Goodbye Billy!

Sadly, Billy Mays, the direct marketing powerhouse many of us loved to hate (or at least dislike!), is being laid to rest today in his hometown near Pittsburgh.

* * * * *

"Where are you going after the funeral, Billy?"

"BILLY MAYS HERE, AND I'M GOING UP THERE."


"What do you mean? To Heaven?"

"YES! THE ANGELS ARE HAVING TROUBLE KEEPING THEIR ROBES SPARKLY WHITE, AND OXYCLEAN WILL DO THE JOB. KABOOM!"

"Why are you so sure you're going to Heaven, Billy?"

"BECAUSE HELL ALREADY HAS A PITCHMAN!"

Rest in peace Billy.

I was reading your post before hubby went to work, and he looked over my should because of the photo. He asked what I was reading, told him, "Kim's post". He said, let me read, then he starting laughing and said, "Leave it to Kim!". Thanks for our morning laugh. Appreciate it!
