Ghoul Pool 2005

A local radio station is having a contest, here's da rules:

Pick THREE famous people that you think will end up six feet under in this upcoming year. If you pick more than three, you will be disqualified.

A point system will be assigned to each entry based on age, known health and habits.

One entry per person, and no on-air host can be nominated for your picks or you will be automatically disqualified.

--

So basically.. who's gonna die this year?

Here's the 3 that i've come up with :

James Doohan
The Pope
Jimmy Carter

Any other/better suggestions? Those won't get much points because they are more or less a given. Liz Taylor? Robert Blake?

The Pope is too obvious. Go for medium value scores who aren't so obvious, but have promise. My picks:

1.) Courtney Love
2.) Richard Pryor
3.) 50 Cent

Sadly, it's unlikely that we'll see Courtney Love and Andy Dick go in the same year.

These threads are usually shut down. And it's called a Death Pool.

You laugh now, but you'll be sorry when I'm dead. You'll sit and cry for days.

Not only do "we" not link to it, but "we" don't circumvent the URL censor unless "we" want some unfavorable attention from the admins... -sfsdfd

Well I think it's important to note that these aren't supposed to be people you want to die.. they are people you think will die. At least, that's how i'm approaching it.

I thought it was Mary Kate? Ahh, who cares, they're interchangable anyway. Both of them are scary ugly thin.
