Celebrity death pool

Thom, wasn't it you who told me a year or so ago that you and your coworkers were in on a celebrity death pool one year? Someone has gotta be raking it in right now, although I don't know if I'd put pitchman Billy Mays on a list of celebrities...

If I had to guess who's going to go next, I'd say Nelson Mandela or Queen Elizabeth II. They're both so OLD.

My dark horse in the race would be Kirstie Alley.
The person I most wish would die: Dick Cheney or Fred Phelps (of the Westboro Baptist Church).
Others that are likely to die: Wilford Brimley, Joan Rivers, Keith Richards and Mick Jagger

Yes, every year we'd have a death pool at work. Somehow I don't think anyone predicted Michael Jackson dying. I agree with you about Cheney. Mwaaaaaa! *ducklike*

SOMEONE owes me money, here. He's not dead YET but that's pretty good guess work.

I didn't read the article. I just assumed with the title that he's got one foot out the door.
