Wilford Brimley

I can't believe I am actually participating in this challenge. I hope I can make it all the way through. I'm going to need lots of Red Bull. My theme for this challenge is fictional characters including but not limited to cartoons, tv shows, video games, movies, books, etc. Now let's have some fun.

I, PTM, have commandeered the show Inside the Actor's Studio hosted by James Lipton for the A to Z challenge. James is safely being held prisoner until May. He will get plenty of food and water, no need to call the cops. For the month of April, I am renaming his show to Inside the Fictional Character's Studio.

PTM: You are probably all wondering the same thing, "PTM if your theme is fictional characters, why do you have Wilford Brimley on the show today? He is a real person." I will let Wilford answer that question.
Wilford: I am not Wilford Brimley. The real Wilford Brimley died in 2009. I am a an advanced robot created by the Liberty Medical company. 
PTM: Let me guess, he died from Diabetic related issues?
Wilford: Nope, truth is he never had Diabetes. He died while skydiving, both his lungs exploded during the fall.

PTM: That's terrible. Do you know if other companies use robots to sponsor their products?
Wilford: I am not at liberty to say. I could be terminated from giving that information out.

PTM: Come on robot Wilford, just give us one company and one other robot.
Wilford: Ok, Colonial Penn Life Insurance uses a robot of Alex Trebek. He is still alive but he is always so busy that they needed a robot in order to use his likeness.

PTM: See, that wasn't so bad. No harm, no foul. Trebek needs to grow back his mustache.
Wilford: I concur.
Beep Beep Beep 'Self destruct mode activated, Warning, Warning!'

PTM: What the hell is that?
Wilford: Liberty Medical must be monitoring me. They must not like me being here talking about this stuff. They have initiated my self destruct mode. In 30 seconds I will explode.

Wilford: Goodbye cruel world.
Wilford self destructs. Robot parts everywhere.
PTM: Ok, the coast is clear. Wow, the janitor is going to have fun cleaning this mess up. I'm sure Liberty Medical has a whole warehouse of Wilford Brimleys. Let's end the show here before I self destruct. Bye.

Well I for one am glad you survived the explosion. That could have gotten nasty.

I'm sure people for miles around felt the explosion when Wilford hit the ground.

The sad thing is Wilfred looked the same even when he was 35 and was hawking Quaker Oats. I heard there are robots of George Clooney but the machine kept humping Wifred so they had to shut him down

Poor Wilford robot. Trebek is super busy.

I saw a man a while back that looked JUST like him at my local panera....seriously. I have proof.
