Ur Union of Unemployed

Ur Union of Unemployed:  Ucubed.

Gotta be a hoax, right?  RIGHT?

You lost your job. You're not alone. 31 million Americans face the same challenges. You want your job back. You want your life back. But you can't do it alone. Neither can anyone else. You all need each other. That's what UCubed is here to do: Help you and 31 million other unemployed Americans organize, work together and get back to work. Let UCubed help you connect. Form a cube, and multiply your political and economic power by 6. Then by 36. Eventually, by 31 million. Take Control.

The "Ur" instead of "Your" thing is disturbing.  Unless they mean "Ur," which would actually be pretty cool:  a combining form meaning “earliest, original,” used in words denoting the primal stage of a historical or cultural entity or phenomenon: ur-civilization; urtext.

Form a cube? This is related to that Time Cube guy, right?

31M unemployed? That's 10% of the entire US population. So I guess the unemployment rate is actually closer to 20%??

Actually they mean Ur, the large city-state in the ancient land of Sumer.

Isn't a pyramid the traditional geometric designation for an organization like this?

I think that's the Illuminati.

These idiots are still at it, eh?

Someone sent me a link to them during my two years on unemployment. They just wanted us to send money to an existing union. It's not like we were able to go on strike.
