    Geico commercial

    This commercial just started playing a few days ago on TV. One of my Olde English Bulldogges, who has been to several Highland Games with me, does not like bagpipes. This advert drives her crazy!

    I've piped in some odd places, but never under a kitchen sink!

    No, but I would assume that your plumber has, or your kitchen must be flooded.

    Why didn't I think of that

    After the first two similar commercials, (one mentioning a "clogging" problem and the other the neighbors "fencing,") I asked my wife what else we might suggest as a double entendre that would fit the theme of these ads. We came up with nothing and now piping seems so obvious especially given our affinity for all things Scottish.
    Still thinking.

    Cheers,

    David

    Wouldn't what the piper is doing be called 'kitchen piping'? <ducks for cover>
