Yeah, you are. I’ve had her as a pick two years running. :stuck_out_tongue:

I have officially subscribed to the 2012 death pool! YAY!!! :smiley:

Thanks Baker for being our Death Mistress. Thanks amarone for all your hard work these past few years!

I shall post my list of those who are immortal in a few days. I’m still making decisions. Ok, it’s more like maybe, maybe not but this is important so I shall not make haste.

From the 2011 Death Pool:

Will there be a “themed list” award this year?

And here is the penultimate status. Not much action in November - 4 celebs departed, but there were only 5 votes in total for them.

45 celebrities have died, representing 5.7% of the total and 9.7% of the votes.

Oooh, Baker, please do a themed list award if it isn’t too much work. Those are fun. We could almost have a separate contest of themed death pool competition.

Oops - wrong thread.

The challenges were only for people thought to be famous solely because of their illness. It was not a generic challenge for being “not famous enough”.

Amarone wins the 2012 Doh! award, and the contest hasn’t even started yet.

On the thirteenth day of Christmas, my Death Pool celebrities:

12 drummers drumming–Ringo Starr
11 pipers piping–Ian Anderson
10 lords a-leaping–Christopher D’Amboise
9 ladies dancing–Charlotte D’Amboise
8 maids a-milking–Nadya Suleman
7 swans a-swimming–Mark Phelps
6 geese a-laying–Wilt Chamberlain
5 golden rings–Mike Tyson
4 calling birds–Roger McGuinn
3 French hens–Bridget Bardot
2 turtle–Mark Volman
Doves–The Artist formerly known as Prince
And a partridge in a pear tree–David Cassidy

Remember, it is a honor just to be nominated.

The OP needs to be changed to say 2012 instead of 2011.

:wink:

:smack:

I can’t change it myself, but this should serve as notice that those three awards that say 2011 are 2012 instead!:stuck_out_tongue:

Reported to a Mod for correction.

:confused: Is there another Wilt Chamberlain?

Think lay-ups.

Think already laying up the daisies since 99.

I’m not sure if I’m going to play. I’ve done this like 5 times and have yet to have anyone die on me. Maybe I should have people pay me to be on the list.

She’s already dead.
