    'Mighty-mend it' seems like a good idea because it's rubbery instead of brittle. It seems really strong when it dries. But it doesn't hold up in the wash.

    I've never tried that oxyclean -- but I will.

    how ironic that the pitch man for Oxyclean dies of an Oxycontin overdose

    that is what bubba is speculating as a result of Billy Mays' failed hip replacements, he allegedly ate them like tic tacs

    Celebrities normally die in 3s, but Billy Mays threw his in for free. God took care of the free shipping and handling.

    His last words were "But wait, there's more!"

    Billy May's was a celeberity

    I thought he was a salesman more than anything else.

    He was a quasi-celebrity. He was famous for making me hit mute whenever his commercials came on.

    Update for anyone interested:

    It appears Billy Mays died from heart disease rather than a head injury caused during a rough aircraft landing just before he died.

    But this is just heartbreaking....and creepy. I feel terrible for his wife.

    All kidding aside, many people in the Tampa area relly thought well of Billy. The claims are that he was a very good neighbor that was always willing to lend a hand, a good family man and a friend to many. Other than his obnoxious voice on the tube, he was a well rounded individual. He'll be missed by many.
