Preparing for the next celebrity death and a plea

Lord, in thy endless wisdom and crushing wrath, thou hast chosen to return to thy bosom many of thy children whom we have known and loved in the warm glow of the cathode ray tube and the crackling embrace of the hifi.  That thou should returneth to us MJ, Farrah Fawcett, Ed McMahon and Billy Mays we dare not ask in fear of offending thy encompassing plan.

Leave unto us, o Lord, your jollificating servant <name>; <he/she> hath amused us enormously in <television programs/songs/media shenanigans> and we hope that thou wilt leave unto us a precious few more years of VH1 specials, desperate comeback tours and minor scandals.  In Jesus’s name we pray, Amen.
