    Idf You Had Tv Who Wouldn't -- But Why?

    I hate to hear of anyone's death, but.... I just don't know what to say. I am sure the world of cheap TV ads will go on.

    He Was Awesome.......

    I can't believe he's gone..... This is what Yahoo News had on him just a few minutes ago..... TAMPA, Fla. - Billy Mays, the burly, bearded television pitchman whose boisterous hawking of products such as Orange Glo and OxiClean made him a pop-culture icon, has died. He was 50...

    What the Hell Is Going On?!?

    Seriously, celebrities are dropping like flies this week.  This is so strange.  Billy was only fifty, like Michael.  I wonder who comes next. I'm  going to miss watching that great man dip things in Oxy!

    Billy Mays Dead At 50

    The toxicology tests showed levels of the painkillers hydrocodone, oxycodone and tramadol, as well as anti-anxiety drugs alprazolam and diazepam...and the levels of cocaine found in his system indicated he had used cocaine in the days prior.

    Billy - rest in peace - was such a loud spokesman. He caught your attention in those commercials.

    "Billy Mays Here!!!!!"

    I remember him may he rest in peace, I always thought he was so funny because he always shouted at the top of his voice, I remember watching a show and half falling asleep when all of a sudden this loud voice jostles me wide awake, "BILLY MAYS HERE."
