Default RIP Billy Mays

now THIS is a guy who I will miss.
He seemed like he could be my dad, from the way he acted to the way he helped sell might-putty (which the company my dad works for makes).
anyway, he is very well known for all of his info-mercials,
some of these included:
OxiClean,
Orange Glo,
Kaboom,
Engrave It,
Handy Switch,
iCan,
Mighty Mendit,
Mighty Putty (regular) &
Mighty Putty Wood,
Hercules Hook,
AwesomeAuger,
Steam Buddy,
Zorbeez,
Big City Slider Station,
The Ding King,
ESPN 360,
Energize,
Impact Gel Insoles,
Omni DualSaw,
Jupiter Jack,
What Odor?,
Tool Bandit,
SIMONIZ Instant Shine,
SIMONIZ fix it! (regular) &
fix it! PRO,
Gopher,
Samurai Shark,
Grater Plater,
Ragazzi's Pizza, and
Green Now!

Not much is on the news or internet about it yet, but a joke was posted on his wikipedia saying he was found dead strangled by a shamwow, which is obviously untrue. I will post more once they write something on CNN.

That sucks, a lot of people are all weirded out because, and I quote "everybody's dropping dead", people die everyday but I guess it just feels that way because they're high profile.

And aren't shamwows and zorbeez the same thing pretty much? :/

yeah but the shamwow was a rip off of zorbeez which if you ever watched the show Pitchmen you would have seen Billy Mays gets upset over the mention of shamwow...
