    I was working with one of my 3rd grade reading groups and the story we were reading had the name Jake in it. One of the boys was trying to figure out the name and finally settled on Jake. Here's what happened when he figured it out:

    Student 1: Oh...like Jake from State Farm.
    Me: Yes, exactly. What are you wearing Jake from State Farm? (this is my favorite commercial and I couldn't resist)
    Student 2: Uh...khakis.
    Student 3: She sounds hideous!
    Student 4: Well, she's a guys, so...
    All: Uncontrollable laughter!!!

    I just found it humorous that they basically round robined this commercial around the table!

    I LOVE these commercials.
    My favorite one is the "six callers ahead of us, Jimmy" because I can mimic that mom's voice perfectly.

    Sometimes if I'm feeling goofy, I call out to my class, "six callers ahead of us, Jimmy" and get the same result as you ... a round robin of all of the commercials ...

    "I don't have State Farm but insurance find me money ... I've got you a dollar."

    That's a keeper. Write that down somewhere so you'll have that to look back on at your retirement party!

    Now there is a State Farm advertisement at the top of my page! Lol! Actually, it's kind of helpful because I have State Farm but moved and need a new agent in my area.

    My favorite is the where "Jesse" is leaving and tells the girl he is "a loner, and loners have to be alone"

    That is the one where it says that "words can hurt".

    Ask your kids to explain what in the commercial shows that "words can hurt". I bet you will get some very funny answers! At least as funny as "Jake, from State Farm". (love that one too)

    My son went as Jake from State Farm for Halloween. A big hit.

    I had "seen" that commercial a million times before I finally actually watched it and got the pun. I felt like a real idiot that it took me so long to get it. :lol:
