Dear Mr. Prime…

I can’t tell you why I find this letter from Geico to Optimus Prime regarding his insurance policy so funny, but I really, really do.

“Mr. Prime, I am going to remind you again: Your policy with GEICO only reimburses you for accidents that occur while you are engaged in the reasonable use of your truck and trailer. As I told you when you originally purchased the policy, GEICO does not offer Megatron coverage, Starscream coverage, Soundwave coverage, Decepticon coverage, or Energon-blast coverage.”

Dag, man. I’m going to have to remember that.

Speaking of Geico, though…for all you who are familiar with the various commercials currently on the air…the British gecko, and the disgruntled caveman, keep your eye on ABC, because those cavemen are going to be appearing in their own sitcom.

Heaven help us. For all you unfamilliar with the cavemen, or in need of a reminder, here:

The commercial series continues as the caveman takes various steps to have the advertisements removed, and deal with his disappointment at how difficult it is to get any respect.

So, what do you think? A series based on an advertisement: will it a) never even make it on the air, b) make it on, but get cancelled within a week, c) make it, get its times switched around for a few weeks, then fade into cancelled oblivion without anyone noticing, or d) actually be a hit?

I think B, but it really would warm my heart if this somehow overcame all odds and was actually good.

    It won’t be A, because it’s already on the fall schedule, starting in October. But I have yet to hear from anyone who think it will last long.

    The cavemen are only slightly less gross than the Fake Big headed Burger King dude.

    A man thought this up.

    I should know – I live with too many!

    C – Definitly C. It’s just too crazy an idea for you americans not to love it.

    Bossy thinks that Caveman guy has a butter face.

    OMG … seriously the dumbest idea ever, I choose B.
    Yeah, probably was thought up by a man, but I’ll bet it was approved by a woman. I know, I’ve lived with too many.

    Stupid Stupid Stupid!!!!!!

    Another showing of American stupidity, I suppose…

    Wow you guys. The beginnings of a gender battle and now a country bashing all in under ten responses to a post about a television show that deals with neither gender nor nationality. A new record, I think. Let’s stay on topic maybe; I know you guys are better than the rest of the internet idiots out there.

    I’m sure this will be a terrible show if it ever gets made, but I’m still curious as to what the cave women will look like. My guess is they’ll look like a cross between Rosie O’Donnell and Rosie O’Donnell. Because she looks like a cave woman.

    Don’t forget Hillary Clinton!

    I heard a news blurb that it is already being protested because it is offensive which means it will be a hit.

    Oh my gravy, I hope it gets cancelled right away! There is a reason I will never buy Geico insurance–because of it’s incredibly dumb commercials. I about panic if I can’t hit the mute button when they come on, that’s how much I can’t stand them. But I can always come to Say No to Crack and fill my head with better stuff!!!
