Little Known Facts About Insurance Companies

Thursday, May 12th, 2011 | Uncategorized | No Comments

1) Dead people usually qualify for disability benefits. Anything short of death and they can find a job for you.

2) Apparently insurance companies are in the hardwood flooring business. You can’t watch a basketball game without seeing an insurance logo emblazoned on the court.

3) The Hartford elk is really just two kids in one of those double-guy costumes. It looks more realistic now that they moved the horns to the head instead of the rear-end.

4) The Geico gecko is really just a baby komodo dragon.

5) MetLife’s first cartoon front man was Pigpen, not Snoopy.

6) The CIGNA logo, while apparently representing a benign tree, actually represents a many-headed hydra. Hydra (“water serpent”) is the name of the Lernaean Hydra, a many-headed serpent in Greek mythology. The Hydra had the body of a serpent and many heads (the number of heads deviates from five up to one hundred there are many versions but generally nine is accepted as standard), of which one could never be harmed by any weapon, and if any of the other heads were severed another would grow in its place (in some versions two would grow). Also the stench from the Hydra’s breath was enough to kill man or beast. When it emerged from the swamp it would attack herds of cattle and local villagers, devouring them with its numerous heads. It totally terrorized the vicinity for many years. Nowadays it just emerges when you file a claim, stinks up the place and then starts denying claims.

7) The AFLAC duck moonlights as one of their panel physicians.

8) SunLife is known risk for skin cancer.

9) If you look real close, the Mutual of Omaha Indian is a real sourpuss.
