    As this been mentioned before in these forums? As I rule I don't care for Geico's pig ads. I was hoping the cop who pulls one over is last seen roasting a pig over a barbeque, lol.

    Anyone else think the one where the woman (with amorous feelings) is on a date with a pig is more in poor taste than it's funny? I'm wondering if some deviate mad man, thought that one up to drive conservatives crazy. I mean, that's what they are thinking, what burn-in-hell idea will liberals think up next? ;)

    Meh. There is no difference between that ad than with Family Guy with Brian dating woman( and has had sex with them) and him wanting to screw Lois.

    I don't quite think having an affair is as comparable as beastiality. :D :p

    Plus, now my best friend is now happily married to his high school sweetheart compared to the miserable marriage he had..... ;)

    I won't argue your feelings about the ad as being in poor taste...that's a matter of personal taste.

    But please explain to me why it would offend conservatives? Are you interpreting the ad as suggesting zoophilia? Is that a bad thing for conservatives?

    Also, how do liberals fit into this scenario. Are you suggesting that liberals are zoophilic? I wasn't aware that sexual interest in animals was related to political philosophy.

    Could you explain the connections, please?

    First of all the comment was said in jest, so don't get your panties in a bunch. :p

    In the mind of conservative, it's liberals who push gay marriage. I can imagine them (conservatives) thinking what's the next perversion to be served up. Here you go, bestiality and although I don't think that is what Geico is pushing, it does not take much addition so see where a scenario like this could head. As Venkman said: "Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, mass hysterial!"

    And Quagmire, I don't like Bryan dating women either, although he is like a furry person. :)

    I suppose Wiley Cayote is a stalking wannabe murderer then eh ?

    It's a stupid commercial that hopes to be funny. I can't see any connection to politics at all. Especially given the roots of the government employees insurance company.

    <disclaimer> I have Geico insurance on my car because I get a better rate due to being ex-military.

    I just checked and my panties are nice and smooth. They were also OK when I wrote the post, which I didn't think indicated bunched panties, but rather a serious question about the connection between perceived zoophilia and political philosophy.

    Sorry if my post had that bunched panties feel to it...

    Better than USAA?

    ----------

    So I take it I did not make the connection of perversions served up in the mind of conservatives? Maybe it's just me and I'm not a conservative. :eek:

    ----------

    Wait... really? :eek:

    I have an in-law who is a pastry/desert chef and he tried out a desert on us, a chocolate cake with red pepper in it. It was kind of good, but nothing I'd crave. No this has nothing to do with bacon, pigs, and/or BBQ... ;)

    Is it actually bestiality if both (of the two different animal species) are sentient?

    Is, for example, the reptilian female character's (Vastra) marriage to the human, Jenny, on Dr. Who a not-so-veiled attempt by the BBC to push the bestiality agenda?

    Even in jest maybe it's a bit over-thought?

    You've got a very good point.

    Minimal thought really. Maybe that's the (my) problem. However, I stand by my dislike of the Geico pig. :)

    That would not be bestiality as much as it would be rishathra.

    Facinating. So then, I assume this means that important pre-coitus questions a prudent person should ask should include "Are you a humanoid?" and "Are you a cop?" (not necessarily in that order?)

    Many advertisers (and more importantly, advertising agencies) would be thrilled to see that you've connected the pig and Geico, you've remembered the campaign well, even if you don't like the ads.

    They're probably even more thrilled that you've decided to talk about it publicly, even going to the lengths to find and embed one of their ads.

    Basically to an advertiser, in many ways famous=infamous. One of the main things advertisers want is to be remembered.

    The main thing I think of when seeing those ads is, "He's no Arnold Ziffel".
