I don’t get it–is it against the rules to have someone on your list over 100?

Here are my picks:

Prince Charles
the Pope
Mick Jagger
Sharon Osbourne
Jesse Helms
Ronald Reagan
Snoop Doggy Dogg, or whatever he’s going by these days
Bela Karolyi (crazy gymnastics coach for Nadia Comaneci/Mary Lou Retton, among others)
Whitney Houston
Jay Leno
Saddam Hussein
Drew Carey
Queen Elizabeth II

  1. Barbra Streisand
  2. Bobby Brown
  3. Jamie McMurray (NASCAR driver)
  4. Kenny Rogers
  5. Snoop Dogg
  6. Busta Rhymes

  8. Willie Nelson
  9. Dan Reeves (football coach)
  10. Mike Ditka
  11. Bob Dole
  12. Rosie O’Donnell
  13. O.J. Simpson

Well, it’s just that you wouldn’t score any points.

book, a score’s derived by subtracting a person’s age from 100. Therefore, even if Strom did die you’d get zero zip zippity nada points. If Miss Spears croaks, you’d garner 79.

My picks:

  1. Karol Joseph Wojtyla, aka John Paul II, Pope
  2. James Watson, scientist
  3. Richard Starkey, aka Ringo Starr, Beatle
  4. Paul McCartney, Beatle
  5. Paul Newman, actor

  10. Winona Ryder, shoplifter
  11. Martha Stewart, busybody
  12. Christina Aguilera, skank ho
  13. Osama bin Laden, terrorist
