The Irony and the Ecstacy

As I was driving home on Friday, I noticed one of those giant banners in the sky that was towed by a small plane. The plane was towing the banner right along the outerbelt at rush hour. Cars were slowing and swerving while the drivers were trying to see what the banner was advertising. I slowed down to give myself plenty of maneuvering room in case of an accident in front of me, and then I risked a glance at the banner.

It was for Geico.
