Save Moron Car Insurance

Am I the only one who thinks that Geico's tag line is offensive? Probably. I have honed my ability to find the "that's what she said" (or the "said the actress to the Bishop") type of humor everywhere. It has become a distraction. I can hardly hear a sentence without somehow making some joke of it in my head by linking words or formulating absurd metaphors. Fortunately, with this skill, I have also developed a self imposed censorship firewall that usually works to stifle the most offensive inclinations before I blurt them out.
My point is that when Geico says "fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance." I am left with the idea that they are calling their product insurance for morons. The copy editors at The Martin Agency must have seen that, right? It has bugged me for years, what can I say?

  1. I have had the same complaint for years. I even thought about writing to them to suggest that their sales might go up if they would stop calling it 'Moron Insurance'. Never did it though.

  4. Very true. Some commercials do use tag lines that can make one go crazy when heard for the very first time. Even I saw this one I was also in the same situation and I was wondering that how much saving will be there. But now I am addicted to all these and doesn't care at all.

  5. They either could save you 15%, or they are moron insurance... I'm not sure what I'd need moron insurance for, but it's good to know it's out there.

  6. Worse if people are involved and there are injuries or death then you may even end up in jail. With liability insurance you would receive help from the car insurance company even paying for the attorney's fee during the entire trial period. best cheap car insurance
