GFOTY?

 

Polly-Louisa Salmon, better known by her stage name GFOTY is an English pop singer.

GFOTY (abbreviation of Girlfriend of the Year).

At this hour... she's alive.

Walter Mondale... no.

Bibliogryphon... Where's your candidate number 21?

CaptainChorizo...

I have one doubt in my mind...

This rule of Windy City Deadpool:

* Cancer Mum's/Athlete's Wives(IE Tiffany Youngs) and other Famous For Being Ill Types will not be accepted even if they get a qualifying Obit.

All the news said:

"Maria Menounos' mother, Litsa, has died after battling brain cancer"...

or...

"Maria Menounos announced that her mother, Litsa, died on Sunday after a long battle with brain cancer"...

Then...

Is Litsa Menounos... the only exception to that rule?

And... Why? :scratchhead:

Hugs. ;)

Family of the famous is a grey area/heavily debated in deadpools. Her famous daughter was enough for her to qualify over some regular cancer mum with no blood related ties to fame. 

 

While I personally avoid choosing fringy picks, her illness was widely publicised by her daughter on her own talk show for quite some time. The same question may be asked when Terry Lubbock karks it, but his campaigning for answers over his son’s death gives him ‘fame’ in his own right I guess. For now they’re allowed to be picked.

Actually she qualifies as she has her own IMDB page as an actor rather than because she has a famous daughter (which would not be sufficient). In her case it's a very fringy career right on the debatable line but that's why she's in not because she has a famous daughter.

 

Terry Lubbock qualifies because he was famously campaigning about his son's death before he was dying of cancer and therefore has prior fame (all be it that fame is as a result of his son's death).

Thanks Perhaps and Grim Up North for the explanations...

This is simply too complicated...

It's a difficult choice...

I guess I'll have to find my old math books.

Mind you, even though Litsa qualifies as a pick, if her career isn’t mentioned in one of the QO sources then she doesn’t score.

Just to add, Litsa Menounos is absolutely the lowest bottom of the barrel acceptable name allowed in the DDP, and because she had a "career" of her own Which turns out to be not worth a licence to shit by the looks of the obits. I dont think she'll get a Windy reference pool. That rule applies to Roz Paterson, an actual journalist with a long career from Glasgow whose CV was ignored in favour of "dying mum" stories when she was ill. Much to my fury. 

 

Terry Lubbock would be a known name to most of the Brits here - a well known justice campaigner for close to two decades. He'd be perfectly acceptable as a pick.

I think you’re confusing her daughter’s fame in the article. I see nothing where it mentions what Litsa’s career is.

When did that become a rule? DDP just says needs a mention of their death in a QO, nothing about their career.

That’s not for the DDP, that’s a rule for Windy City.

I didn't choose Terry Lubbock in this because I wondered if he fulfilled that fame criterion, and I couldn't ask Cpt. Chorizo for clarification because I didn't want to reveal my joker in the Deathlist Cup to my opponent.

Mind you, even though Litsa qualifies as a pick, if her career isn’t mentioned in one of the QO sources then she doesn’t score.

You're right again...

This is the rule (word for word by CaptainChorizo):

*Some name's may appear like a gray area(ie Roz Patterson). Notable in her Native Country as a reporter and would easily get a QO with a plane crash or auto accident type death. However if none of her QO obits mention her journalistic career and is just an angle about her being a Cancer Mum then no points will be awarded.

Joey Russ... the rule is very clear.

"Cancer mums" is a term generally used on this forum to refer to terminally ill people with no claims to fame who are featured as sob stories in the tabloid media.  Bucket lists, memory albums compiled for young children, deathbed weddings, that sort of thing.  They don't necessarily have children, or cancer.

 

Litsa Menounos was not a "Cancer Mum", despite having cancer and being someone's mum.  She is more FOTF - family of the famous.
