Quick: Duck!

After erstwhile Aflac spoke(something) Gilbert Gottfired was cut loose due to his remarkable insensitivity (much less business acumen), the call went out for a set of replacement vocal chords.

After auditioning well over 12,000 would-be duckmeisters, the worksite insurance behemoth has given the nod to a Minnesota radio sales manager and father of three, 36 year old Daniel McKeague:

"McKeague recorded a 30-second clip at radio station KQRS in Minneapolis, where he works, uploaded it to Aflac's website and later did a more formal video audition.

After learning early Tuesday that he was selected for the gig, McKeague said he's known for doing silly voices."

Gotta love a happy ending.
