One has to compliment him on his fame, considering all he ever did (afaik) was to do oxi-clean comercials. A product which I have never actually seen in real life.

Me neither, actually.

I've only ever seen Dr. Clean and Formula 409.

Wish they would get workin' on that Formula 410.

OxiClean sells very well, actually, which is why he became so well-known. He also sold OrangeGlo wood polish, Mighty Putty, and many others. He had a show on Discovery Channel called "Pitchmen". Unlike the ShamWTF guy, he only endorsed and sold products which he tested himself and made sure they worked well. The ShamWTF, on the other hand, it basically a hyped-up towel that was advertised with a heavily cut-and-edited commercial to make it look like it could do things it really can't do. If Billy Mays was selling it, you could be sure it would do its job. (I've never used any of his products, but I've read and heard countless rave reviews. I've never heard anyone say his products didn't work well.)

I personally enjoyed his commercials and his TV show. I think Mays was a pretty divisive figure. Either you hated him and thought he was annoying, or you liked him a lot.

Ubi sweetie, you might want to rethink this entire Aretha Franklin concert, it might get you a little bit too close to fame and we don't want to lose you!

The celebrities who are dropping dead with no warning all seem to be 50 years old (MJ and Billy Mays). I'm pretty sure Aretha is on the far side of that, and I haven't got there yet, so I think we should both be OK.

And Big Bird is 6 and Elmo is 3-1/2. They should be OK too.

Never mind that, watch out for the mad parrot around the forums, who knows what he's transmitting, being around Nef Yoo and all.

Actually, Big Bird is 40, and Elmo is either 37, or 24, depending on nomenclature. :twisted:

Karl Malden
True terror lies in the futility of human existence.

Malcolm Reynolds is my co-pilot.

"The only freedom deserving the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest." - John Stuart Mill

Nah, Big bird is permanently 6. My sister got Elmo's age straight from Elmo. She works for PBS, and Elmo visited one day. She got her picture with him, and told him that she had been wanting to meet him since she started working there over five years ago. Elmo said "But Elmo's only three and a half!"

A couple weeks she got a picture with Josh Groban. Nice perks on that job!

I'll miss him. 97, though. Not fifty.
