LET IT BE KNOWN[edit]

LET IT BE KNOWN THAT TODAY IS 'BILLY MAYS DAY', AND IT SHALL BE CELEBRATED ACROSS THE INTERNET BY TYPING IN ALL CAPS, TO EMULATE THE BOOMING VOICE OF THIS AMAZING MAN. --98.110.200.96 (talk) 23:16, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

At least[edit]

He never touch little kids.--66.229.17.49 (talk) 00:57, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

I'm sure at least he knew how to spell —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.27.37.76 (talk) 19:42, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Cause of Death[edit]

I think he died from internal bleeding within his head. He claimed he had a "Hard head" when he got hit in the head on the plane, but really, he was slowly dying, overnight into the morning.--24.36.113.128 (talk) 06:04, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

He probably died not only from heart disease, but yelling too loud as well. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.64.223.205 (talk) 21:39, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

He will be Missed[edit]

Many people enlighten us for what they do but Billy Mays was very passionate to be a very good pitchman, he knew how to get attention. He was passionate and memorable. Rest In Peace Billy. He will be missed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by CrumpledSheatMedal (talkcontribs) 22:21, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Billy Mays[edit]

Billy Mays was a great man who loved his job and the people he worked with. They were only second to his family, who he had loved and supported throughout his career. He will be missed for his style, his way to make people happy and interested in a product. No one can doubt his incredible ability to take a mediocre product and turn it into a hit. I am exetremly saddened by his death and cannot get it into my mind that he is really gone. He was loved by all, and will continue to be loved for the rest of human history. Billy Mays was and will be the greatest pitchman of all time. -Jason Fox —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.234.41.128 (talk) 06:32, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

THE MOST CHARASMATIC TV SALESMAN[edit]

I TOOK A SORT OF PERVERSE DELIGHT IN BILLY MAYS' COMMERCIALS. THOUGH I USUALLY MUTE COMMERCIALS WHEN I WATCH TELEVISION, I ACTUALLY UNMUTED TO HEAR BILLY, ESPECIALLY IF HE WAS SELLING A NEW PRODUCT. HE WILL BE MISSED, SINCE THERE'S NOW NOTHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO WHEN IT COMES TO COMMERCIALS, VINCE OFFER POSSIBLY EXCEPTED. I HOPE HE'S GOT A NEW ONE IN THE WORKS. 209.30.170.213 (talk) 02:38, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Possible Lawsuit?[edit]

R.I.P. Oxyclean never worked, but at least you made me think it did for a while.

Does anyone smell a lawsuit? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.167.43.234 (talk) 16:03, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
