NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

When will our pop cultural icons stop dying??? This is getting ridiculous.

Master infomercial pitchman and Pittsburgh native Billy Mays died this morning. Like Michael Jackson, he was only 50 years old.

Apparently Billy complained that he didn't feel well before going to bed on Saturday evening and, earlier that day, he was hit in the head by some baggage during a rough landing on a Saturday flight to Tampa. Whether or not that played a role in his passing hasn't been determined yet.

Rest in peace, Billy. I'm sure you'll be a very popular guy up in Heaven. Someone has to keep all of those white robes looking shiny and new. Now they won't just be clean - they'll be Oxi-Clean.

I'm not sure I can face another day of the death of the famous and near famous.

Who the hell is Sully going to square off against now? This is sad.

First it was Steve Irwin being offed by a stingray, now Billy Mays by a piece of luggage.

Curse you, Fate. Curse you hard.

But, not so hard that you take notice of me.

I am so bummed about Billy Mays... I seriously thought he was hilarious...his Pitchmen show was really entertaining... If there is a Heaven, surely he is there screaming at all of the Angels and mending their halos...

Shocking, but it looks like Tampa is not implicated in the death of Billy Mays. Whew! Apparently there was no indication that the hard landing at Tampa International Airport had anything to do with his death. I couldn't live with myself if Tampa had something to do with Billy's death.

this was a strange one - didn't have a clue who Billy Mays was until someone pointed him out on TV - that's the dead guy - and I almost fell off my chair.

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
