On a more important note, we've lost one of late night television's (well ... he had broken away from late night and was becoming almost ubiquitous across time zones) ace pitchmen.
Billy Mays, the guy with the jet black hair and beard, who pitched things from the boob tube while YELLING AT YOU LIKE THIS, and the man who gave the world Oxy Clean (among other products), was found dead in his Tampa home this morning by his wife.
Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton did not show at the home, otherwise engaged trying to figure out which white man killed Michael Jackson and how they could extort some money from either the King of bizarre personal behavior's estate, or someone else's.
C'mon. No matter how talented Jackson was, that race-changing, face-changing chameleon was one bizarre puppy ... with a capital B.
Both Mays and MJ (unlike Farrah Fawcett) were 50 years old.
RIP, Billy .... WE KNEW YOU AS WELL AS WE WANTED.
