Dead Pool 2010 - Harvey's Picks

Here they are, read 'em and weep.

1. Stephen Hawking
2. Annette Funicello
3. Steve Jobs
4. Billy Graham
5. Kim Jung il
6. Ariel Sharon
7. Kirk Douglas
8. Elizabeth Edwards
9. Amy Winehouse
10. Rush Limbaugh (wishful thinking)


Jack's picks -

1. Pope Benedict XVI
2. Elizabeth II
3. George H. W. Bush
4. Nelson Mandela
5. Jacques Chirac
6. Robert Downey, Jr.
7. Hugh Hefner
8. Henry Kissinger
9. Tony Bennett
10. Mir Hussein Mousavi

Harvey and I have both been conservative and picked mainly dying hulks. Sharon and Hawking literaly. But his pick of Steven Jobs and mine of Robert Downey, Jr. are daring stabs at middle-aged people. I narrowly escaped making a fool of myself by picking Andy Warhol. Warhol died in 1987.

    Elizabeth II will outlive us all. Look how long her mother lived. As will geo.h.w.bush and amy winehouse. The bad never die young, or even old.
    Can a person be dreck? I thought that referred to stuff.

  5. Keep in mind that I am the current champ at this with 93 points last year, getting both MJ and Patrick Swayze. And yes, a person can be dreck.

    Can a person be miserly, tight-fisted, self-righteous, racist, arrogant, have terrible humour and smug all rolled in one too? Like emm.... Jack perhaps.

    I think the the above Anonymous is dire need of some mental help. Quickly!

    I think the above Anonymous is a cretin. Totally!

  9. 93 points is huge. Some people have gaydar. Harvey has walking-corpse-dar.

  10. Oy...How did we both miss J. D. Salinger!

  11. When Salinger croaks everyone who has ever been a pretentious teenager will be in mourning.
