The Celebrity Death Pool 2012

“Jim Rockford” Garner. I used to love the show. Watched almost every episode. It is now running on the local oldies station and I find it almost unwatchable. Of course it couldn’t be my tastes that have changed … so I am irritated at James Garner for not being timeless. I admit, though, this is the mildest irritation on my list, but I was stuck for a last name, so…

My themed entry, Leftist Moonbats and Loathsome Dictators:

George Soros
Louis Farrakhan
Hugo Chavez
Robert Mugabe
Michael Moore
Kim Jong-Il
Bill Moyers
Bashir Assad
Maxine Waters
Nancy Pelosi
Harry Reid
Eric Holder
Jon Corzine
Alternates:
Rosie O’Donnell
Bill Ayers
Rahm Emanuel

Maybe Garner getting old and having all those strokes pissed him/her off…

Thanks to all who tell me if their list is themed, I wasn’t too sure about a couple and PM’d them about it.

If a list has too many picks, say, 14 instead of 13, I’ll cut off the last one unless told otherwise,

(Version 3, I really thought I had checked this.)

Michael Douglas
Zsa Zsa Gabor
Margaret Thatcher
Bridget Bardot
Ronnie Biggs
Ariel Sharon
Dick Clark
Jerry Lewis
Phyllis Diller
Mel Gibson
Billy Ghraham the preacher
Henry Kissinger
Hugo Chavez
Andy Willams

Alternate:
Lindsey Lohan

I just want to wish everyone GOOD LUCK!

I hope I crush you all!

Paul, I don’t know what the problem is, but you still have 14 picks.

In all the years I’ve been entering the Death Pool, this is the first time I’ve realized what a horrible, cruel, sick game it is. Nothing bad had better to happen to Charlotte or Christopher, or I’m going to be very, very upset with you, Annie-X-mas

On the other hand, this pick is pure brilliance. I can’t even add him to my own list, because I am notoriously bad at picking, and he really does need to die.

Conrad Murray
John Travolta
Kim Jong Il
Robin Gibb
Penny Marshall
Nanette Fabray
Billie Jean King
Tim Curry
Dan Rather
Bryant Charles Gumbel
Lindsay Lohan
Peter Tork

Janet Jackson
Carrie Fisher

The result of my attempt to use wikipedia to find people. There were just too many candidates to go through properly and I no longer want to find out which names have health problems. I started with 1920s births as a balance between age and points, hence mine are mostly around the same age.It was pretty sad to go through the lists and realize just how many household names will shuffle off in the next few years.

My list, Unthemed, in rough order from “don’t die” to “Good riddance”

  1. Colin ‘Pinetree’ Meads, NZ Rugby player and the big NZ Living Legend since Sir Edmund Hillary died last year.
  2. Charlie Watts, Rolling stones drummer and former substance abuser.
  3. Albert Uderzo, ‘Asterix’ Illustrator/writer
  4. Sylvester ‘Sly’ Stone. Disco-funk singer legendary for excess lifestyle.
  5. Jim Lovell, Apollo 13 Astronaut
  6. James D. Watson, Co-discoverer of DNA
  7. Daniel Arap Moi, Former Kenyan President
  8. T-Pain, Known as Faheem Rasheed Najm to his mother. My 27 club pick. Unsure what to call him in the plain list.
    9.Don King, Boxing Promoter
  9. Ariel Sharon, Former Israeli President. Jumping on the bandwagon here.
  10. Dick Cheney, US shotgun/Quail enthusiast, more machine than man.
  11. Charles Manson, Very naughty boy.
  12. Harold Camping, savior of the earth.

Alternates:
Barbara Bush, Wife of G.H.W. Bush.
Lily Allen, British Pop singer. Please don’t die. But… you are a 27 club candidate right now.

Could we at least weld a chastity belt on to her, if she is going to live forever? I mean come on. PUT A CORK IN IT!
