Kill the gecko

Word! The Geico gecko is THE most annoying advertising gimmick of all time. I mean, a loquacious lizard with a cockney accent? Is it supposed to be cool?? My visceral reaction is to squeeze that cartoon reptile with my bare hands until his sickly green life force oozes out all over the sidewalk, while simultaneously kicking in his smarmy face, and then cut out his tongue so he can no longer speak!

Fuck you, Geico Geckogecko — just STMFFU!

Marketers mistakenly believe that annoyance factor = name recognition = higher sales. Well, Geico could offer the highest quality service ever at the lowest price in history…but based on these ads, I would tear my own eyes out before giving them 1 cent.

No, I’m not kidding!

Stop fixing what ain’t broke

Why do U.S. companies continually — compulsively, it seems — “upgrade” products that were just fine the way they were?

I can’t even find a simple well-manufactured alarm clock anymore (I mean one that’s not also a radio, baby monitor, smart phone, ceiling projector, bed shaker, and/or ipod docking station).

For that matter, whatever happened to plain old nylon panties?? If I wanted to wear “bamboo” on my ass, I’d move to Asia and climb a tree. And WTF kind of fabric is “modal?” I’m afraid!!

This is one of the few issues for which I can understand and respect both sides about equally, and don’t have a strong opinion on which way it should go. But I’m really interested to know what you all think. What’s more important — freedom of religion/philosophical beliefs or child welfare? Should a young teen be allowed to make his own medical decisions? How much power should the government have in a case like this?
