RIP Billy Mays

"Billy Mays, a beloved and parodied pitchman who became a pop-culture figure through his commercials for cleaning products like Orange Glo, OxiClean and Kaboom, died Sunday at his home in Tampa, Fla. He was 50."

This comes by way of a friend of a friend/acquaintance: Usually we say that deaths come in 3's...but for a limited time, Billy Mays was offering a fourth passing at no extra charge.

It might be to soon for a joke like that (which, again, wasn't mine), but at least Mays left his mark on our culture. What better testament to your life than for people to speak of you after you pass, right?
