Default Aflac duck will be getting a voice change

Gilbert Gottfried got fired by Aflac after posting lots of pretty crude jokes about the Japanese and their recent tsunami tragedy.

He's been the crazy screaming "voice-over" guy for many years, his bread and butter lately has been the voice of the Aflac duck. Sometimes you gotta wonder....when someone of a celebrity status doesn't use their head and does stupid things that will usually result in their bread and butter job being taken away. Yeah he won't die a poor man...but still, think about your career dude!

Didn't take very long to find a list (via Google) of at least 10 of the jokes...wow! I'm all for some good crude jokes, but he posted some pretty crude 'n rude ones.
The goal of life is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "Holy ****! What a ride!"

It just goes to show that Humans can be the stupidest animals on the planet, lol.
If you're not idealistic in you're 20's, shame on you. If you're still idealistic in you're 40's, shame on you.

I saw blogs with " that's the kharma payback for Pearl Harbor" crap. Just shows that there is no consideration nor sensitivity anymore. Charlie Sheen seems to be more important nowadays, then a catastrophy with thousands of human beings dead. I don't get some people.

He did the Oscars or Emmy's or some big award show a few years back. Needles to say, he was never invited back. I thought he was funny as **** .. embarassing the hell out of everybody with his sick jokes.

I dont' get it. Hire arguably the most annoying person on the planet to be annoying, and then fire him for being annoying.

What did they expect?

Who's next in line? Charlie Sheen's pretty annoying.
