We just saw the unfortunate news of Leonard Nimoy’s passing. Of all of the souls we have encountered in our travels, he was the most human.

Last Thursday, February 12, Gary Owens passed away. The legendary voice actor was known for his role as the announcer on Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In,1 as the voice of the titular character of Cartoon Network’s Space Ghost Coast to Coast, and as Powdered Toast Man on Ren & Stimpy, of course.
To honor Gary, grab yourself this 5 pack of Ren & Stimpy socks and throw out all pairs except for Powdered Toast Man.
Socks have a starring roll in the “Static Electricity” episode of Bill Nye the Science Guy.
