Celebrity Deathpool 2001

Okay, then my pick of the Queen Mum is now officially changed to Layne Staley.

Damn, and I thought Hunter Kelly was a genius pick. 96 points!

I am one sick fucker…

This name is so familiar. Who is he?

A great link for checking out people’s status (living/dead) is the Dead People Server www.dpsinfo.com. I would play, but I’m not really very up-to-date on what celebs are in poor health (except for a few obvious ones like Ronald Reagan and Muhammad Ali).

here goes:

Strom Thurmond
Jesse Helms (both in one year, could we be so lucky?)
Dan Ackroyd
Johnny Cash
Rodney Dangerfield
Fidel Castro
Osama Bin Laden
Pepsi girl
Evel Knievel
Muhammed Ali
Sean “Poof Daddy” Combs
Ronald Reagan
Nancy Reagan

Holly Johnson is dead, he got the AIDS

OK I was wrong,

Holly Johnson is not dead yet, according to the DPS.

My bad, I’m sorry.

Though he is HIV+, I was half-right.

Revised picks to respond to the new “No posters” rule:

[list=1][li]Kevin Nealon[/li][li]Gerald Ford[/li][li]Dick Cheney[/li][li]Bill Clinton[/li][li]Clint Eastwood[/li][li]Macauley Culkin[/li][li]Sean Connery[/li][li]Britney Spears[/li][li]Susan Lucci[/li][li]Fred Durst (limp bizkit dude.)[/li][li]Garth Brooks[/li][li]John Travolta[/li]Jennifer Lopez

Damn! I had a nice little list of child stars picked out, then that pesky no one under 16 rule hit the board (I figured I’g go for quality points, not quantity points). Now I actually have to think (and we all know how painful that can be).

Here goes:

1 - Muhammed Ali
2 - Daniel Baldwin
3 - Jerome Bettis
4 - Gerald Ford
5 - Michael J. Fox
6 - Sadam Hussein
7 - Kareem Abdul Jabbar
8 - Johhny Mathis
9 - Paul Newman
10 - Ronald Reagan
11 - Keith Richards
12 - Darrel Strawberry
13 - Abe Vigoda

All for no (or dubious) reasons - just off the top of my head.
Now I have until January 1st to tweak my list if I so desire, correct?

No one under 16?

Jack – Jerome Bettis??

My list, without much thought:
[ul][li]Ronald Reagan[/li][li]Bob Hope (sure, he’s only worth a point or two, but you gotta have at least one gimmie)[/li][li]Boris Yeltsin[/li][li]Richard Pryor[/li][li]Robert Downey Jr. (a defensive move; a lot of people picked him and he’s worth mucho points)[/li][li]Katharine Hepburn (see Bob Hope)[/li][li]Chuck Jones[/li][li]Bobby Knight[/li][li]Richard Harris[/li][li]Kid Rock (is he still a celebrity?)[/li][li]Dudley Moore[/li][li]Ed McMahon[/li][li]Steve Irwin (The Crocodile Hunter. I figure he can only push his luck so far)[/li][/ul]

Bottle, yes Jerome Bettis. Just because I watched the game yesterday, and it seemed after every run, he displayed gyrations and facial distortions that make Daniel Day Lewis in My Left Foot look like a transendental meditator. I figure his heart is just going pop like a zit one of these days.
And he’s fairly young, it was my “flyer” pick.

Warning: Cape also does not let one get away without Previewing first. Oops.

Okay. At long last, here is my list:

  1. Colin Quinn
  2. Ruth Bader Ginsberg
  3. Ronald Reagan
  4. Richard Pryor
  5. Eudora Welty
  6. Andy Rooney
  7. Thor Heyerdahl
  8. Bob Dole
  9. Joan Jett
  10. Stephen Hawking.
