    OK, so this has been othering me for a long time, and I'm fed up.

    Can someone PLEASE tell me why the Geico gekko suddenly has a cockney accent? What happened? Is it simply that they fired the other actor or is it supposed to be a different gekko altogether?

    At first I thought that he was an imposter and was going to try to take over, but it seems that he's just the Geico gekko...

    Am I the only one that is bothered by this?

    I don't know if you get the Alexander Keiths commercial down there in the U.S. but that Scottish guy that's in them was just charged with possesion of child pornography.

    I suppose his jail mate will have fun using him as piniata.

    yea not a clue what you're talking about, Bace....also, what's Rogers (from another thread)?

    99.1 FM used to be the progressive/alternative radio station here in the Baltimore/Washington area. One of the DJs, Johnny Riggs (who was the best f'in' DJ they had) got busted for possession of coke and kiddie porn...poor bastard.

    I don't think so...haven't heard him since I lived in Baltimore and that was a long time ago. So my guess is no...sorry dude.

    I thought I was just imagining things when the gekko started talking like he was from down under.
