Good Bye Billy Mays

Filed under: Uncategorized — jennifer @ 10:11 AM


Wow, I opened up my Google News link in my browser this morning to clear out the 900+ news articles and the first thing I saw was “TV Pitchman Billy Mays Found Dead at Fla. Home.” Say what?? Of all the people who died this week, I think I was shocked most by this! I find Billy Mays incredibly hilarious and I watch Pitchmen almost every week. There aren’t many details yet – just that no foul play is suspected. Maybe it was the Sham Wow guy.

Everyone (especially celebs), please stop dying.

Ed – it wasn’t that big of a surprise that you died. You were pretty old and sick and it’s just unfortunate that the last thing everyone will remember about you is that your house was being foreclosed on. 

Farrah – again, not a surprise. There was even a TV special about how sick you were. We were just counting down the days

MJ – even though I’m 95% sure that you really are dead, I’m sure you are one of those celebrities that people will see in random places all over the world for years to come (a la Elvis). You were only 50, but I’m not that surprised that you died. You always look pretty frail and I never thought you’d be someone who lives to a ripe old age. Speaking of which…what happened to your good friend, Elizabeth Taylor?? Haven’t seen her in a while… are we sure she’s still alive?

  1. Sad, huh? I even saw him on The Tonight Show with Conan last week (or the week before)…
