You need an extra bit of carrion.

Your list has only 12 people, you need to add another one, which of your alternates you will put on your list?

Unless you say otherwise, in the past the first alternate automatically moves up, no resubmission needed. That's how I did it anyway.

Fuck it -- 2016 has broken me for this game. I've lost all heart for doing the research necessary to make a decent set of picks.

So instead, I'm going to assume that the universe knows how badly it fucked up in 2016, and is going to try and make it up to us this year.

With that in mind, I'm going with a list of the worst pieces of walking fecal matter that popped quickly to mind. Unlike the decent humans and special talents that were lost in 2016, none of these shitstains would be missed for a picosecond. From politically to socially to economically to religiously, these fuckholes have all failed at humaning and the mean average of human decency and intelligence couldn't help but increase without them around.

1. Fuck off, Mike Pence
2. Fuck you, Steven Crowder
3. Fuck you, Milo Yiannopoulos
4. You suck, Richard Spencer
5. You're fucking worthless, Steve Bannon
6. Fuck you, David "Avocado" Wolfe
7. DIAF, Bill O'Reilly
8. Fuck off, you're making the world dumber, Ken Ham
9. Stop trying to be fucking relevant, Tila Tequila
10. Fuck you, Curt Schilling
11. Fuck you, Donald Wildmon
12. Fuck off Chachi, Scott Baio
13. Go fucking fuck yourself, Vani Hari


Clean list:
Mike Pence
Steven Crowder
Milo Yiannopoulos
Richard Spencer
Steve Bannon
David "Avocado" Wolfe
Bill O'Reilly
Ken Ham
Tila Tequila
Curt Schilling
Donald Wildmon
Scott Baio
Vani Hari


("What, no Trump?" Nope. He certainly meets all the criteria, but about the only thing worse than this country than "President Trump" would be "President Pence".)

We could have a new unofficial record/award for the death causing the most alternates to make the main stage rather than remaining as understudies.

Has there been big recent news about Amazing Jonathan? I'm well aware of his heart problems, but I have hardly heard any news in 2 years or so. Did something recent happen?
