Milton Brimley? Wilford Burle?

I love to start out the day laughing. Even if I was laughing at myself.

This morning, the radio talk show that I listen to was discussing a list of 100 tv icons. The dj's were discussing how the Fonz could be higher on the list than Bob Barker, and how Kermit the Frog beat out Barbara Walters (wow, there's a visual) Anyway.

So they get to number 30(ish) and the one guy says, "Milton Burle." Now I'm totally thinking, "hmmm...Milton Burle...hmm...." and I get a picture in my mind of who he is. And the ditzy dj pops up with, "is he the diabetes guy?" and I laugh because that's soooo who I pictured. But yeah, that's Wilford Brimley. It kinda sounds the same.
However, they are not similar.

For those of you who need to be schooled...click on their names.

Is it wrong that I don't really know who either of those guys is?

I have NO clue either.

I don't know who Milton Burle is, even with the visual assistance, but I totally know Wilford Brimley from the diabetes commercials.

It always bugs me that he pronounces it "diabetiss."

Wilford used to do the Quaker Oats commercials as well.
