A Caveman Can Do It

BtVs/Angel by M.E. and Whedon, Characters and slogans created by Geico Insurance owned by Geico Insurance.

I've had the conversation in my head for ages...
After reading Jinni's 'The Trick's on You' I realized I could post it here and have Lindsey deliver it :)

"Funny, I thought we'd met every lawyer in that place."

"My name's Lindsey McDonald. I'm not in-house," he says, handing them a card. "I've just come here to say that, yes, the slogan is offensive, but you two have no right to be offended by it."

"What are you talking about? My brother and I are clearly 'cavemen', which, I might add, is not a politically correct term, and it was phrased-"

"I completely agree, but you two aren't cavemen. I mean you are non-homo sapiens sapiens, possibly even relics of original genetic material but, well, look at your home. You live in a posh near-penthouse apartment. You're fluent in several languages and you have a well-honed grasp of advanced electronics. You're not cavemen. Get over it."

"Okay... You know I see where you're going here. You're saying the negative stereotype applies to the culture, not our abnormally hirsute appearance."

"Exactly. I mean you two are walking success stories. You smell nice. You're not immensely stupid backwater hicks living in dank rock holes, wallowing in your own filth."

"What did you just call our mom?"
