Man, that stinks, my dad looked like a Mr Clean/George the animal steel hybrid. Seeing Mr. Clean commercials always reminds me of him.

+1 for the headline

When I was a little kid, I thought God looked like the Man from Glad and that Mr. Clean was an archangel. Conversely, I thought that Eugene Levy was possibly Satan.

Sometimes I wonder if my parents should have supervised my television watching a little more closely.

And I always thought Mr. Clean was a cartoon...

-1 to article for not showing pic of him as Mr. Clean.

Boris Yefimov, a celebrated political cartoonist who drew brutally satirical images of the Soviet Union's foes in the service of Josef Stalin, has died. He was 108.

Yefimov's death Wednesday was given wide coverage on Russian state television. No cause was given.


Maybe it had something to do with him being farking 108?!

Haha, and have them say what, "Don't you dare watch that paper towel commercial!"?

I gots to start using the scroll function or change screen size.
I looked at Milt Davis' obit for 2 minutes wondering why subby referred to him as 'Mr. Clean.'

House? Jr.? Someone named their kid "House" and then that kid grew up and named his own kid "House"?

WTF?

No, just the part where they let me watch SCTV when I was so small. I was scared of Eugene Levy for years.

WHen I saw this I got worried that Mr. Clean was actually retiring the character hahahah...I was like NOOOOOOO!

This was obviously greenlit on the strength of the headline.

Golf clap, subby. Made me LOL.

In other news, there is such a thing as a Motion Picture and Television Fund Hospital.
 
2008-10-02 12:54:54 PM  
Wouldn't that be a good use of the ironic tag? Or do I need a fail tag?
 
2008-10-02 01:14:26 PM  
Of course, the only REAL "Mr. Clean" was Bob Tessier^



(Pssst! The bald psycho from "Longest Yard"???)

Senor Clean will take the reins.

Mr. Clean had pneumonia in him.
Mr. Clean has ammonia in it.

I thought the first article was about him. I thought "WTF, he's BLACK?"

Just so my rejected headline isn't wasted:

When the fabled Mr. Clean has had his final minute, Get a shovel - dig a hole - and roll his body in it. Mr. Clean, Mr. Clean
 
2008-10-02 02:39:24 PM  
Mr. Clean is now Mr. Dirt.

I was worried for a minute. One of my professors sophomore year invented the forumula for Mr. Clean, thought he'd died.

Goodnight, Mr. Proper!

I hope this one DIAF. I can't stand his irritating voice, and I am forced to change the channel for every lame commercial he is the spokesman for.
 
2008-10-02 07:36:04 PM  
Don't cry. If he made it to 92, clean living apparently agreed with him.

With Mr Clean dead, what will I wash myself with?

Note, I was implying he Mays have had something to do with Mr. Clean's death? See, I'm subtly trying to frame him? Oh crap. Now you made me go and explain it and it's just not funny any more. Thanks, ass.

BTW - I lived in Casper, Wyoming for nearly 10 years and there's NOTHING improved about it. Unless you consider being made to lick Satan's taint better than licking his sphincter?
