The Ghoul Pool

This weekend Chief Justice Rehnquist died after struggling with cancer, and now Bob Denver, better known as Gilligan on "Gilligan's Island", has died at the age of 70 from cancer. My condolences to their families.

Because deaths of the famous and well known come in threes, let's take an informal poll and conjecture who's next. Elizabeth Taylor? Eunice Kennedy Shriver??? Let the Ghoul Pool begin.....

Here's a few:

Michael Stipe (from R.E.M.) That dude has been on his last leg for awhile now.

Any gansta' rapper (but hey, that's the thug life!)

Elvis (he's still alive you know)

So yeah, musicians are always a good solid bet....
I'll put a sawbuck down on Stipe.

Uh, can I change my vote to Courtney Love? I just remembered seeing her on the "Comedy Central Roast" of Pam Anderson. She's a great bet.....Also, FYI, Michael Owen (Who your are secretly in love with :-) went to Newcastle United. Now you know who to root for.

As I said on K Street Blues, I nominate George W. for #3. The only time I will vote for him for ANYTHING.

Sean-- Michael Stipe?? BITE YOUR TONGUE! LOL. I do, however, agree that a musician is a best bet. Maybe Jim Morrisson or Tupac.

sean - yay for MO. such a hottie. and GOOD call on Courtney Love. and did michael stipe ever publicly say if he has cancer or some other disease? perhaps i'm being naive.

and my vote also goes for George W. I mean, he's already emotionally dead....

I'm gonna throw out a couple sleepers that I've been getting the death vibe on for a while

The Queen of England: Woman's older than dirt

Paul Newman: still hot but he's 80!

Pope Benedict 16...god willing.

Dick Cheney...man's got issues

My College BF and his friends had a ghoul pool a while back. He started by choosing the Pope, but his Catholic guilt consumed him, so he switched his bet to Chris Farley. He won.

Coincidence?

BLS.. maybe Suge just can't be killed?

Courtney Love was treeeeemendously entertaining on the (uncensored version of the) Pamela Anderson Celebrity Roast. If she died there'd be 1 less idiot celeb to laugh at. What bothered me was her being introduced as "Courtney Love-Cobain". Seriously?

While I wish someone like Anna Nicole Smith or Paris Hilton would die (and it's possible), I'm going to say Wilford Brimley.

He's been swirling the bowl with his "dy-a-beetus" for a long time now.

suge knight is the bionic man apparently.

awwww i hope wilford brimley doesn't go soon :(
