Default Billy Mays Dead!!!

Say it isn't so! Now THIS hurts me. Who is going to yell at me over the TV at 3am when I get home from work and have nothing to do but watch TV and sit behind the computer. Never thought I would miss him, but now that he is gone, I will. Both he and Jackson were 50... its a CONSPIRACY!!!

3 have already died, which other 2 go with him...

From what I've read, and seen on that pitchmen show he was a likeable guy.

RIP Billy, I will miss him more than MJ.

Wow... Well he will probably have some Oxi-Clean available to get those nasty death-stains out of the carpet.

But the Oxi-Clean can only get the stains on the surface. The stains underneath, that's gonna smell. If only there were a shitty German towel-like product that could solve that conundrum?

You know what... **** THE SHAM WOW!!! Billy had a similar product long before that asshat came around with the Sham Wow, it was called Zorbeez.

However, they will use the Awesome Auger to dig his grave, and it will take 2 years, 205 days, 13 hours, 44 minutes and 46 seconds.

Why do you say that? Everything I've seen he was a hard working guy, and may have been a bit irritating, but I enjoy someone who can irritate like I do. I would have enjoyed going out drinking with him.

Anyone want to make a guess at who goes next? Hate to say it, but you heard it here first. Patrick Swayze and Bob Barker.

I'm thinking that all the companies that Billy ever worked for heard that Michael Jackson's albums are selling out world wide... I smell murder

This is actually kind of sad. Several years ago I began to really dislike him, just because hes so annoying on his pitch commercials... The thing is, its BRILLIANT technique! You remember his damn commercials and the stuff he sells!

Started watching his show on Discovery and really enjoyed it. RIP Billy, Let your son William the III follow in your fathers footsteps!

That type of material has been around since long before anyone heard of Billy Mays. Swimmers & divers have been using those for decades. I had one with a Sammy brand name when I was 7, so they are at least 25 years old.

The real tragedy here is that Vince now occupies the throne atop the infomercial world. We need Ron Popeil to come out of retirement. Save us, Ron!

True, that **** has been completely useless for 25+ years. The thing just pushes water around. Swiping my hand across my car picks up more water than that shammy bullshit.

Pitchmen was a pretty good show. Yeah Billy had a grating personality, but damn it was entertaining. Now who will defend us from Vince?!
