Allstate Insurance gets in trouble for joke

Don't ever try to say Allstate Insurance doesn't have a sense of humor. Unfortunately for the company, their humor got it in trouble.

The company issued a news release comparing the accident rates of drivers of different zodiac signs.

Scorpios were said to be the safest drivers and Virgos the most accident prone.

The data Allstate used apparently was real, but its conclusions were meant to be a joke.

The only problem is very few got the punch line. Allstate has apologized.
