dead pool 2007

dun-dun-dun . . . here it is. my choices for those most likely to die in 2007. i contribute $5 a month to the pot, $60 for the year, and wait for god to take his children home (or send them to hell, depending). we’ve got at least seven other players this year, so the jackpot could be $600 or more. last year’s list was no good – i only made 47 points, and all of those were in december. basically, 2006’s winner of $300, one of pos’ friends, had the edge with don knotts. my strategy for the year: a few terrorists, lots of really old people, a couple deeply disturbed youngins, and a smattering of the terminally ill. godspeed!

addendum: when they're dead, i'll update in red.

WAY too many people on here that i like! BB king, mel brooks no!!!!

i agree with you on some of them though - Tammy Faye Bakker, although she should've been dead a while ago. Kirk Douglas, Dick Clark, Ariel Sharon, Phyllis Diller... but this is too macabre even for me!
