Billy Mays completes "Dead Celebrity Trifecta"

In a week marked by the mourning of Charlie's favorite Angel, Farrah Fawcett, and the passing of self-proclaimed King of Pop and suspected pederast, Michael Jackson, we now have suffered the death of famed infomercial pitchman Billy Mays.

OxiClean, Kaboom, ESPN 360, among others... the world will not be same without those famous words "Billy Mays here!"



R.I.P. Billy.

i thought MJ was the third in the trifecta if you include Ed McMahon. billy mays has a cult-like following so I don't think you can include him with those other 3 A-Listers.

I agree w/ SBTG. I think Billy Mays is starting the second trifecta.

I'm not going to post a retraction for missing Ed McMahon. Are there 2 celebrties on death watch? SBTG and Rubie, the wives should know. Happy to buy a beer for whomever predicts the correct trifecta starting with Billy Mays.

the b-list trifecta is all ready completed:

Comedian Fred Travalena died Sunday afternoon and TV sitcom pioneer Gale Storm died Saturday.

It's sad that you actually know that. I'll buy you a pity beer next time I'm up in MKE.
