Billy Mays dies at 50

TV pitchman Billy Mays was found dead in his Tampa home this morning. Early reports are saying he suffered a head injury during a flight landing yesterday which the FAA is saying was his fault for not wearing a seat belt. TMZ reports:

After the flight, Billy told FOX 13 in Tampa that something struck him in the head — here’s Billy’s actual quote:
“All of a sudden as we hit you know it was just the hardest hit, all the things from the ceiling started dropping. It hit me on the head, but I got a hard head.”
We called the FAA for comment, and a spokesperson told us, “The passenger needs to wear a seat belt during landing and he didn’t.”

I wasn’t even going to post about this until a surprising amount of e-mails rolled in. Turns out OxiClean is a more prominent thread in our nation’s tapestry than I realiz- Wait. It gets out hooker blood doesn’t it? Now I get it, and 100 gallons, please.

Rest in Peace, Billy.
