2 Snow cap Geicos with all accesories and cage


Well, here we go again!. My 6 year old has decided to stop playing and holding her geico’s. We have had them for a couple years and they are both great. You can hold both of them with no issues. One of the geicos needs to be hand fed with tweezers. He a little dumb! LOL The other is a great feeder and hunter and no issues. They both eat crickets. WE buy 24 of the every couple weeks for like $3.50. Other than that very easy to care for.

You’ll get cage and everything in it and any criskets we have left.

Small rehoming fee of $20.00 for everything.

You know these kids these days. You give them a couple of large international insurance companies, and they lose interest after a while and stop playing with them and feeding them. At least this time it’s just these Geicos; last time I had to figure out what to do with two Aflacs. Nobody would take those — something about their voices being really annoying.

Thanks, Ralph!

    We’ve managed to train one of them to talk, although it has a working-class English accent. The one who is a little dumb just says, “Weeeeee!” all the time.

      I thought it was the piggy that said, “Weeeeee!”

      Edit: I really like the Edit feature. I changed the above sentence like 5 times already… and fixed my edit too.

        *stage whisper* It is just a geico in a pig costume. Don’t tell anyone.

    Y’know, maybe you should stop getting your 6 year old insurance companies if she’s not going to play with them. Maybe a nice mortgage company instead.

      Try new Criskets! The high fiber, high protein snack cracker! We’ve taken all of your favorite insects and blended them together, then sweetened them with all natural, organic honey bees! Yes! Criskets are great for making horse doovers<> hors d’oeuvres! Just top your Criskets with peanuts, butter, and some royal jelly! Or if you like sweet meats, top it with a little piece of ass! Folks will talk about your next party for a couple of weeks for like $3.50! They’ll put you in a cage and everything in it and any criskets you have left!

      If you want a snack that’s better than biscuits,
      Open up a box of Honey Bee Criskets!

      Criskets! By Geico!

      Edit: Ooh, something went wrong here.

        It’s going to take a little guy like me forever to fill the cup holder with bird seed. I’d ask One to help but he’s cranky when he’s tired.

    I’d say Lizardy Insurance is the way to go. With Lizardy and Trustice for all!

    He can’t be too dumb if he can use tweezers.

    I’m not above bribing the geicos. Just 15 criskets could save you hundreds of dollars on your car insurance.

    WE buy 24 of the every couple weeks for like $3.50.

    That’s 48 weeks for only $3.50. Can I get a full year or do they only sell weeks in 24 pair lots?

    My 6 year old has decided to stop playing and holding her geico’s.

    Is that like, “My 6 year old has decided to stop playing and holding her maracas.”? (See, I left out the apostrophe.) Is a geico a british version of a french horn? If so, it would explain why the second one is dumb. I mean, who plays more than one french horn at a time? I suppose it might be a british version of some other ethnic instrument, but I don’t know what.

    Aside: I got home from work about 3 a.m. and haven’t been able to get to sleep yet. I did however shave my head so I look more like my avatar. So I apologise for all he blockquotes.

    You can hold both of them with no issues.

    But can you hold both of them with no tissues?

      But you can’t hold them both with no hands.

    There’s a lesson to be learned here. If you’re going to buy your six year old a large international insurance company, don’t be cheap and get a Geico. Don’t make them settle for anything less than a French Prudential.

      [matt] You know, not every body’s a good speller. Sparky has a hard time with simple words like all of the geckos and half of the crickets. There is no way Sparky could handle a compound word like internassional which is a combination of the words intern and assional.[/matt]

    Gee, all these years I’ve been cohabiting with geckos, nobody told me I was supposed to be holding and playing them. I’m not seeing any keys or strings, although between the chirping and the banging their prey against the walls, they make plenty of music all on their own.

    Random thoughts:

    We’re off to see the lizards… Wait — Does Geico sell lizard insurance?
    A ticket, a tasket, some criskets in my basket…
    Sparky buys 24? Fox airs it for free.
    FYI: Live crickets are about $20/1000 online, including shipping. Freeze them, thaw what you need, and save money and time. Sparky, he a little dumb.
    WTF is a Snow Cap Gecko? The species does not appear to exist. Did Sparky misspell “snot”?

    Another random thunking:

    Maybe Sparky would trade the geico’s for some aloxolts. They also eat criskets.
