Celebrity Deathpool 2000

The Queen Mother??

Wait a minute, she’s like - 101.

100 points minus the age…hmmm…

If she bites the dust this year, does that mean CuriousGeorge gets negative one point?

Need a ruling here I think.

Happy New Year Everyone.

BurnMeUp- No, I just want double points if he dies.


Change one of my Ronald Reagans (doesn’t matter which, does it?) to Christian Slater.


“John C., it looks like you have blended in very nicely.”

Hey Little Nemo, I do believe Kirk Douglas is already dead.

And the ChiefScott George Harrison guess tripped me right out of my jammies.

Hey! Wait a minute everybody! Is Sean “Puffy” Combs the same person as “Puff Daddy”? Please don’t laugh at my ignorance! (It’s okay to laugh at my overuse of the exclamation point!)

A few long shots in here…

I haven’t come up with my list yet, but I’ll keep track of the results and post a monthly summary during the year (unless someone else is already doing this). I’ll start creating the database tomorrow, since I have the day off.

Hey, what does the winner get other than a lot of suspicion from the rest of the SDMB?


Yes Boris B, Sean “Puffy” Combs and Puff Daddy are one and the same. Recenly arrested in NYC for firing a gun in a nightclub…

so you found a girl who thinks really deep thoughts. what’s so amazing about really deep thoughts? Tori Amos

actually psy, he was detained because he was carrying a gun in a nightclub where a gun was fired… he was being questioned and was detained because he didn’t have proper registration but the gunhad not been fired.

She caught your eye like one of those pointy hook latches that used to dangle from screen doors and would fly up whenever you banged the door open again.

Well, which big star with sons that act too just died recently? Was it Lloyd Bridges? Yoinks. Got to start watching Entertainment Tonight more often.

Cristi - I’m fairly sure Kirk Douglas is still alive, albeit very ill. A quick online search found no reference to his death.

Jeffery - The right to go “Nyaah, nyaah, I win” and do a superior dance is its own reward. Of course if people want to chip in for a trophy, I’m game.

Chief - What? You couldn’t have knifed Elizabeth Taylor and gotten points for both of us?

Gilligan - Any help would be greatly appreciated. I was sort of figuring everyone could keep track of their own picks and post as they accumulated points.

You know, I’m kind of sick of these outrageous accusations against the Chief. He’s familiar enough around here that everyone should know by now that if he have stabbed somebody, he’d have finished the job. < g >

That said:

George Bush the elder
Dick Clark
Walter Cronkite
Snoop Doggy Dog
Rudolph Giuliani
Alan Greenspan
Saddam Hussein
John Madden
John Cardinal O’Connor
Joe Piscobo

Livin’ on Tums, Vitamin E and Rogaine

Ahhh, yes, my favorite time of year " Who’s Gunna croak in the next year."

My picks, in random order are:

  1. Milton Berle
  2. Bob Hope
  3. Harry Morgan ( That’s Colonel Potter, to you.)
  4. Sir Alec Guiness.(“Use the force.”)
    5)Abe Vigoda ( “It’s business.”)
    6)Buddy Ebsen ( Jed Clampett)
  5. Sir John Gielgud
    8)Katherine Hepburn
  6. Ricardo Montalban.
  7. Queen Elizabeth II ( Her mother will never die, I’ve decided.)

I think we should have a mandatory one pick from the under 35 crowd. Kind of a Fantasy Pick:

Mine is: Adam Sandler.

And of course, the obligatory catagory: Whomever is in charge of Israel, Palestine or some small Russian Independant State and anyone who has ever been on the cast for Saturday Night Live.

ohh, this is tough.

First, the ones I think will actually die:

  1. Muhammed Ali
  2. Dudley Moore
  3. Ron Reagan
  4. Liz Taylor
  5. Arnold Schwartzenegger

Wishful thinking:

  1. Darryl Strawberry
  2. Dennis Rodman
  3. Celine Dion
  4. Mariah Carey
  5. Michael Jackson

I don’t know why anyone’s guessing Magic Johnson, he’ll probably outlive us all, HIV or no.

“Witnesses said
the chained helmets,
which directly faced each
other on their platforms,
seemed increasingly angry
and agitated in the
moments leading up to the

Ohhh, Celine Dion and Mariah Carey, can they both die? Please? I’ll give up all my points of this comes true.

Good guesses, all, except for one. Keith Richards is not going to die. After Armageddon, what will remain will be cockroaches and him.

Remember, I’m pulling for you; we’re all in this together.
