RIP Tony the Tiger

Just heard on NPR last night that Thurl Ravenscroft died on Sunday. I always rather enjoyed his voice, which was most famous for shouting "They're Grrrr-eat!" on cereal commercials, but also for singing "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" and participating in a whole slate of cartoon voice-overs, especially in the 60s and 70s.

The world is a little emptier today.
