Freak Out Your Friends With Fake Obama VP TXT

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Here’s some low-level fuckery to get you through the afternoon, courtesy of perverse Wonkette Operative “Bobby,” who sends hilarious instructions for sending legitimate-looking TXT announcements from Barack Obama. Who will be the new vice president? Whoever you want, that’s who!

Using Verizon’s website its super easy to send fake VP nominations…

Just make the From and Reply to number 62262.

(You have to put your real number in the Call Back field, but it doesn’t show up in the text.)

… and send a message (to your verizon wireless friends) thanking them for their support and letting them know you have chosen Hillaryt Clinton as your running mate!

Don’t forget to hit the Urgent checkbox!

Thanks Bobby, you really know how to take advantage of excitable Obamatards.

    Here’s Sam Nunn’s big chance.

  • Ken Layne

    [re=64157]AmericanValues[/re]: That’s pretty much how Obama won his Illinois state senate seat!

    So I sent my messages. Barack Obama chose either Sen. Barbara Boxer, or former Vice President Walter Mondale, depending on which message you got.

  • shortsshortsshorts

    Ted Stephens, with a bullet. Too bad my Obamatard friends are also self-loathing intelligible libruls.

  • Too Lazy To Sign In

    “Hi Barack here,

    Just wanted to let you know that my running mate will be…

    Your Mom!”

  • grendel

    It’s gotta be Schwarzenegger … I mean, sure, the Constitution says he can’t be President, but it doesn’t say anything about Veep, does it?

  • obfuscator


    “Always Vote on Black!”

  • Jobbotch

    [re=64180]grendel[/re]: But then, when Hillary poisons Obama, who gets to jump to the front of the line? Pelosi?

    Um, the callback number definitely shows up in the text.

  • theblackdog

    I, Barack Obama, have picked Robin Quivers to be my candidate for Vice President.

    I just texted Rep. Dr. Ron Paul. He shares our campaign’s opposition to the war in Iraq.

  • Monkey

    OMFG! Now my entire afternoon is shot! Cancel all meetings! This is so much fun.

  • masterofzen

    By the way, the Verizon site works for Verizon numbers only. Try this instead:

  • Liquid

    Oh, please, someone send an “Obama/Cheney” message.
    Then we can talk freak-out…

  • JadedDIssonance

    I told my Obamafreakyfriends it was Paris Hilton…not trying to be too cruel…they make it so easy though!

    Obama/LaRouche ’08

    Obama/Edwards 2008

  • superfecta

    [re=64238]4tehlulz[/re]: That would explain why there have been young LaRouchies outside my train station every day this week. I always assumed they had a lower age limit, but apparently I was mistaken.

  • shortsshortsshorts

    [re=64268]grendel[/re]: 18.
    Thyroid condition. Cancer survivor…

    Probably more reliable than McCain living through the next four years.

  • S.Luggo

    One must decide either to indulge in satire (Obama/Geo. Allen) or to crush the fembotz with false hope (Barry/Hillary). Choices, choices.

  • Cogito Ergo Bibo

    Hmmm. Obama/Kittens? Or Barry/Ice Cream?

    Oh, hell. Barack Obama/Katherine Harris ’08. [Send! Mwuhahahaha.]

  • El Bombastico

    This will help the chances of Rep. Truck Nutz (D-TX) immeasurably.

  • CivicHoliday

    [re=64268]grendel[/re]: Socks has 5 out of 9 lives yet to go. That’s 4.7 more than McCain.
