Snow Job

On this unseasonably warm winter evening, a reflection: Those guys sure know how to have fun!

Celebrity Death Pool 2012

I know I'm way late on this and will abstain from competition and from also knowing who has already died this year. This is my list for the remainder of the year, just for the hell of it. I CANNOT win, just for fun for me. I'll try to remember next year.
1. Nelson Mandela
2. Prince Philip
3. Betty White
4. Jimmy Carter
5. Wilford Brimley
6. Sir Thomas Sean Connery
7. Queen Elizabeth II
8. Muhammad Ali
9. Casey Anthony
10. Joan Rivers

2012 Celebrity Death Pool

A reminder of the rules to Thom and anyone else who wants to partake in the 2012 Celebrity Death Pool:
1) You choose 10 people and post them to the Blog
2) You can only take five of the people from your list the previous year
3) At mid-year, five extra people can be chosen
4) Each entrant must forfeit $10 to the winner
5) In the event of a tie, monies are split

Also, Thom - since rule #5 says monies are split, I don't think we should continue over from last year. We both "won", so...

Here's my list:
  1. Zsa Zsa Gabor*
  2. Ariel Sharon*
  3. Dick Cheney
  4. Stephen Hawking
  5. Billy Graham
  6. Nelson Mandela*
  7. Kirk Douglas*
  8. Ernest Borgnine
  9. Jerry Lewis
  10. Fidel Castro*

* used last year

History of the Death Pool:
Thom won in 2010 with 1 death.
Thom and Waple tied in 2011 with 2 deaths apiece (Waple - Steve Jobs, Kim Jong-Il, Thom - Elizabeth Taylor, Kim Jong-Il)

Celebrity Death Pool 2012

Everyone will die, because it's the end of the world! No, just kidding.

Here is my list for 2012:

Aretha Franklin*
Ray Bradbury*
Jerry Lewis*
Billy Graham*
Zsa Zsa Gabor*
Margaret Thatcher
Joe Paterno
Mickey Rooney
Muhammad Ali
Eli Wallach

*Used last year.
