Time to Make the Funeral Arrangements

Fred the Baker from the Dunkin' Donuts commercials passed away. He lived to 83, so maybe doughnuts aren't so bad for you after all. He retired from the commercials some time ago, before almost every D & D was fitted with a Baskin Robbins and Togo sandwich shop. His famous line would be "Time to make the donuts, and the sundaes, and the Philly cheesesteaks" nowadays, which isn't as catchy. He seemed like a friendly guy in the ads, though he sort of resembled a portly Hitler. Shit, I guess if Adolf Hitler was a little heavier, he could've made a lot of money in the breakfast biz.

Let's not forget he was the Breakstone's Sour Cream guy, too. "Time to make the sour cream" also wasn't catchy, so I think they just relied on his DD cachet.
