First, Farrah, Then Michael, Now Billy Mays is Gone?!

2115.It does not appear to be a hoax: The OxiClean guy, Billy Mays, has joined the list of celebrity casualties this week.

Stop the world, I want to get off. We got this one verified three ways: TMZ, Tampa Bay Online, and MSNBC.

Someone let Vince (the ShamWow Guy) know he's king of the heap now. And who knew that Billy Mays was just as old as Michael Jackson?

Can someone shut off the Celebrity Death Ray now? It's begun to swing wild.

This is, without a doubt, the weirdest week ever.

Let it be known: I got the word of this sad fact from your blog.

Billy Mays is not exactly a hero, but he is -- was, apparently -- interesting.

Yeah, seriously. who saw that coming?

It's kind of like a real surreal footnote on this week. Either that, or Billy just wanted to try and steal the thunder from Michael.

I'm sad that he's gone, but it's not like I'm going to really miss the dude. To me he was one of those famous people who didn't really deserve to be all that famous. But you can't fight fashion can you?

You heard it here first? Wicked! See what keeping an eye on Twitter will get you?
