    Anybody see Chris Rock's assertion that UPS is "hard work" during the Oscars?

    How much did UPS pay, or was it a freebie?
  3. That was free I'm sure.

    Not me.
    I personally despise his asinine opinions wrapped in, "so called", comedy.

    I thought I heard him say that. I have always liked him as a comedian.

    Although I don't agree with everything he says, I've often found his "opinions" refreshing.
    He dares to say things that few of his race would.
    In the end, is a comedian supposed to be taken seriously?

    NAPCAR races rained out and didn't watch the Oscars. I figure that saved me about 7 or 8 hours of wasted tv time today.

    I know Chris grew up in a part of Brooklyn not far from the Foster Ave Facility , he probably knew a few friends that worked in the hub there. Also, his father was a truck driver that delivered newspapers(and at one point, that was a great union job).

    I didn't see the clip, I am hoping it will make its way to u-tube at some point or maybe someone will write an article referencing what he said.

    “I hate when people go on TV and tell you how hard it is do animation. UPS is hard work. Stripping work is hard work. I've done some animation and here's how easy it is. I go into a booth and I go, 'What's the line?' The guy goes, 'It's time to go to the store.' 'It's time to go to the store!' ... And then they give me a million dollars."

    i didn't like his comment about how a black guy gets the animated voice of a zebra or donkey and the white guys get the better "parts". his black/white rhetoric is getting so old.

    he did say he gets a million dollars for his voice though. that's a tough life.
