RIP Cal Worthington (1920-2013)

Cal Worthington, a well-known West Coast used-car salesman who appeared all over the place (and early and often) on television commercials during my childhood---and starting several decades before then---died on Sunday while watching a football game. Worthington's jingle was burned into my head for many years, and I still remember it pretty well. I have no idea where his "dog" Spot is buried.

Update (9/10/13): As I have been reminded by many people, "Go see Cal! Go see Cal! Go see Cal!" sounded like "Pussy cow! Pussy cow! Pussy cow!" to so many of us.
