Same old

Out of the blue, an ad for Progressive insurance popped up, featuring their corporate face, Flo. And looking at her, it struck me how similar she is to Groucho. For Flo, a frozen smile, painted on eyebrows, stuck-on huge lashes and bright painted lips. For Groucho, painted on eyebrows, a big cigar, and a huge painted on mustache. For both, the desire to create an exaggerated, instantly recognizable image.

What do you think? Agree?
