Had to share this. Last week Aflac announced that they fired Gilbert Gottfried from his job as the voice of the Aflac duck after he posted some insensitive Twitter comments about the disaster in Japan. We'll now it seems they're looking for his replacement. They have casting calls going on right now all over the country to find the next Aflac duck voice. Here are a few skills you'll need to have to be the next duck. Not sure if this was meant to be humorous but we found it entertaining.
