jutm543: If they're blurting something out in class, then good, send them to the principal's office, who gives a damn what they're saying.

If you're sending them to the principal for repeating a commercial to each other in the hallways, gas yourself.

Seems simple enough.


Maybe the society you are making will suck.  Maybe we want a society were kids aren't automatons.

Geico is a terrible insurance provider.  All that money for commercials comes from somewhere.

leadmetal: ubermensch: CSB: I dropped my GEICO insurance and went with a more expensive company because I hated those annoying caveman commercials. I haven't regretted that decision once.

And you changed before you found out why GEICO is cheaper.
Car and Driver I think it was used to tell the tales of the evil of GEICO decades ago. Are they still relevant today? Don't know. Won't go with GEICO to find out either.


I once made the mistake of filling out an online estimate form for Geico. I didn't even finish completing the application process, because I was tired of all the hoops they were having me jump through just to get a freaking estimate. That should have been the end of it, but no. Once a week, for the next five years or so, I would get junk mail from Geico, which I would immediately chuck into the circular file. Then, sometime late last year, the Geico junk stopped coming. It certainly took them long enough to figure out that I wasn't interested in their crappy company.

/I've liked some of their commercials, though, but only the first few times I've seen them.

The only middle schooler I know(in the middle of the country) mentioned this trend to me a couple weeks ago so I'm getting a kick...

Apik0r0s: They banned singing of Another Brick in the Wall when I was in middle school. Everybody was singing it, and it led to some sort of doomed Renaissance of self-delusion that culminated in a hundred photocopies of a somewhat violent remake of The Declaration of Independence being spread all over school.

While the school doesn't ban it, my son has a history of line walking and is now forbidden from making any South Park references in class. He's now in middle school. When he was in elementary school, we got a call from his teacher about his Canada Week project. "Incredibly misinformed" I believe were her words. Thanks South Park.


South Park isn't really something elementary school age kids should be watching imo. ymmv

As a middle school teacher, I am severely amused.  I played this video for my students the first Wednesday of the year.  Got some pretty amazing glares from other members of the staff over the next few days/weeks.

When I was in High School the James Bond movie Octopussy came out. You can bet we had a lot of fun with that one, especially in my Journalism class, which was one running laugh fest. (We only put out one small paper a month, so there wasn't a lot of work to be done.) One guy would yell out "OCTO!!" and everybody else would yell out "PUSSY!!".

Our poor teacher was at his wits end trying to keep us quiet and himself out of trouble. Finally he put his foot down and threated to kick the next person who said "Octopussy" off of the newspaper staff.

About a month later the Sean Connery James Bond movie "Never Say Never Again" hit the theaters. Our newspaper's cartoonist did a mockup of the movie poster with our teacher as James Bond under the title "Never Say Octopussy Again."

Some of the stuff we pulled in high school back in the early 80's would have gotten us expelled these days.

Sgygus: The office manager where my spouse works did this yesterday.  Apparently she was trying to improve morale.


Could you eip her phone number?

skullkrusher: that commercial was pretty funny until you've seen it 500 times. Of course, if you've seen a commercial 500 times you should probably watch less TV


It's a GEICO commercial, you could see it 500 times by watching one hour of TV a day through its life cycle.

puckrock2000: Yeah, they'll lose interest in a few weeks, just like with this annoying catchphrase.


You have to give the creators credit though. I'll remember the brand associated with that series or commercials forever. And I don't even drink their beer.

Same with Geico, Allstate, Farmers and to a lesser degree Afflack. Flo (Progressive) is forgettable.

I'd say that insurance companies have some of the most recently memorable commercials.

There are few things better in life than waking up on a Wednesday afternoon (night shifter) and checking out the Hump Day album on The Chive.


Yes indeedy...

I think the humpday commercial is the only Geico commercial I can stand. In fact, I smile when I see it. Just can't help myself.

I want Flo to get hair cancer. I hate her so much.
 
2013-10-04 04:37:13 AM  
I love using 'Guess what day it is! Guess. What. Day. It. Is.' for otherwise mundane events. And replacing someone's name with the 'Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, MIKE, what day is it?' because it's annoying. Life is short. Annoy as many people as possible.

I just ditched Geico a year ago after I had an accident, old guy ran a stop and t boned me. They shot my rates up high and I havent been in an accident or had a ticket in almost 10 years. I ditched em and they have been bugging me ever since to come back, phone calls, letters, emails. Worse than a stalker ex.

This.  My experience with them was so bad that I actually once talked my worst enemy out of going with them.  Funny commercials, though.

I used to work at the GEICO Fredericksburg (VA) office and it is safe to say that most GEICO employees don't use GEICO insurance because of the cost.

I can remember what us boys used to talk about when we huddled up at recess and shared Forbidden Knowledge. It was so malformed that I thought, for a while, that Asian ladies had a different vaginal configuration than others, that a woman could put "the clamp" on a man and kill him and that the Nazis were good guys in WWII because their stuff looked the coolest.

I had no idea what the girls were talking about in their huddle. Still don't. Still don't care.

I have three kids, and he's the only one interested in following 30 minute fart jokes like South Park. So be it.


I suppose as long as they're not shaking the Jew kid up for his Jew gold or nuking their nads in the microwave to make them grow it's okay.

No shiat! Anyone who names their kid 'michael', or even micheal' should be arrested for cruelty, child abuse, and asshatery. In my fourth grade class there was 6 Micheals, Six!!! Having a last name starting w 'W' (another pet peeve), my choices were lame jokes or verbs. Teacher wouldn't let me use my last name. So, I was known as 'Mick' to many parents in my community, as most kids all ready knew my real name, or did so when they called me 'Mick' outta school.

/DON'T name your child 'Michael', unless it's a girl.
