Taglines are DUMB: #11.

Do you live in NYC? Then, "you" probably know what it feels like to get repeatedly ass-raped by the huge corporate steel penis of TimeWarner Cable. Just for basic services, "you" are basically immediately out 100 bucks a month. Also, have "you" ever tried to return or pick up a box from them, from their—count 'em—two service offices in Manhattan? And how many times have "you" tried to buy one of their overpriced movies "on demand" on a Saturday night, only to receive the timely "unable to access movie at this time" message.
The Power of Me? No. The power of monopoly. The power of irony.

not only that but it's the power of you that has to do the basic installation to avoid a hefty fee.

"Do you live in NYC?"

No. I exercized the power of you and got out.

(Out, where, among other advantages, basic cable is $40.)

The Power of KY, doesn’t matter where you move, you’re fucked. I got double-teamed by both Qwest and TW.

Ha. TWC is amazingly dumb. Until a few months ago, the opening to the customer service hotline was "Welcome to Time Warner Cable: The place to be." NO.

This tag line isn't dumb: it's very appropriate. I am completely inefficient and expensive. I can't get my act together and don't care about a lot. I'm a bloated and don't like answering the phone.

They've indeed harnessed the power of me.
