More funny insurance ads to start your week


It’s back to business and back to school after the long holiday weekend. We thought that one way to gentle you back into the work week would be to post a few ads from our humor file.

The first is a cute one-minute “ad-nimation” – a clever promotion for certified general accountants in Quebec.

The second is a post from Central Beheer an insurance company located in Apeldoorn, Netherlands, a firm that is renowned for its clever advertisng.

Brief Encounters


We had a good response to our “Dads Changing Diapers” Father’s Day post so as long as fathers are proving a popular topic, we can’t resist these amusing TV ads. Thankfully, we don’t actually know any fathers who do this, but the ads are pretty amusing anyway – it’s a good attention-getting gimmick for the product. Silly fun. For more silly fun, check out our humor archive – much of it related to insurance.

You Had One Job: Funny on-the-job flubs


Mistakes happen in life, even big ones. Insurance can help you with the costly ones.

carrotsWe can’t think of a better site to kick off the work week than “You Had One Job.”  This is a site that documents  on-the-job blunders, flubs and screw-ups. We see photo after photo of poor workmanship – poorly designed products, stairs that lead to nowhere, embarrassing sign typos and mislabeled products. While some are no doubt mistakes, we have to think that many must be passive-aggressive in the “take this job and shove it” genre. We’ve included a sampling of a few of our favorites below – click for more. (And here’s hoping your work week goes better than it did for these hapless workers!)
