The other guy, Sully(sp) comes off as a real ass.
I saw that and in another episode he waved his fee because the guy was out of money trying to get his product to market.

I'll bet none of you know Gail Storm, a "B" movie actress who also died last week. However, she was 89 so I can't see anything odd about her death except that it dcame at a time when so many other celebrities also died.

Gail Storm was also a singer who recorded several oldies (real oldies) such as "Come down from your Ivory Tower." Who can remember that song?

Last night the DC had a show devoted to Billy and he really did seem like a great man. After he made his money it seemed he turned his focus to helping others.

Re: TV Pitchman Billy Mays Dead at 50

Anyone else find it a little strange that they're still using Billy's commercials? I understand why they do it, but I just find it odd.

I am glad we can agree on something in the Parking Lot.

I bet the Awesome Auger is great for mixing huge barrels full of yayo.

Not just cocaine, but apparently Valium, Vicodin, and Xanax in his system as well...that's a lot of pills

I'm a great salesman when I'm on cocaine too. I'm positively avuncular. Not that I take cocaine.

Re: TV Pitchman Billy Mays Dead at 50

They were making fun of him one night and didn't see this.
But my mom told me that on one of those Saturday Night Live shows, it is like him after his death. Doing all of this spraying the dead weeds thing and even saying, even spray me(Billy) over it!
Wonder what the family would say about that?
