WASHINGTON, DC: Local man and notorious weirdo John "The Gneech" Robey today went to court to request a restraining order against a wrapped packet of money with a pair of googly eyes on top, the money he could be saving by switching to GEICO.

In a statement to reporters, The Gneech was quoted, "It wasn't so bad when the Australian gecko was offering me tea and biscuits, and heck, even the caveman was okay once I got used to the smell. But now I always feel like somebody's watching me. Can I have some privacy? I always feel like somebody's watching me! Who is playing tricks on me?" The Gneech then twirled around, kicked his right foot spasmodically into the air and pulled his fedora down over his eyes, adding, "HOO!"

The money Gneech could be saving by switching to GEICO declined to comment.

Geico needs to totally revamp all of its ad campaigns. The gecko was cute once - in that first commercial where he was answering a "wrong number" on the phone. ("Oh, you want Geico, this is Gecko!") The cavemen, same thing. The googly eyes? No way.

Also, they fly a low-flying airplane dragging a banner every time there's a home football game at IU, and the turnaround airspace is apparently right over my neighborhood... so even if I had been a customer, I would have switched companies based on sheer irritation.

The first time I saw the banner plane here in Charlotte, it was flying over I-77, during rush hour after a heavy summer rain storm. I thought "Yeah, great idea, distract drivers with your flying banner."

Actually, the artist credit for the song is Rockwell. MJ only did the chorus. (iirc, as a favor to Rockwell. They were apparently buddies at the time.)

GEICO retaliated by having some woodchucks chuck his wood.

"Could switching to Geico save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance?

...Does The Gneech hate my $^*#*& guts?"

Aw, geez... yeah, of all the ad campaigns Geico has launched, faux-Rod-Serling-guy has got to be the most annoying.

Well I enjoyed the R. Lee Ermey one, but R. Lee makes everything more awesome.

For some bizarre reason, the restroom signs at Katy Mills Mall in Katy, TX have googly eyes on them. (Well, it's not like the decor in the rest of the mall isn't a dozen combined explosions of wacky...)

The first time I saw that, I thought to myself, "This is the men's room you could be saving by switching to Geico."

Oh, we've got one of your sister malls up here, Concord Mills. They have this one ceiling display with all the malls listed and their mileage.
