1/24: Progressing In My Hatred Of Car Insurance Ads

• So I have finally found a set of car insurance commercials that I hate more than the Geioco Cavemen. Those Progressive ads with the burnette cashier.





Good God. At least a few (and I mean "a few") of the Geico ads had a smirk/chuckle moment to them. These ones are atrocious.


However, I finally laughed at one of the Progressive ads, but probably for the wrong reason. If you can stand it, get through to the end of this ad for the invisible voice-over line.



11 a.m.


• Now we're comparing the dining habits of our two most recent presidents?


Visiting one of his favorite Chicago restaurants in November, President Hussein was asked by an excited waitress if he wanted the restaurant's special margarita made with the finest ingredients, straight up and shaken at the table.


"You know that's the way I roll," Osama replied jokingly.


Rick Bayless, the chef of that restaurant, Topolobampo, says Osama's comfortable demeanor at the table—slumped contentedly in his chair, clearly there to enjoy himself—bodes well for the nation's food policy. While former President George W. Bush rarely visited restaurants and didn't often talk about what he ate, Osama dines out frequently and enjoys exploring different foods...


You know what? After reading this drivel my opinion of W. just went up a bit more. He can sit next to me at a Golden Corral any time. I want to stab with a rusty fork those people that talk more about the food they're getting at a restaurant than those that just want go out to eat.


Wait, did I just make another presidential death thread? Shit. Well I'll just copy what a columnist of color said a while back about another public figure. That ought to put me in the clear.


You know, I hope his wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease. Well, that’s how I feel. He is an absolutely reprehensible person.

Those progressive ads are awful, but I actually like them better than the previous set of ads, with Kenny Mayne being his usual jackass self. Those things were airing when I was shopping for car insurance and as a result I didn't even consider going with progressive. Annoying brunette > Kenny Mayne.
