'One Million Moms' Claim GEICO Pig Is 'Exploiting' Children & the Reason Is Hogwash (VIDEO)

Say What!? 23

geico pigWhoa. As if picking on kindhearted philanthropic Ellen DeGeneres wasn't absurd and pointless enough! Those "One Million Moms" must be more desperate than ever for a scandal, because their latest target is ... oh hell, I'm not even gonna bother setting this one up: It's the GEICO pig. THE GEICO PIG. The non-existent, computer-generated farm animal mascot of an insurance company. You're probably wondering what the One Million Moms could possibly find offensive/threatening about the GEICO pig. I mean, he is kinda sorta creepy, but creepy enough to accuse the ad campaign of exploiting children ... by promoting bestiality?!

Ah, yes. Because in GEICO's new 30-second clip, the pig is on a date. With a human girl. Or, as One Million Moms director Monica Cole describes it:

It was just a pretty sleazy type of commercial because the girl [in the commercial] was really disappointed when she realized they wouldn’t be able to pass the time alone together.

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. 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.

Really? There's a big concern?! As a mom (just one, not one million), I have a hard time believing there's a tiny little crumb of concern about kids being desensitized to ... bestiality. We're not talking about drugs or violence or sex, here, just to clarify: The "big concern" is that our innocent children will fall for the idea that bestiality is cool. Everybody's doing it, Mom!

Hey, but don't take my word for it. There are a million of those other moms, after all. Watch the commercial and decide ...

Do you think the GEICO pig is promoting bestiality?

Oh good Lord. Do they have a problem with the Muppets as well? Because you know, a frog dating a pig, we just can't have that. Smdh.

These women are crazy ass bitches. They find something offensive about EVERYTHING.

I despise this organization.

They just proved how really pointless they are. Bestiality? Really?? Wow. That is one hell of a leap.

How did they come to that conclusion? My daughter sees the pig and says aww he is so cute, I can spell pig to mommy p.i.g. No where does she imagine it leads to bestiality!

My first thought watching that on TV was "ew, that chick is trying to make it with a pig." I don't even know who the million moms are.

I do not agree with this group, because to me they are just a bunch of busy bodies with a lot of time on their hands.

With that being said, I hate the Geico Pig. He annoys the shit out of me.

I guess they're opposed to Beauty and the Beast and The Princess and the Frog, too. Oh, and The Little Mermaid, because Ariel kisses a fish and a crab in that movie. Ridiculous. Some people have way too much free time...

TURN OFF YOUR DAMN TV IF YOU DON'T WANT YOUR KIDS WATCHING THIS STUFF.

Exactly...my brother had a crush on Ariel, The Little Mermaid when we were kids and he does, nor has he ever, had the urge to have sexual relationships with sea life. Why can't these self-righteous moms worry about their own brood (God, seriously help them) and leave the rest of us free-thinking moms out of it?
