Celebrity Death Pool 2015

edited December 2015 in The Crudcatcher
Bit of a late start so I've copied the relevant bits of CWNT's post from last time around.
The rules (stollen from last years thread):
Pick three celebrities who you reckon will be worms meat by 12pm on 31st Dec 2014.
Pick one "Tragedy Pick", someone you'd rather didn't decide to die in 2014...

One point for each. Winner will receive a copy of kowalski's new book "Pointless Motorbike Anecdotes and me", and one of GT Arrowhead's shlt bikes. and his mum.
Nothing to say famous people shuffling off this mortal coil can't be discussed in this thread.
I'll go for the ones that let me down so badly last year:

    What are Kardashians famous for other than being celebrities? Do any of them have an actual talent?

    Talentless wastes of space. Not sure how they even became celebrities but the mysterious (ahem) release of Kim's 'leaked' sex tape just as her reality TV show started didn't seem to do any harm!

    1/ Christopher Lee
    2/ Norman Tebbit
    3/ Neil Kinnock

  • 1. Peter Sutcliffe. The quiet little truck driver, who liked to get out and about. For some reason I thought he'd already died so was more than a little surprised to hear of his ill health late last year. R.I.Pper

    2. Peter Sallis. Time to come good after last years let down, Peter.

    3. Sam Simon. He's the co-creator of The Simpsons and is so likely to peg it that he's even inviting people, according to my wife's internet thing, to put him on their death list. I mainly picked him as there's a small chance his last request will be that no more episodes are shown or repeated. I would thus be a winner twice over.

    Outside bet goes to Eddie Large. Once just a big fat bastard, now Britain's longest living heart transplant recipient. Nearly died last year after a simple trip, so must be fairly fragile. Given the state of much of Britain's pavements, another tumble is not an unreasonable expectation.
    He's still overweight, can't stand up without getting dizzy and is waiting to top next years list, if he dodges the grim reaper for another 12 months.

    Also ran - Zsa Zsa Gabor. Seen off a good few rivals and surely now Queen of coffin dodging. Anyone who takes 18 months to realise someone chopped one of their legs off is clearly not in fine fettle. Seeing as that was a couple of years ago, any second wind must be surely no more than a gentle breeze by now.
