Billy Mays

Of the all the celebrity deaths in the last couple weeks, Billy Mays is the one I am most sad about. I never met the man even though he lived in the Tampa Bay area, but he seemed like a classy guy. By all accounts, he took a talent, turned it into a career he loved and was able to support his family. He never pitched a product he didn't believe in. Most of all he didn't take himself or his celebrity status too seriously. Whether you laughed at him or with him, he seemed to know the he wasn't curing cancer or exploring the universe, but he made people happy. I think in the end most of us laughed with him. The world will be a dirtier place without him.

Yes or No

1. You can ONLY answer Yes or No.

2. You are NOT ALLOWED to explain ANYTHING unless someone messages or comments you and asks -- and believe me, the temptation to explain some of these will be overwhelming nothing is exactly as it seems.
