It’s inevitable, friends and neighbors. Death. That old gray bastard holds no man special in his heart. Everybody dies.
What can you do? Should we lament and pity our short time here on earth? Or should we, feeble and fragile beings as we are, profit from this disparaging curse?
I say piss on it. Let’s live while we can and bury the rest! We’ll spit in the face of destiny! Let us mortal men make a crude mockery of our most ancient and ever-present foe. Fuck Death until he fucks you! This is OUR celebrity death pool.
The rules are simple. Two men enter one man leaves… wait. Sorry, wrong death match.
Here we go. It’s as simple as my special cousin Tommy.
#1 Pick ten celebs that you think will die. They have to be famous. If I can’t Google them, they don’t count. That brings us to the next rule.
#2 Pick 3 alternates. If I can’t find a person or if a victim, err, I mean celebrity participant on your list dies before all lists are turned in, it doesn’t count. I will then use an alternate. New in 2012, if one of your alts dies, you get 1 bonus point!!!!
#3 There is a non-refundable entry fee of $10 to play. There will be a cash prize for the winner along with a trophy which will be awarded New Year’s Eve of each year.
Scoring: 1 point is given for a death. Then points are awarded for placement on the list. 10 points for #1, 9 for the 2nd and so on. AGE is only a factor in a tie-breaker, then its 1 point for every decade the person is under 100. 1 point for 90, 2 for 80, get it?
EXAMPLE : Dick’s #1 is Elvis, tragically Elvis dies, Dick gets 10pts for having him at #1 and 1pt for having him on the list. I’ll help you with the math here guys, that’s 11pts! In case of a tie- Say Elvis is 42 when he dies, the tiebreaker points would kick in and Dick would get an extra 6 pts for the 6 decades under 100. Good old Dick, he gets all the good stuff.
If you have any questions or concerns just ask me. If you don’t understand the rules, don’t worry, I do and I’ll help you out.
