I'm rerunning most of my list from last year. What can I say, I'm a traditionalist. And lazy.

Prince Philip (6/10/21) - Consort of Queen Elizabeth II with chronic foot-in-mouth disease
Bob Dole (7/22/23) - Aged politician who's only trotted out for big Republican events like conventions and funerals to class the joint up a little
Elizabeth II (4/21/26) - by the Grace of God and Genetics, of Great Britain, Ireland and the British Dominions beyond the Seas, Queen, Defender of the Faith
Thich Nhat Hanh (10/11/26) - Buddhist monk and author who, having suffered a stroke a couple of years ago, has returned home to Vietnam after several decades in exile overseas
Harry Belafonte (3/1/27) - Calypso crooner who was the first to get "The Banana Boat Song" stuck in your head. You're hearing it now, aren't you? Sorry.
Sandra Day O'Connor (3/26/30) - Former Supreme Court Justice with Alzheimer's
Warren Buffett (8/30/30) - Famous rich guy
Caroll Spinney (12/26/33) - The original Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch
Bill Cosby (7/12/37) - Squanderer of goodwill
Ric Flair (2/25/49) - Former wrestler and WOO! enthusiast
Paul Manafort (4/1/49) - Traitor and bad suit enthusiast
Michael Flynn (12/5/58) - Chatty traitor
Macaulay Culkin (8/26/80) - Actor who peaked at 13

Alternates
Donald Trump (6/14/46) - <heavy sigh>
William Perry (12/16/62) - former football player of "Refrigerator" fame

I think the last few days of December are going to be busy. Only 24 entries so far. Jimmy Carter has 7 picks and seems to have taken GHW Bush's lead. Bless his heart!

I don't think I've ever had anyone of my picks die during the year. Repeated wholesale failures caused me to stay away from the 2018 Pool but I decided I'm just going to keep using my previous list until some of them just fucking die already (no, none of them died this year either).

Loretta Lynn (coalminer's daughter)
Charlie Daniels (made a deal with the devil)
Tommy Chong (stoner)
Jimmy Carter (nuclear peanut farmer and construction worker)
Donald Trump (con man)
Henry Kissinger (jackass)
Sandy Koufax (southpaw)
Curly Neal (#22)
Bobby Bowden (Puntrooskie caller)
Buzz Aldrin (original moonwalker)
Clint Eastwood (chairtalker)
Fred Silverman (former TV exec)
Ron Popeil (legendary inventor & marketing genius)

Alternates

Al Jaffee (very unserious guy)
Bill Cosby (rapist)
Regis Philbin (professionally inoffensive host)

Also, I'm pretty sure Rule #1 has a typo, or else this is gonna be the toughest SDMB Celebrity Death Pool yet!

You should do a clean list, without commentary, lest the Death Mistress give you the stink eye and curse your loins.

Sorry, yourself! It's one of those songs I occasionally hear about, but never actually hear, AFAIK. So your earworm powers have no effect on me.

When I cleaned up my list, it seems that somehow Tommy Chong got deleted; he should still be there.

Another thanks for the heads-up, this time to our esteemed Death Mistress Baker.

Perhaps, and I'll admit the words look familiar. But they aren't bringing any music to my mind. Nyaah, nyaah!

This stuff happens to me. I literally just heard "Danny Boy" for the first time in my life, just in the past few weeks. I'd been hearing references to the song since childhood. But the tune, and the lyrics other than the title, where totally new to me.

It happens to me too. I didn't know the name of the "day-o song" until I Googled it. If it weren't for the internet I still wouldn't know the name of that freakin' earworm.
