Mr. Whipple, the closet toilet-paper squeezer, has died.

A lil slow on the uptake here, so I would assume this occurred on Sunday.
Ninety-one-year-old Dick Wilson died of natural causes yesterday at the Motion Picture & Television Fund Hospital in Woodland Hills.

Wilson made more than 500 Charmin commercials, the first airing in 1964 where he was consumed with keeping housewives from squeezing the toilet paper. The campaign ended in 1985, but Wilson went on to play parts in "Bewitched," "Hogan's Heroes" and "The Bob Newhart Show."

RIP Mr. Whipple, and when you look down from your soft two-ply white cloud (oops, wrong toilet paper), know there are generations out there who will never forget "Please don't squeeze the Charmin."
