Chris Rock Is Such A Card

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Comedian Chris Rock is doing his best bit to give you a happy, hilarious birthday.

Tina Neidlein is a senior writer behind Hallmark’s new line of birthday and Father’s Day (Jun. 15) cards featuring jokes and sound clips from funnyman Chris Rock.

Neidlein pulled the best bits from Rock’s stand-up specials for the cards, including one which reads: You know what men want? Food, sex, silence, that’s it, and on the inside says: Hope you get all your favorite things today! Happy Birthday!

Rock was Hallmark’s dream comedian for the series, as his humor can crack up kids and silly seniors at the same time.

But don’t worry about pushing the provocative envelope with your relatives.

Neidlein says, “We didn’t use any outwardly controversial material. But some of the sound cards have bleeps. If you’re going to do Chris Rock, you’re going to get some bleeps.”

Birthdays are just the beginning for the “Rockin” cards – Rock’s already recorded Christmas and Valentine’s Day cards.
