    TV pitchman Billy Mays found dead at Florida home

    TV pitchman Billy Mays found dead at Florida home

    TAMPA, Fla. Billy Mays, the burly, bearded television pitchman whose boisterous hawking of products such as Orange Glo and OxiClean made him a pop-culture icon, has died. He was 50.

    Tampa police said Mays was found unresponsive by his wife Sunday morning. A fire rescue crew pronounced him dead at 7:45 a.m.

    So is reaching the age of 50 a dangerous thing lately ? Well my Mom always said that they go in threes: McMahon The Charles Angle Girl Farrah Fawcett, and Billy Mays

    PS Yes I can count I am just ignoring you know who since in my humble opinion he isn't worth counting for anything !!

    What I think is hilarious is that CNN considers this front page news.

    WIth that said:

    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I hope Billy's voice can never be duplicated. He made me wear out my mute button.
