Struggling to parse this caption.
Discrimination? Companies such as Sheila's Wheels specialise in policies for women because they are different to insurance for men
Is it code for "Says it all really".

I actually object to Sheilas Wheels. not because of what they do or anything but ebcause their adverts are so awful. The three women on that should be locked in a shipping container with the Go Compare guy, whoever thought up the meerkat and the guy who does the "We buy any car dot com" advert rap and pushed off a ship somewhere off Tilbury.

Plus Barry Whatsit from the Cillit Bang ads, and the preposterous woman from the London Mint...

When I am Global Overlord, that fucking meerkat will have it's neck wrung. It will then be inserted into the bulldog and the pair of them inserted into the opera singer.

Everyone else mentioned in the above thread will be on the first unheated railway carriage to the salt mines.

Apropos of all this, the insurance comapny that operates the Sheila's Wheels brand have their offices in Manchester. I walked past them today on the way home from the cinema (True Grit and Paul, since you asked). You can see into their canteen, and there's a freestanding cardboard cutout thing of the three women, with cutout faces, like those seaside photo things with a caption reading "We're All Part of the Magic". I can only imagine that it's a grim and horrifying place to work.

Where anyone who makes a sale will almost certainly ringa bell or similar, to loud applause, and the best seller of the day wears a hat tomorrow.

I once had the misfortune to work for a company like that, with a pointless and totally arbitrary "Employee of the Month" award.

Proof that it's possible to be both a winner and a loser at the same time.

I found myself in an interview for an "Assymetric Marketing" company (that's direct debits, cold calls and leaflets in shopping malls on commission only BTW) before Christmas, where one of the perks of the job was "training days" at conference centres where people from across the country could whoop and cheer whoever had made enough sales to win a day at a sa or whatnot. It sounded like the 'reward' section at the end of an episode of "The Apprentice" made flesh. For that reason, among others, I ran for the hills.

I'm ashamed to say I laughed at a MoneySupermarket advert today that featured Starsky (or is it Hutch, the blond one anyways).

I won't spoil it for you all by saying what happened.

Maybe it was only funny because it was an advert break on the Jeremy Kyle show, a 21st century Bedlam.
