Farewell, Mr. Whipple

The Associated Press has reported Dick Wilson, better known as “Mr. Whipple” from the Charmin commercials, has died.

Appearing in commercials from 1964 through 1985, grocer Mr. Whipple would implore his customers, “Please, don’t squeeze the Charmin.” But, of course, not even Mr. Whipple could follow his own directions with the “squeezably soft” bathroom tissue.

Wilson was 91.
