Subject: Aww not another popular death...

Written By: PETER on 11/07/05 at 5:15 pm

This morning heard the news of the death of the infomercial-Real estate course 'little person'...Mr. Rice....

He and his brother were recently seen on the Jimmy Kimmel show trying to distract a guy who tried to break the worlds recoord for watching tv without looking away!

Sad to hear he broke his leg and not sure if the death was due to complication?

Even sadder the ABC Radio News report that did the story CALLED HIM A MIDGET!!!!!!!!!!!!

RIP......on a lighter note the box they buried him in was only $5.95 with $1 down ??? ??? ??? ???

Wow, I had it on some channel last night and all I saw were informercials on all night last night with those 2 "little people" who were brothers.  How weird is it that that same guy just happened to die today?  eerie.  While those informercials were on, I kept thinking to myself, "didn't I see them on ripley's before about how they are the longest living set of "little" twins", and I was thinking how lucky they were to be alive

Spoke to soon

Sad to hear of his death.he was definitely not a "midget",that being a special kind of little person,like most of the ones who appeared in "the Wizard of OZ'There aren't very many of people like that now because that particular condition can be treated with hormones,which didn't exist in the early part of the cantury when most of those actors were born.
