Can You Hear Me Dying Now?

This report sponsored by Verizon Wireless, leading makers of non-blowing-a-hole-in-your-chest cell phones.
Now that's some opportunistic marketing, ba-by! The man's dead, right? What's done is fucking done. Time to move on with our wireless lives, people. And when the next report comes out debunking that pesky myth that cell phones cause brain cancer, you can bet Verizon will be right there with another insensitive contextual ad smack dab in the middle of the story.
(ad appeared with this story yesterday morning, but was pulled by the afternoon. thanks to Amanda Murphy for the tip and screen grab!)
update: here's an even worse ad attached to the same story. For the Samsung "Blast" cell phone.
