One of the more amusing observations made so far in the Obamacare debate is about the official phone number that health and human services wants you to call when you're seeking health care.

The phone number for Obamacare's national call center is 1-800-318-2596.

You know how it is when you give out phone numbers, oftentimes you look for words to make it easier for people to remember that phone number.

In the case of 1-800-318-2596, the number 3 that works for an "F." Number 1 isn't assigned any letters. Eight is a "U." There's a couple other letters, they both match up perfectly for what you might imagine.

Then the final two numbers, 9 is "Y," and 6 is "O." I guess in shorthand when you're texting these days that could either be "YO" or "YOU."

So the entire thing becomes 1-800-F----Y0.

Wow! Somebody picked the wrong number for Obamacare.
