Freak Out Your Friends With Fake Obama VP TXT

by Ken Layne

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…

https://text.vzw.com/customer_site/jsp/messaging_lo.jsp

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!

-Bobby

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

Obama/Keyes

AmericanValues August 20, 2008 at 2:23 pm

…pleased to announce that hopey has selected John McCain as his running mate and has effectively canceled the election.

Need Drudge’s private email now… eggman@drudgereport.com?

johnbpt August 20, 2008 at 2:27 pm

Here’s Sam Nunn’s big chance.

Ken Layne August 20, 2008 at 2:28 pm

[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.

GIJoeIce August 20, 2008 at 2:30 pm

Obama/Snipes!

shortsshortsshorts August 20, 2008 at 2:30 pm

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

Too Lazy To Sign In August 20, 2008 at 2:30 pm

“Hi Barack here,

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

Your Mom!”

grendel August 20, 2008 at 2:35 pm

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?

Jobbotch August 20, 2008 at 2:47 pm

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

defeatism August 20, 2008 at 2:47 pm

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

theblackdog August 20, 2008 at 2:47 pm

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

BABA BOOEY BABA BOOEY BABA BOOEY!

FunkyPalmettoBug August 20, 2008 at 2:49 pm

There goes my afternoon.

Maybe her?, she’s Phat…

masterofzen August 20, 2008 at 2:51 pm

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

Monkey August 20, 2008 at 2:51 pm

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

masterofzen August 20, 2008 at 2:55 pm

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

Liquid August 20, 2008 at 2:56 pm

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

JadedDIssonance August 20, 2008 at 3:07 pm

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

ronaldpagan August 20, 2008 at 3:10 pm

Obama/Lieberman ’08.

AbeServer August 20, 2008 at 3:14 pm

Obama/Oprah! OO 08! Pass it on.

4tehlulz August 20, 2008 at 3:15 pm

Obama/LaRouche ’08

jinmoom August 20, 2008 at 3:15 pm

[re=64217]masterofzen[/re]:

Those don’t look “official” at all. It says it’s from Txt2day and has some major formatting issues.

JadedDIssonance August 20, 2008 at 3:20 pm

Oh, teh lulz!

The Incomparable Tiny Valdez August 20, 2008 at 3:24 pm

Obama/Yo-Yo Ma

CivicHoliday August 20, 2008 at 3:25 pm

Obama/Socks 08
(I know we can get a harmless Clinton in there SOMEHOW)

grendel August 20, 2008 at 3:31 pm

[re=64260]CivicHoliday[/re]: Socks’ health would become an issue.. How old is Socks anyway?

obfuscator August 20, 2008 at 3:33 pm

Obama/Edwards 2008

superfecta August 20, 2008 at 3:33 pm

[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 August 20, 2008 at 3:34 pm

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

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

S.Luggo August 20, 2008 at 3:36 pm

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 August 20, 2008 at 3:46 pm

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

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

El Bombastico August 20, 2008 at 3:47 pm

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

CivicHoliday August 20, 2008 at 3:48 pm

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

voidifaltered August 20, 2008 at 3:51 pm

Obama/Justin Timberlake

grendel August 20, 2008 at 4:12 pm

[re=64298]CivicHoliday[/re]: Five and a Half Years, Allan! Five and a Half Years!

DieOnTheTurnpike August 20, 2008 at 4:17 pm

MISTAHCOUGHDROP August 22, 2008 at 5:17 pm

MISTAHCOUGHDROP (Google him!) reached in Paris, France was more than pleased to accept the invitation to be Barrack Obama’s running mate. “This is so freaking cool,” says MISTAHCOUGHDROP. “I don’t even have a cell phone! What do I do now?”

Jingo August 23, 2008 at 1:28 am
