494 -OR- Squeeze it Once in Memory


First the Marlboro man, then the "Where's the beef?" lady, then the "time to make the doughnuts" guy, and now the "don't squeeze the Charmin" man. These characters are as much a part of our youth as any character we encountered in our lives, in some ways more because we saw them so much more often.

R.I.P. Dick Wilson, AKA "Mr. Whipple." Say "hi" to the "you're soaking in it" lady and let her know we will miss you all.

I was sad about this, Mr. Whipple was my idol...

He only wanted to squeeze the toilet paper before his customers used it....

Dude was a fetish freak of unreal proportions, but at least he was honest with his affinities......

Poor Mr. Whipple. I don't know who'll keep the toilet paper freaks in line now.:)

Hi, Rex.

Guilty as charged. TV is my best friend.

Such a sad day for us, but I bet there's a party in commercial heaven.
