2009 CELEBRITY DEAD POOL!!!

Postby Minneapolitan » 14 Dec 2008, 03:26

Who's going to "kick the bucket" in 2009? Pick TEN celebrities you think will die. Whoever has the most correct picks at the end of 2009 wins! Be sure to spread the word about this Dead Pool before January 1st, 2009!

Rules of the Dead Pool
1. The year ends on December 31, 2009 at 11:59pm. All participants go by their own time zone.

2. All picks must have some element of celebrity, fame or political relevance so that an announcement will be mentioned in some credible news source.

3. No pick may be currently under a state-mandated death sentence, nor may their celebrity or fame be based solely on their moribund state or terminal illness.

4. You may choose less than ten celebrities, but may NOT choose more than ten. Multiple individuals under one name will not be allowed (i.e. The Rolling Stones)

Here's my predictions:-

1) Pope Bendict XVI
2) Nelson Mandela
3) Britney Spears
4) Norman Wisdom
5) Barack Obama
6) Osama Bin Laden
7) President Robert Mugabe
8) Margaret Thatcher
9) Sir Bobby Charlton
10) Ken Barlow

Not sure whether that last one is allowed, as it is a soap character, but he has been in Coronation Street for 39 years now, so it's about time they killed him off.
I will be running the London Marathon on 22nd April 2012 to raise funds to help disabled children and in memory of my darling wife who sadly passed away in January 2012.

Actually, Ken Barlow isn't allowed. However, the actor's name is William Roache. You are allowed to add him. Also, good pick on Norman Wisdom. Bitwise, good choice on Amy Winehouse...she's been coming up a lot in Celebrity Dead Pools I've seen. But what brought you to pick Patrick Swayze? If I had one more choice, I'd say J.D. Salinger - if anyone else wants to pick him, go for it! 8-)

Patrick Swayze may have cancer, but he's apparently doing quite well still. At least, enough so to star in a new TV series.

(I only know this because of my girlfriend. I'm pretty sure he's the only man she'll ever love...)

Do you mean find out that he's dead (but has been for a good while)? ;) Actually, perhaps I should add Castro to that as well...

Such a pleasant subject here, I must say.

William Roache, is (thankfully) alive fit and well - I'll replace Ken Barlow with Boris Yeltsin - who I think is still alive (or at the very least still being kept in some Russian freezer for the time being).
