You’ll want to replace Betty White in your list.
Michael J Fox
Officer Charley Kingery
Sadly, many holdovers from prior year
Theme: Evil and its Minions (IMHO)
•Donald Trump - orange hued evil incarnate
•Marjorie Taylor Green - can the blue states divorce her?
•Laura Ingraham – spreader of hate speech
•Rudy Giuliani - conspiracy theorist, crooked fixer for Trump, batshit insane
•Tucker Carlson – no end to his evilness
•Brett Kavanaugh - “Sometimes I had too many beers. I liked beer. I still like beer.”
•Ted Cruz – please go back to Cancun – and stay there
•Greg Abbott –per Daily Kos: terrible, horrible, no good, very bad man
•Mitch McConnell - From GQ: “This man has no morals, nor any respect for the rule of law, nor any respect for those who would defy him. For his own personal gain, he permitted Russia to continue manipulating the November election so that his party’s candidate could win—giving us a quivering mound of chili drippings for president.”
•Ron DeSantis – ultimate Florida Man
•Ivanka Kushner - "She [was] not passively complicit in the Trump administration’s policies; she [was] an active architect "
•Kim Jong-un - Supreme Leader of North Korea, and just as deranged as our former Dear Leader
•Vladimir Putin - President of Russia, top puppeteer
•Dick Cheney - throwback to when evil was just heartless, and didn’t include aiding and abetting a pandemic
Marjorie Taylor Green
As I mentioned in the 2021 thread, the peeps born in 1940 that I chose are all still alive and kicking so I’m changing to my favorite singers and musicians. This should ensure another year of health for them.
Alternate (just in case)
Finally watched the Kennedy Center Honors and was inspired to change up my theme to:
Old Talented Babes (who I’ve been entertained by):
Theme: It’s The End of the World As They Know It.
Artists who have been involved in a cover or performance of REM’s It’s The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)
Jon Bon Jovi
Ligabue (Luciano Ligabue)
@Dancer_Flight, thanks for making this themed entry possible!
Recycling lat yerar’s list that scored nothing:
A List About Nothing.
This is a list of people who appeared as themselves (or at least Seinfeldian versions of themselves) on the show about nothing.
Pat Cooper – The great comedian offered to get Jerry into the Friars’ Club.
Jon Voight – The Academy Award-winning actor. Not to be confused with John Voight the periodontist.
Rudy Giuliani – Before he became a Trumpian troll, Giuliani beat Dinkins for the 1993 NYC Mayoral race because he ate right and kept his cholesterol in check.
Keith Hernandez – The original Seinfeld Celebrity pop-in in Season 3, his narcissistic navel-gazing typical of everyone in the Seinfeld universe led to the title of his real-life memoir, “I’m Keith Hernandez”.
Bette Midler – In Seinfeldvania, the Divine Miss M plays catcher for the “Rachelle, Rachelle” softball team and trash talks George. In fact, I could see her doing that in the Real World, too.
George Wendt – While in LA, George Costanza wondered aloud to George Wendt whether “Cheers!” might be a better show if it did not take place in a bar.
Raquel Welch – In the Seinfeld universe, Raquel Welch gets involved in a cat fight! Rowrr!
Keith Morrison – He initially identified Kramer as a person of interest in the Smog Stranglings; eventually he identified the correct men, Tobias Lehigh Nagy, “5’ 6”, bald and reputedly a very generous tipper.”
Kathy Lee Gifford – While visiting the set of Regis and Kathy Lee to promote his coffee table book, Kramer spit-taked all over Kathy Lee. That’s something we’ve all wanted to do.
Bryant Gumbel – Always the nice guy in the real world, in the Seinfeld world, when Jerry showed up on the Today show to promote a benefit to clothe the homeless, Bryant mocked Jerry’s “puffy shirt.”
Candice Bergen – Kremer proved to be the only secretary Murphy Brown found competent.
David Letterman – David could not be bothered to remember Jerry’s name.
Al Roker – Who knew that there were people out there who collect TV Guide? I hope that Al’s recent surgery for cancer does not mean points. Thanks goodness, from all reports, he is doing well.
Marisa Tomei – On Seinfeld, Marisa is attracted to short, chubby, bald men. Ah! Were it only so.
Kathy Lee Gifford
Repeating my list from 2021 - Google says they’re all still alive, despite their increasingly advanced ages:
Theme: the 1969 Washington Senators (“a whole new ballgame in 1969”). The Senators v2.0 (1961-1971) had exactly one winning season, and this was it.
LF Frank Howard 8-8-36
RF Hank Allen 7-23-40
1B Mike Epstein 4-4-43
3B Ken McMullen 6-1-42
CF Del Unser 12-9-44
2B Bernie Allen 4-16-39
SS Tim Cullen 2-16-42

SS Toby Harrah 10-26-48
Not enough research last year. A slightly modified list of Canadians for 2022.
Theme: The Canadians
Michael J Fox
Carolyn Balderson Perry
Just because (almost) everyone lived doesn’t mean that I don’t like last year’s theme - so I’m re-doing it:
Theme: Sitcom Moms
Susan Saint James
I’m wondering if this was meant to be in the main Death Pool thread.
Theme: Televangelists (since Marcus Lamb died in 2021)
Hal Lindsey (born November 23 1929)
Pat Robertson (born March 22 1930)
Marilyn Hickey (born July 1 1931)
Jack Hayford (born June 25 1934)
Jimmy Swaggart (born March 15 1935)
Kenneth Copeland (born December 6 1936)
Jim Bakker (born January 2 1940)
John Hagee (born April 12 1940)
David Jeremiah (born February 13 1941)
James Robison (born October 9 1943)
John Ankerberg (born December 10 1945)
Mike Murdock (born April 18 1946)

Rod Parsley (born January 13 1957)
Brian Houston (born February 17 1954)
Robert Tilton (born June 7 1946)
I’ll suggest - "Who are three thirteen people who’ve never been in my kitchen?

Somewhere in the middle as usual…
Hi phungi, perhaps my entry was poorly worded. My theme this year is Favorite Singers and Musicians.
