John Avery Whitaker is an old man who runs an ice cream shop. Most people call him Whit, mostly because they can't pronounce his name. Whit likes to stand around, mostly doing nothing while watching his two begrudged employees: Connie and Eugene. He likes to make new things, but everything he makes turns out to not work, and if it does work, he dosen't know how to run it! He also had a recent runnin with a company called Novacom. They just wanted to steal his money, so Whit just stopped them with his bare hands and a squeege!
