Another one bites the dust…..

and isn’t it ironic that he made his living helping Americans do away with dust. This morning, uber-promoter and pitchman Billy Mays was found dead by his wife in their Tampa, FL home. You may not recognize the name, but the face is unmistakable – you’ve definitely seen a commercial with this burly bearded dude pitching OxiClean or Orange Glo. Mays’ death marks the 4th celebrity death of the week, and although he was nowhere near as famous as McMahon, Fawcett, or Jacko, there is literally NO one out there who does what he does and is as recognizable as he is.

Details surrounding Mays’ death are still unknown, but he apparently hit his head yesterday during a turbulent landing aboard a flight – way to go US Airways…..way to kill Billy Mays. Jerks. Now who’s going to pitch household cleaning products to me?

As an added twist, the death of Billy Mays is somewhat strange because just yesterday my friends were telling me that ever since I grew back my beard, I look like him. They have never made this comparison prior years when I’ve let my beard grow, but just happened to do so this weekend. Strange, eh?
