A spokesman for the family of Michael Jackson has revealed that the family is very “upset” over the death of infomercial pitchman Billy Mays. “The rule is supposed to be that celebrity deaths occur in threes, not fours: Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson. End of story. Period. Billy Mays is obviously trying to horn in on the whole ‘famous death thing,’ depriving Mr. Jackson of his rightful place as the crown jewel of the early-summer 2009 death triad… the ‘Kentucky Derby’ of celebrity deaths, if you will.”
The spokesman declined to comment on rumors of a planned lawsuit against the Mays estate.
