Wouldn’t it be great if you got paid for having a bad day? Well, in this futuristic comedy you can - just take out a policy with Bad Day Insurance and make a claim the next time your boyfriend cheats on you, under Arsehole Protection. Had a fight with your wife? Got fired? Dropped your lunch and got shat on by a swan?

Today’s payout under our Cluster Fuck Clause will be $687 because, here at Bad Day Insurance, it pays to have a bad day.


Bad Day Insurance reminds us that going through all the ups and the downs of life is what makes us human, and living is the ultimate payout because the alternative really is a Bad Day.
