Geico Jacks Up Optimus Prime's Insurance

Insurer Doesn't Offer Decepticon Coverage

By Published on .

Optimus Prime might be a super star and might have saved the human race from enslavement, but Geico's not impressed:

Since becoming a GEICO customer in January of this year, you have reported 131 accidents, requesting reimbursement for repairs necessitated by each one. You have claimed not to be responsible in any of them, usually listing the cause of the accident as either "Sneak attack by Decepticons" or "Unavoidable damage caused by protecting freedom for all sentient beings."

The good news is he's still getting better rates there than with the competition.
