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."
