Everything I Like Causes Cancer

Where we've been convinced to write a new post on Dec. 2. Stay tuned!

The Bed, Bath and Beyond flyer came in the mail yesterday.
I flipped through it immediately because I don't know if I'll have enough time later,
and there he was, Billy Mays, hawking a Big City Slider Station.

Billy, I'm so sorry you had the misfortune to die but mostly I'm sorry that you had the misfortune to die three days after Michael Jackson and no one paid much attention.

But I'm still not buying a Big City Slider Station.

I feel sorry for Farrah and Ed too. As soon as MJ bit the dust *poof* it was like the others never existed at all.

Think the others are all pissed at MJ in heaven? Just picture it for a minute...

"Heeeeeere's the noseless crapface who stole my thunder! You better moonwalk your ass right offa my cloud if you know what's good for ya."

Hee hee hee....

I was more upset about Billy Mays than I was about MJ. I liked his music but not him as a person. After getting hooked on Pitchmen I really liked Billy Mays.

So true!

If I ever turn into the type of person who thinks that a big city slider station is something that I need to make me happy, please come over to my house and run me over in your car.

Afterward, my plan is to seek out Billy Mays in the hereafter and kick him in his heavenly hoo hahs until St. Peter stops laughing and tells me to stop.

Also, condolences to the recently departed's family and what not.

It's like when you're spring cleaning and you find a letter from your dead granny.

I am so sorry we lost Billy, but even more sorry that I can't open up your "have more time later" link.

words...words...words... said...

I'm just kind of surprised that a small, out of context photo of Billy without any accompanying text is considered a selling point in an ad!

Can I interest you in a Carl Malden endorced Rice-a-Roni recipe book?

BeckEye said...

Yes, Billy's death was a big deal in Pittsburgh. I'm assuming. I haven't been home to visit since Easter.

I actually might have to buy one of those slider stations, because my favorite slider place, Sassy's Sliders on the Upper East Side, also died recently. That was the most tragic death of all.

I paid attention. He did yelled a lot in the tv ads. It's kinda hard not to take notice of such a loss.

Cowguy said...

I would have liked to have hung out with Billy... not that that would have ever happened, but just because I would have loved to sit there and we could have yelled KABOOOOOM! at one another for no reason what so ever.

I will tell you this...as sad as Billy's death is, no one is happer than Vince.

You know, the ShamWoW guy.

I've seen more Billy Mays commercianls since his death than I ever did prior to it.

There's nothing like the company you work for taking advantage of your image after you're gone.
