Default Buy our health insurance, plan your death?

A promotion as an insert in the local newspaper today. Choose your doctor, choose your hospital and get free funeral planning as a bonus for attending our limited seating seminar. I have no idea of the merit or lack thereof of the program being presented but the juxtaposition of buy our healthcare and get going on your funeral planning seemed unfortunate.

Sounds like the company is not very confident of the effectiveness of their healthcare if they need to include funeral planning in their pitch to sell.

Hi blueash,

This sounds like one of those things that gets sent to Jay Leno.

Those all-too-real, unfortunately worded ads and headlines that Leno reads can make me laugh so hard that sometimes I end up collapsed in a heap.

This takes "get sick and we'll drop you" to a new low, i.e, get sick and we'll drop you six feet under. :evil6
