Billy (not Willy) Mays who sold us all those WONDERFUL products over the years has passed away almost unnoticed during the "Dying Spell" as we in the South call it, last week at the age of 50.
However, the effect of Billy's passing will have a bigger impact on the public than all those other high-class Flat Liners put together.
The world's economy fell a whole two percent without Billy telling all of us what to buy. Several thousand people will lose their jobs because of the lack of sales of those products.
But the biggest effect on the average consumer is that they will save hundreds of dollars not purchasing the stuff since Billy isn't around to hypnotize us late at night.
And, most important of all, we will not have to keep purchasing TV remotes because of constantly pushing down the volume down when you pass a channel with Billy's loud screams as you flip through the channels.
In fact, this morning the FCC in the US and similar institutions around the world have issued and "ALL CLEAR" to everyone to turn up their TV volumes.
