Let it never be said that I’m above taking a cheap shot. (Note to readers: It’s not like people are lining up to claim that I’m above taking a cheap shot. However, the list of things I’m not above includes the self-aggrandizement involved in suggesting that people might line up to claim that I’m above taking a cheap shot.)
That said, I think I’ve solved two of America’s most compelling problems.
I was just listening to a radio retrospective on the career of Bob Dylan, who will turn 70 in a month or two. His music career mostly behind him, he needs something respectable to do in this later stage of his life.
Meanwhile, Aflac is searching for a new voice for their spokesduck. After their recent experience with Gilbert Gottfried, I’m sure they’d love to have someone with a social conscience. (Cheap shot #2 – while typing this I accidentally transposed two letters in Gilbert’s last name and it came out Gottfired. Really. Remember my rule – I don’t make this stuff up.)
Dylan-Aflac. A perfect fit? I think so. And if not, this worth it just for the opportunity to write something that includes the word “spokesduck.” I’m not above that, either.
