People are confused about the new healthcare law — according to a recent Gallup poll, only 40% of Americans support Obamacare, while 55% disapprove of the law. Here are five of the weirdest Obamacare "jokes" that have appeared recently.

1. Don’t get screwed by the government

Find a sugar daddy to screw instead. That's right, this dating site is using Obamacare to expand their clientele. Why do you need to pay any insurance when you have a sugar daddy? According to the dating site, "we have helped thousands of people find their ideal arrangements." Hurry up and find an ideal "sugar partner" so you don't have to pay anything for health insurance. 

2. This will be the day Obamacare dies

In this rendition of the Don McLean hit "American Pie," the words are changed slightly to narrate the failures of Obamacare. Obama drives his very own Chevy around the country to promote the healthcare plan that nobody wants. Production value for this video is top-notch!

3. Fear no more, ponies are covered under the Adorable Care Act!

The Adorable Care Act is better than the Affordable Care Act. While the health and well-being of millions of Americans should be top priority, healthcare for ponies could get bipartisan votes.

4. Watch out for creepy Uncle Sam

The organization that produced this video claims they just want to inform millennials that they can opt-out of Obamacare. Instead, the message they send is that Uncle Sam molests people with medical instruments if they sign up for health insurance through Obamacare. A new low.

5. Have you been on a man-date? Obamacare is full of man-dates!

This ad tries to dissuade young people from enrolling in Obamacare by appealing to college students. The video suggests that Obamacare will triple your premiums (there is no evidence to support this) and change your full-time offer to part-time offer (no evidence to support this either). Young people may in fact qualify for generous subsidies to help alleviate the cost of health insurance because of their relatively low income. Just don't sign up like lemmings.
