RIP Randy Savage, Who Snapped Into Many a Slim Jim

Macho Man Randy Savage tragically died today in a single-vehicle accident in Florida, reportedly after suffering a heart attack. Savage, who was 58, followed his wrestling career with a successful role as Slim Jim's insanely energetic pitchman in the '90s. For a guy who didn't speak so much as grunt, this was somewhat surprising. ConAgra Foods, which makes Slim Jims, released a statement today that read: "We're saddened by the loss. Randy was a beloved ambassador for the Slim Jim brand for many years and will be greatly missed." See a few of his spots below. Hat tip: @Mediawill.
