Cingular: We’re So Union

If you’re a union member, you can get 5% off your Cingular cellphone plan. That’s because Cingular is a unionized wireless company, according to this sub-level of their cingularswitch website.

At left is a snip from the coupon union members present at a Cingular store. Note its curious byplay of both the creepy and the lame.

Reader Stephanie found the pro-union splash page through an ad on Salon, a site read daily by bricklayers, electricians and carpenters.

    What the hell is the logo supposed to be doing to that poor, nonspecifically ethnic bastard? I think it’s sucking his face!

    It’s attempting to plant an embryo in his throat that will gestate for a short period of time, then burst forth from his chest in an orgiastic, bloody parturition (probably right after dinner) and proceed to kill the entire Cingular staff one by one until one brave, female CSR blows it out the goddamn airlock.

    There are white-collar unions, as well. AFGE, for one.
