Infomercial salesman Billy Mays passed away at 7:45 this morning. Apparently he was in a plane that had a rough landing and was hit over the head with luggage. He brushed it off and said he was fine, but never woke up the next morning.

Read the article here.

Billy Mays was one of the very few celebrities I actually dreamed of meeting someday. I admired him for his ingenuity, and his always positive attitude. It's a horrible shame he's no longer with us.

This is a very sad week indeed. First Ed, then Farah, then Michael, and now Billy.

May they all R.I.P.

WE'LL MISS YOU, BILLY MAYS! NOW WHO'S GOING TO SHOUT AT US ABOUT NEW PRODUCTS?

Do you think he'll get a gig as a Guardian Angel? Usually angels silently whisper, but I can hear Billy now: "WATCH OUT! THAT COULD BE BAD FOR YOU!"

AGREE!!! I am sick of hearing people on tv talk about what a nice guy he was...I'm sorry but nice guys don't irritate the hell out of people on a daily basis! I also don't like the fact that he hawked crap to people that most times didn't live up to what he said it would!

Miss that guy? You've got to be kidding. He was the most annoying person I've ever heard, let alone all the bogus crap he tried to get people to buy. I just hope they ditch all the commercials he made quickly. No one made me reach for the remote faster than him, almost wearing out the channel change buttons.

Couldn't have said it better myself. It would be different if the crap he pitched actually worked. IMHO, He was a willing pawn in legalized scams.

I HEARD THAT IT WASN'T NECESSARILY THE LUGGAGE HITTING HIM OVER THE HEAD THAT KILLED HIM BUT THAT IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN HEART DISEASE AND THAT THE LUGGAGE WAS A COINCIDENCE.

I'm pretty curious about the real cause.

RIP BILLY!

wristslitter you have my sympathies - my mom died after having her aeortic aneurysm (sp?) burst without notice. It's so hard to loose someone so suddenly!
Thanks Ween, I am sorry for your loss as well, good memories eventually surface over time to ease the pain of such a loss. Oh no, I had a human moment, please no one hold that against me..

I am sad to say I thought the same thing when I heard the news. I thought thank goodness maybe I won't have to hear those LOUD annoying commercials anymore. Then I thought how bad it was that I was thinking such a thought. :(

Now they are going to honor him with a pitchman marathon. Oh crap, I think I'm going to rearrange my sock drawer that day! Maybe number and arrange my underwear by date or something. My dad looked at me and said he was dead and somehow an evil smile came to my face. Now I'm going have to call off the hitman and I know I'm not gonna get the deposit back. LOL JK HEH HEH HEH
