RIP Billy Mays

The folks at Salon last night had me laughing so hard I was outta breath. I think it was Fairlane, who came up with Billy May's casket polisher: $19.95! I had to do this, then.


  1. You are SOOO going to Hell.

    See ya there, I hear the company's better there :-).

    - Badtux the Laughing Penguin

    PS: Verification word: "unismack" yeah!

  2. How great is that.. I truly feel Billy Mays is LOL right now with this great complement to one of the best pitch men ever...

  3. Haha. Well done!

    (I said a sham-wow works great on caskets, but I think I was gone when that line came up!)

    Wait until Fox News sees this!!!! Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly are going to LOVE this one!!! You are going to be a Right Wing Icon overnight!!!! If there was ever a Parody in good taste over Bill Mays's life work, this is it!!! Bill's life was to do commercials like this one, and this is truly a tribte to him.

    I plan to email Fox News about this. Just think how famous you'll be when they air this on TV!!!

    Even your Trolls will LOVE you!!!

  5. You know, I really think he'd like that. Nice job!

  6. you are a fantastically twisted woman. don't ever change!!!

  7. I'm with BT. You are soooooo going to Hell, but I'll be there to greet you on your arrival.

    So there's that.

    You rock (again)!


  8. With a "Boom", this one disappears over the center field fence, headed towards Iowa :-)

  9. I can't believe I associate with such terrible people.

    I just thank god my soul remains pure as the mountain snow.

  10. Oh, I believe I'm coming out of retirement.

    The world needs more people like me: Chaste, Humble, Tolerant, Understanding, and most of all, Handsome.

  11. Yes Naukishtae and Bubs, I think he'd like it. I certainly made it with no animosity towards him.

    Fairlane - That's why I linked you today, my friend, as a hint.

    Driftglass - Don't you mean KaBoom?

  12. Another "celebrity" who was 50 just died. He had a lot going for him.

    May Billy Mays rest in peace despite some of the negative things people say.
