Wow !, The Celebs are falling like flies.
I never cared for his pitch style, but it's very sad to hear he passed on at such an early age.

I just started really getting into "Pitchmen" on Discovery a few weeks ago, and now this.

This is very sad. I cant believe he passed. I was also getting interested in his show on discovery. Wow, I cant believe the US has lost four celebs in less than a week.

I wonder what the these-things-happen-in-threes crowd will say? Is this the start of a new trilogy or did one of the 4 not count?

As far as Billy Mays, I was not a fan of him but I did appreciate how he didn't take himself too seriously. I saw some parodies that he did that showed he could laugh at himself.

Sad news indeed. 'Pitchmen' on Discovery gives me an appreciation of Billy Mays and his ubiquitousness and thumbs-up marketing approach.

This is the end of civilization. Celebrities are dying!

Forget those starving kids in...wherever....

Don't bother to respond to my sarcasm. I'm going on vacation and won't be reading a darn thing any of you to say about me for two weeks.

Of course, should I happen to die, none of you will care. I'm not a celebrity.

If it makes you feel better I don't consider Billy Mays a celebrite either. I'd care if you died Stone.

Wasn't celebrite a cleaner that Mays sold?

A man dies and you don’t care!

What about the people jumping out the Trade Towers was that funny or what?
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

And you claim to be from a torturous penal island ran by the French, as can be read about in Pappilion, what is your point? I feel bad when anyone dies before there time the statement was I don't consider a commercial performer to be a celebrity. You might but again, we all have different standards. Note that, officially, I found that people jumping from the trade towers was horrible.

Note: I play a game called 'Name That Dead Celebrity', or in the case of Mays 'Name That Dead Kind Of A Celebrity' with the wife where I give clues and she has to guess who died.

Until he died and I saw a news clip about him, frankly, I had no idea who Billy Mays was.

He just did commercials where he yelled at the camera.

He said he hit his head when a plane blew a tire on landing the night before he died, might be the cause.

About 150,000 people die every day. It's tough to care about every single one of 'em.
