA Chief Operating Officer Judy Slagle in a news release. “At the same time, we will be able to connect with our members by phone, by email or by text almost instantly with health tips and reminders.”
The co-op received a federal loan of more than $73 million.

Unlimited minutes (for those long, nightly conversations with your doctor). Unlimited texting (just to say "waz up, doctor man, yo?").

Plus 1.2GB of porn surfing data.

All for free, yo!

sort of liked the original version of this article

Tyler was like "ahhhh, fuck! Alright, alright, I'll keep it PC."

I disagree and think it's 10x more funny with the number.

With the way he likes to flip people off, this is certainly not a surprise!  He's a child and a puppet.

Phone companies are WELL aware of what certain number combinations can spell.  There is no way they didn't at least warn them that series of digits was a bad idea.  Or maybe .gov said "give us the cheapest 800 number you got."  And that's what they got.

Except the # thing is all wrong. Other than that, it's funny.

#1 no letters associated with it.

#2 ABC

#3 DEF

#4 GHI

#5 JKL

#6 MNO


#8 TUV


I stopped on the U, and realized this was a ruse. Nice source checking Tyler, or if it is an Onion-esk post, at least announce it.

I guess you didn't notice the space between the f and the u.

El Diablo Burro - Work it out again...SLOWLY (or try actually calling it). It's true.

El Diablo Rojo's picture

Damn it. You’re right. My apologies to the Tyler’s. I will keep my other post up, as a reminder to myself, don’t be so smug.

A refreshingly honest comment.

I think it was intentional

This is all real world edition of SouthPark.

In a few days ITS GONE.

Cyclerider's picture

I picked up my phone and reached the same conclusion.  Nice try.  Too bad it's not true.  The 1 in the number is a problem, since no letters are associated with it.

Is ZeroHedge this sloppy with their financial reporting as well?

onewayticket2's picture

the "1" is the middle finger.

serog's picture

You had to pick up your phone for this?

luckylogger's picture

1 translates into a space- didn't you see the space in the 3 digit number. It is reported right.

Cangaroo.TNT's picture

Look again:



The article shows a 'space' in the '1' location

Nobody For President's picture

You are correct, but you are still gonna get downed a whole bunch.

The number 1 should be in there, and not just a space, even though it reads better - it is just incorrect.

So 1-800-F1UCKYO is STILL a great number!

IDIOCRACY wasn't meant to be a documentary


Best damn comment on ZH since I don't know when.


Idiocracy was funny the first time I watched it. I think I'm gonna try it again.

sunnydays's picture

Is it any wonder that Obama set up a 800-FUCKYO number.  He is always shooting the bird at the American people and the country.  Lots of pictures of him doing it. 


CPL's picture

It's fair, there are two policy options for the health care clients now


  • inch at a time
  • all at once.

Which is distinctly different from the private sector offering.


  • all at once
  • inch at a time.

See.  Completely different.

Dear NSA,

Please inform the IRS that I will be deducting a new keyboard from my tax filing for 2013 due to excessive spewage after seeing this phone number.


BLOTTO's picture

Thats how 'they' work and communicate with each other...with symbolism.


I can understand a newbie saying, "Well thats all just a coincidence" (and it of course may be just that too). However, when the coincidences happen over and over and over again and again, etc...you start to wonder.

And then - it starts to stick out like a sore thumb.


Even in this tiny example of the words 'fuck yo' being spelt out...it has a strong case of being on purpose.

If you type in the TTY number they have posted '889-4325' it = 'TTY - HEAL' - so, is that another coincidence that the word 'heal' is spelt out with numbers for a 'health site'?



CPL's picture

Well, if it gets changed to 1-800-EAT-DICK then we'll know that all the old 800 porno numbers are the only things left in the lease pool of 1-800 numbers.


Confused's picture

There is no doubt this was done on purpose. Hahahahahahaha.


Fuck these guys. Seriously.

Miffed Microbiologist's picture

Actually for the first time in this administration we finally have some absolute honesty. This is why I can't believe it was done on purpose.


Jena's picture

I think it was done on purpose.  The hubris is beginning to catch up to the administration and this is just one of the more entertaining features that most will be willing to attribute to 'accident'. 

Miffed Microbiologist's picture

The problem with this hubris is the people may not forget it when they finally have had enough. The French aristocracy and Louis XVI certainly overflowed in the hubris department. They couldn't fathom their own executions or the Reign of Terror that followed. It's amazing these assholes think history has no application to them. They walk among us with confidence and impunity for now.


Agent P's picture

Definitely done on purpose, but not by the administration.  This is the work of someone at AT&T with a very good sense of humor, who sadly will probably be fired today. 

Miffed Microbiologist's picture

Have to agree. See my comment below.

I called 1-800-FUCK-YOU; and got government pre-recorded message.

Want to throw the bums out? Call 1-800-Armageddon

Bear's picture

 I tried and got  ... "Due to network difficulties your call cannot be completed at this time call back later"

It must be the morons that can't dial 800-F-UCKYO

and how hard to people have to work to pay $100MM in taxes so the govt can syphon off $26MM and slush $73MM out in phones.

This is so awesome! This gov shutdown thing is working well on so many levels... should have been done a long time ago - and hopefully will be shut down for good.
