  • OH GOD NO!!!! ANOTHER KING IS DEAD TODAY!!!

    Billy Mays King of the Infomercial

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,529328,00.html

    Television pitchman Billy Mays — who built his fame by appearing on commercials and infomercials promoting household products and gadgets — died Sunday.

    Mays, 50, was found unresponsive by his wife inside his Tampa, Fla., home at 7:45 a.m. on Sunday, according to the Tampa Police Department.

    I heard about this.

    They are saying it might turn into a lawsuit, because apparently he was on an airplane that landed within 24 hours of his death in Tampa, and a tire blew out on the plane, which caused a very rough landing, and a bunch of luggage and things fell down from above his head and hit him very hard on the head. He complained a lot about how hard he got hit on the head, and then died within 24 hours of that apparently, so they think it may have been a slow hemmoraging that killed him possibly (no autopsy yet). Very sad.

      Maybe an epidural bleed, like Natasha Richardson, Liam Neeson's wife.

        Sure sounds plausible. That's going to be a big lawsuit/settlement.

        What is going to happen to the TV show Pitchmen?

                Note to self:

                1. Don't get an aisle seat.

                2. If #1 fails, cover head with both arms when the airplane lands.

                    This is exactly what I was thinking when I first heard about it.

                      'Tain't funny, McGee! But you do have a point: Vince (Shlomi) the Shamwow Guy (who also does the Slap Chop commercials) will almost certainly become the new king after this. An acquired taste (almost literally) for hookers recently will undoubtedly pave his way to the throne.
