    Unfortunately, it didn't. That's the one I originally sent. Waiting to hear back on a 2nd option sent, but mostly just waiting to hear that Hulka has, himself, found an obit he'll accept. Thanks for trying.

    This is certainly shaping up to be an interesting day. Fatima Ali was my third rejected alt.obituaries deadpool pick to die in January. However, that's not why I'm posting. I had Bruce Corbitt in the Deadpool. Also picked him last year. However, he is not a guarantee to get a qualifying obituary. None of the metal sites will suffice. It needs to be picked up by either the local affiliate of a U.S. national network or Billboard, which profiled the band last August. We will see.

    Unfortunately, he's a disqualified candidate for deadpools because he's not (quite) human. RIP Swedish Chef, gone to the great meatball in the sky.

    I think this guy might just want to check his pulse a little more often...just to be on the safe side.

    I'm another one of the six people who chose Ali as their joker in the DDP. Third rejected alt.obituaries deadpool selection to die in January (but who's counting). The recent pictures of her bedridden made it hard to believe she was only 29. Not sure if it was talked about in any Deathlist thread but the other Top Chef competitors from her year reunited a couple of weeks ago to visit her in the hospital. A lot of mainstream coverage from the likes of People magazine.
