The AFLAC duck was actual a problem with Gilbert Godfrey making jokes about the Japan Tsunami, not 09/11. AFLAC has a huge number of customers in Japan that use their "gap" insurance.



Enjoyed the article, thanks.

An important detail to remember about Gidget the chihahua dog of Taco Bell is that she portrayed a male dog in every commercial she did. Back then most of us were surprised to learn after a while the cute pup was really a she. I've been a chihuahua lover since the early 80's and I know for a fact before Gidget nobody cared about chihuahuas. When I lost my black and white chi in 1999 I got one in Gidget's color. I was devastated when I heard she died. I still have her stuffed animals and even some stickers.

Why do we have to go to Bing for more info on articles like this?  It's such a waste.  Probably just to force us to up Bing's statistics.
