Death = Points

So, you might think this is morbid or awful - I did, at first. But then I found it amusing and joined right in.

Manny and a few of his friends have a yearly celebrity death pool. This means that at the beginning of each year, they compile a list of 20 celebrities they think might "expire" within the coming year. Ranking translates into points - number 20 is the person most likely to die, and if/when they do, you get 20 points. Other dead pools play for money, but we just play for fame.

So, without any further adieu, I present to you:


Gigi's 2006 Celebrity Dead Pool
20. Ariel Sharon 10. Shelley Winters
19. Kirk Douglas 9. Walter Cronkite
18. Muhammad Ali 8. Zsa Zsa Gabor
17. Dick Clark 7. Billy Graham
16. Gerald Ford 6. B.B. King
15. Eunice Kennedy-Shriver 5. Bob Barker
14. Nancy Reagan 4. Courtney Love
13. Lady Bird Johnson 3. Ashlee Simpson
12. Wilford Brimley 2. Brigitte Nielsen
11. Boris Yeltsin 1. Paris Hilton

It seems that as we get to the end of your list, it takes a turn towards the wishful instead of the realistic.

For a second there, I thought you had hit on one of your dead pool. Just a misplaced letter or two in the name.
