    I think most people here are too young to remember him. :(

    I guess it might be an American thing also.

    I guess they don't remember "Where's the beef?"

    "Plop, plop, fizz, fizz, oh what a relief it is"

    "Mama mia, that's one spicy meatball!"

    I think there should be some people for whom there should be in place a Do Not Announce Passing policy.
    For example Gilligan doesn't die!!!!!~!
    MR ROGERS doesn't die!~ This is a physics hangout. Would someone do the math on this a give them a special send-off that does not require the word death.
    Pardon me I have to go to work now in hospice. {shakes head} surely things have to be adjusted here.

    Well, I'm glad it's that they're too young and not that we're too old. :biggrin:

    Wilson is certainly an icon of Americana.

    If only more guys were as 'sqeezable' as Mr. Whipple! :biggrin:

    "Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun."

    "I can't beleive I ate the whole thing" [which they just made again with the original actors!]

    btw, I know how to make Jack's secret sauce. Ssssshhhhhhhhh.

    Mr. Whipple did reach icon status - the ultimate achievement for a pitchman. RIP Mr. Whipple.
