Hi. I just recently learned of Willard Scott's passing:

From https://tvline.com/2021/09/04/willard-scott-dies-today-show-weatherman-dead-obituary/ :

Willard Scott, a veteran weatherman who spent 65
years at NBC and 35 as a Today show regular, has
passed away. He was 87.

He was very popular and famous; he was popular and famous when I was a youngster. I remember seeing him on TV. I used to compare him to Al Roker, another popular and famous weatherman.

Scott created Ronald McDonald and portrayed the character in ad campaigns for McDonald's in the 1960's. I knew he portrayed the character, I didn't knew he created him.

I hope Mr. Scott was Saved before he passed.

Looked like he had a long and productive life. He's probably glad to out of this morass we're in now.

@JGoldman10,
basically, it's used to indicate a mess of epic proportions

@JGoldman10,
He also played Bozo the clown prior to being Ronald McDonald.
