No, Marisa isn't dead or dying... this is just a reminder about the 2010 Dead Pool.

Once again, here are the rules:

1. Each participant must submit a list of 10 celebrities numbered from 1-10 by the deadline of December 31st, 2009.

Please post your list in this format. It makes for easier sorting and checking.


1. Celebrity #1
2. Celebrity #2
3. Celebrity #3
4. Celebrity #4
5. Celebrity #5
6. Celebrity #6
7. Celebrity #7
8. Celebrity #8
9. Celebrity #9
10. Celebrity #10


1. Each pick this year is worth 100 points minus their age.
Example: If your pick dies at age 67, you will recieve 33 points. If they die at 33, you will recive 67 points.

2. The game will begin on January 1st, 2010, and end on December 31st, 2010.

3. The celebrity must have achieved their level of fame themselves. It's not enough to be related to a celebrity.

4. Executions don't count. People on death-row are not eligable at all.

5. They must be famous for something OTHER than the fact that they haven't died already. The individual has to have had some level of fame BEFORE they got old and/or sick.

6. Only real humans allowed. No fictional characters, no companies, no fads/concepts, no governments, no animals. How much clearer do I need to be?

Prizes will be ..

A twelve pack of Diet Coke(or whatever it is you drink) and the respect and admiration of your peers.

Nice list. I'll have mine up in a day or two, trying to put it together...

Nay said...

mine is coming, but i think it's lame that I can't include kids of celebrities. If you can't get enjoyment out of dying kids, where CAN you get enjoyment?

Homer said...

You can wish for their death Nay, but to qualify they have to have done something to at least maintain themselves on the national stage.

You can vote for all of the Kardashians because they have their show, right? I'm rooting for Khloe...

DAMN DAMN DAMN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was only 11 days away from 68 points with Brittany Murphy!!!! Inspired choice on my part, I must say....

Kristin said...

Ok, I'm replacing my dead-on (pun intended) selection of Brittany Murphy...with.....Amy Winehouse.

My post double posted, so I deleted one...sorry!

Nay said...

Amy Winehouse, because she's turning 27. She'll probably kill herself just to try to be as cool as cobain/joplin/hendrix. And Rooney? Because he's cheating death already. My list is solid.
