SUNDAY JUNE 28TH, 2009
TAMPA, Fla. - Billy Mays, the burly, bearded television pitchman known for his boisterous hawking of products such as Orange Glo and OxiClean, has died. He was 50.
Tampa police said Mays was found unresponsive by his wife Sunday morning. A fire rescue crew pronounced him dead at 7:45 a.m.
There were no signs of a break-in, and investigators do not suspect foul play. The coroner's office expects to have an autopsy done by Monday afternoon.

As hyper as he was, he must have blown a gasket. Too bad...too young.
Treat me good, I'll treat you better. Treat me bad, I'll treat you worse.
I didn't like the guy until I started watching the "Pitchmen" show. He grew on me. Seemed like a decent guy.
Apparently he had a rough landing on an airline, and wacked his head hard, shrugged it off. Could have caused a subdural hemorrhage, though the media isn't saying yet.
Anyway, too bad, 50 years old.

Billy was kind of a local hero around here. He was frequently on the local radio stations doing interviews. He will be missed. R.I.P. Billy
But where would I keep 2 buses?Adopt a Greyhound. Adopt 2 Greyhounds, they're happier in groups!
I could never watch him for any longer than 2 minutes.
His "unique" constantly yelling high pitched voice was incredibly irritating and it used to grate right on the core of my nerves.
On the bright side he was good practice for my reflexes because as soon as I saw his face I would "draw" the remote and hit the "MUTE" button.
Rough week for celebrities, huh...?
"Who is to say that I am not an instrument of karma? Indeed, who is to say that I am not the very hand of God himself, dispatched by the Almighty to smite the Philistines and hypocrites, to lay low the dishonest and corrupt, and to bust the jawbone of some jackass that so desperately deserves it?"
I sure hope it isn't contagious! I turn 50 real soon and I want to make it at least to 75. I guess the only thing going for me is "I am NOT a celebrity" !
Socialism tries to give the slave all the advantages of his security together with the benefits of freedom, and, in the process, destroys both the free and the enslaved.
