Ideas and Possibilities for 2006

Recommended Posts

I'm surprised Estelle Getty didn't make your list ...

I entered her as a wildcard in handrejka's PoolofDeath as "Any one Golden Girl"

I made my net a little wider by saying any one cast member of "Last of the Summer Wine",

 

surely one of them will drop dead in '06.

Too late I learned that Dutch entertainer Rudi Carrell, world famous in the Netherlands and Germany, is suffering from lung cancer. I wonder if he'd make a proper pick anyway, since he's virtually unknown in the rest of the world.

Beefheart is a good old fashioned guess. With Christmas and that, I could

have done with more time to consider the 50, so I concentrated on the DDP 20.

 

Is she not well then?

She makes Elizabeth Taylor look like Lindsay Lohan

I also opted out on selecting him for my 2006 ddp based on the famousness factor.

My DDP team isn't quite finalised yet, but there's a good chance he'll be on there.

 

The chances of his dying in 2006 are close on 100%. The chances of his getting an obit may be slightly less, but we generally do tend to underestimate how many obscure celebs get obits in the national press.

I had Johnny Cochran. I am only sharing that because even though I made 40 dollars, I have a feeling I could have retired had I entered the big league.

 

Of my list of 12, 6 passed on to a better place. Now I'm trying to put together my 2006 list, which is much harder when everyone else has my people!

 

So far I have Estelle Getty,

Lou Rawls,

Henry Allingham,

Pinochet,

John Kenneth Galbraith...

 

That means we have 7 more to go...

 

Any suggestions?

That is a good point. It convinced me to re-juggle my 2006 ddp list at the last moment and include his name at the expense of Brooke Astor.

I guess this thread is redundant now. I couldn't help noticing the Beverley sisters in the New Year honours list (quite a good trawling ground for candidates). One of them has to go soon. But which one?

Maybe someday down the long wide rhode the DL will have a voting

day of some sort to re - organize the list. Perhaps to add one last

participent that was forgotten and who's clock may be ticking. :unsure:

I just realised, shouldn't this thread be 'Ideas and possibilities for 2007'?

Assuming it is re-named, reading the Dom Mintoff thread made me start wondering about Rauf Denktash, former president of North Cyprus, born 1924. He had a heart attack a few years ago. He could be one to watch.

I was looking for survivors from the Wizard of Oz and came across a whole load of munchkins. Well, only seven left out of 124 and maybe less since this article. Could a munchkin make the deathlist? If so, who? I like the look of Margaret Pellegrini. Not figuratively speaking.

Are you out of your head Godot a f*****g munchkin!!!

 

If the likes of Ross Davidson can't make the list how the hell would a motherf*cking Munchkin.

 

I feel better after that outburst.

 

This has been the Kronenbourg post.
