Who will die this year?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
At my work someone is organising a death poll, everyone pays £1 and nominates someone famous they think will die in 2007. If the person dies they get to keep all the money.

I didn't take part but thought I would pose the question to people here...

I suppose you know you're old when your own idols/famous people of your own generation start dying.

    There's a website somewhere that predicts the deaths of famous people.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Pete Doherty and/or Kate Moss

    That film director who's in Celeb BB (Ken...?)

    I swear, the minute the Mss Britain girl, S Club woman and the Bollywood woman jump in the hot tub in their bikini's he's going to have a heart attack.

    One can hope.

    Maggie might shuffle off, she's got to be getting on a bit.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    We can only hope the old bat Maggie bites the dust this year.

    At a site I used to post at, you had to pick a list of ten for the coming year and we had a points system depending on how old they were. i.e if it was someone in their twenties you got 100 points, but if it was someone in their 90's you got 10 points or something. Was quite funny...

    President Bush? That would cheer a lot of people up...

    It wouldn't cheer me up, the killing of either Blair or Bush would be an absolutely terrible thing to happen, the fall out would be dire.

    Good point. I hadn't thought that one through...!

    i predict a high up royal will die this year, not through natural causes.

    this thread is a bit grim.

    Death is alright, you get the hang of life on the third time round.

    A Dead Pool.

    I nearly posted something like this but thought that someone would object on the basis of taste. Hell, I've even given it some thought...

    Maggie Thatcher
    Tony Hart
    Duke of Edinburgh
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Did you see Tony Hart on "It started with Swap Shop"? He looked like he could go at any minute :yes:

    What about Jimmy Saville?

    Why do you think I chose him? ;)
    What about Jimmy Saville?

    Oh, do I have that power of choice? I didn't realise that it was possible to have a wish list. Is there a charge for each success?

    Kirk Douglas.

    Thatcher is too much of a villian to die. She has to comeback for the sequel, like every good monster.

    Oh we've got one of those, a sad 40's biker.

    Leigh's a horny 40's biker. Tight catsuit, proper boots, racing helmet and a red Thundercat.

    Sad 40's biker goes out on his Harley, to which he's fucked about with the exhaust so it makes as much fucking noise as possible, with his pony tail and his 'cruising' gear i.e. jeans and a t-shirt. More fool him if he gets knocked off :D

    I can't see Ken Dodd lasting much longer. What a morbid bet though.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
