  • I didn't believe it at first, there are so many joke sites about him being dead, I couldn't find a real news site, with this news.
    It is a bit shocking for so many in such a short time.

  • I'm so sad. :( Especially since we established that it wasn't him who was the anti-christ, but the ShamWOW dude.. :(

    Now no yelling. Just the twitchy dude. *pouts*

    Heck, what a MONTH!

    David Carradine, Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, and now Billy Mays.

    This is screwed up.

  • My husband is going to be upset about this his death. He loved Billy Mays. We always laughed when we saw a new product he was marketing.

  • ..I swear, this all started with the death of Bea Arthur. :\

    This is horrible, but.. Someone posted this on my Facebook:

    "Billy Mays found dead in his home with a ShamWOW stuffed in his mouth. It absorbed his will to live"

  • I bet the ShamWOW guy is going to get so many more job offers now! He will make so much more money then he did before that twice as many women as before are "Gonna love his nuts" just to get closer to that infomercial fortune he is rackin' up! :)

  • It looks like a result of head trauma. A theory of what happened to him based on CNN.com:

    Mays was on the US Airways flight from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Tampa on Saturday that had a hard landing at Tampa International Airport when the plane's front tire blew out. There were no reported injuries on Flight 1241, US Airways told CNN.

    According to a local Tampa TV station, Mays said: "All of a sudden as we hit you know it was just the hardest hit, all the things from the ceiling started dropping. It hit me on the head, but I got a hard head."

  • Obviously, his head wasnt hard enough.

    Poor Billy Mays. I will never be able to look at Oxi Clean again without thinking of him. RIP oh King of Infomercials!
