So This Is The Man?

Bassett William is his name and he's been the one heard narrating all those Whataburger commercials for the past nine years.  But now the restaurant chain is parting ways with their pitch man. 

The t.v. spots were a trip only because of his deep voice and earnest delivery.  His reverence for the burgers must be what inspired imitations.  One man that I thought lampooned Bassett well was Charlie Hodge of KLBJ.  But sadly, he's gone too, being dismissed from the station early last month.

Happy trails, Whataburger man.  You'll always have a fan in these parts.
