    By the way, the 9:11 thing was when the news was posted, not when he died.

    YES! Now infomercials will actually be worth watching! This week is just getting better and better. Maybe that red head from CSI Miami with the shitty sunglasses will die. Or Carrot Top. Preferably Carrot Top because CSI Miami is okay if you just ignore the leprechaun.

    Wow I feel horrible for saying that but they're all so annoying.

    Well, I mean, Billy Mays isn't THAT annoying. It's hilarious watching his commercials. So much enthusiasm lol. It's a shame though :/

    The real question is: Who will now do the OxiClean infomercials? I loved those honestly..so entertaining.

    On an even more serious note, its hard to see him go. First it was Michael Jackson, now its Billy Mays. Next it's going to be Michael Jordan and Bob Saget. [​IMG]

    My brother told me this just as I walked in the door and was like "Hi! BILLY MAYS HERE!"

    He was like "Dude, he just died." I was like "What the fuck!? No, I don't believe you." Then I saw the page...

    Fuck.

    RIP Mr. Mays

    Shit, there's go my day.

    I actually liked Billy. Pitchmen was a great show. Seriously, why do all these people start dying? He had a wife and kids, too. How sad.

    Is it weird that I found myself more depressed over this than Michael Jackson?

    May OxiClean be with you, Billy Mays.
