    Billy Mays dead at 50

    Just this morning Billy Mays, well known for his role as TV pitchman for products such as OxiClean, Kaboom, and Zorbeez, was found dead at his home in Tampa, Florida, at the age of 50.

    No matter how I or anyone feels about him and his career, hopefully we can agree that it was too soon for him to go. Goodnight, sweet prince...

    Not sure that I ever considered calling Mays "sweet prince"... :scratchchin:

    He was on a Discovery Channel show called Pitchmen that only started airing in April.

    One more to wind up the death by 3's.

    He was annoying to no end and his products didn't work worth squat but a late night tv icon is dead.

    Now I get to watch Sham Wow

    I just said that because that's apparently what others have quoted and I lazily copied it. :whistling: (and yes I'm aware of the reference)

    Now for some terrible humor:
    Hi, Vince here with Death Note!

    His death hurt me more than MJ's death did. q_q

    Yeah. Angry Billy is angry.

    Just look up JaboOodyDubs. Most are meh, but a couple of the Billy Mays ones are great.

    He was good at what he did, and though he could be annoying he was entertaining. I can't believe it, he was just on Conan last week and seemed fine. I'm just glad he was on last week, and not scheduled to be on this week.

    By the way, I would type in all caps or something, but I hate people who do that, so whatever.

    "Wear blue tomorrow in memory of Billy- I didn't come up with this but it made me smile and my dad would surely be honored.about 10 hours ago from UberTwitter "

    I've been hearing rumors that it might've had to do with banging his head after the plane he was on lost its front wheels and jolted around the passengers. So it might or might not have been something that occurred since his appearance.

    Yeah, I wouldn't do it everywhere. Maybe just between friends or something.

    Me too. I have some button-ups around here somewhere...

    Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcet, Michael Jackson, and now this. They say celebs die in threes. Leave it to Billy Mays to throw in one extra COMPLETELY FREE!
