Is the Geico Pig Too Oinking Sexy?

Conservative group One Million Moms says the insurance co. is promoting beastiality. We'll pork to that!

The conservative advocacy group One Million Moms really has a problem with bestiality. Last year the group went after Skittles for this ad in which an actress makes out with a walrus. Now they're taking on GEICO and its adorable new mascot Maxwell, a pig so charming he apparently gets any woman within his general vicinity hot and bothered. 

“Kids are drawn to animals. That’s normal. Animals are cute. That’s why movies have animals that play the lead roles and the main parts,” said Monica Cole, director of One Million Moms. “And it may be over their heads in terms of understanding the meaning behind it, but there’s a big concern when kids are being desensitized to this kind of thing.”

Right. I know if I'd seen one of these ads as a kid I'd be immediately attracted to my Jack Russell Terrier. Thank heavens to groups like the Million Moms for trying to keep this filth off our airwaves. In fact, this isn't the first time that GEICO has drawn the group's ire. 

 “A bridesmaid was flirting with the gecko in a different commercial," says Cole, "so this is just becoming a norm for GEICO it seems.”

As for us, the ad doesn't actually make us want to have sex with an animal. It does, however, make us want to eat a shit-load of bacon.
