Celebrity Death Pool 2020

Getting it started early. Is anybody left on here to notice? Usual rules apply. This year I'm keeping to a strictly Royal theme:

1: Phil The Greek, wants to make it to 100 apparently. Seems optimistic...
2: Prince Andrew. Somebody will do it.
3: Queen Elizabeth II.

Tragedy Pick: Bryan Ferry. (Musical royalty IMHO)

    Bloody hell, well done Spinner. I should copy last year’s list as is my tradition.

    Phil the Greek, must be a sure thing by now.

    Murray Walker, is he still alive?

    Morgen Freeman, the rumours will come true one day.

    Tragedy pick: Keith Richards, pickling clearly works.

    Copied and pasted from this time last year.

    Maybe not much of a celeb, but one of the great drummers: Neil Peart from Rush.

    Where's the glory in predicting people in their 90s and older? Anyone wants another, Jimmy Carter is still with us at 95.

    Khameini, Syd Little and Eddy Merckx

    and then the next thing you know

    The only thing that counts in this competition is whether they will die in 2020, so that's why a lot of crusties feature.

    Top one would be a shame but suspect could be knocked off by the 2 below. Could add a few more but may be classed as racist.

    He's not The Messiah, he's a very dead boy.

    Actually that should have been a tragedy pick. Comic genius and still p!ss myself laughing at Life Of Brian.

    Not if they listen to Radio 4 they hadn't. 53 years of Just a Minute and he'd only missed couple of episodes in this last series I think ?

    I'd have loved to have seen him working in the Glaswegian shipyards - can't imagine it.

    Mine too but the reference to Glasgow shipyards got me to thinking.

    Kirk Douglas 103 RIP. Old style movie legend finally moves on to the screens in the heavens. A true legend.

  • Greta Thunberg from unnatural causes but hopefully she'll choke on one of her own farts.



    Don't criticize my advice. You wouldn't sniff someone's a-hole and then complain it smells like shít.

    That is well and truly backing the favourite. :)
    Kirk Douglas was the youngest on your list at 103.
    You wouldn't get long odds on all three checking out this year.
