Celebrity Death pool 2020

Points are 111-age at death. Celebrity must be notable enough for their demise to be reported in National news in your country.

You can change your list without stating reason up until 01:20 on 1/20/20 as long as there was no significant change in the health of a person you are adding or dropping since 1/1/20. You can join at any time, but all your celebs still need to have a pulse at the time of posting your list. You get a grace peiodof 72 hours from the time of posting to make tweaks -same rules regarding changes in health.

so without further ado.....

1) Leslie Phillips
2) Stuart Hall (the UK "presenter"/creep)
3) Vera Lynn
4) Prince Phillip
5) Buzz Aldrin
6) William Shatner
7) Betty White
8) Kirk Douglas
9) Diane Rehm
10) D0nald trum9

Here's the thread for noting the deaths of celebs not on any Dwellar's list

John Lewis.

I love the man, but stage IV pancreatic cancer is stage IV pancreatic cancer.

1) Bill Cosby (Eddie Murphy got a good laugh the other night mentioning that he's staying home with his baby and Bill's in prison, not what people predicted. Turns out all SNL needs to be funny is Eddie)
2) Pete Davidson (speaking of SNL this time a skinny guy goes)
3) Donald J Trump ( his doctor won't intervene with the stroke because of his perfect health)
4) Brendan Fairclough (great rider but...)
5) Mia Farrow
6) Emile Francis (HoF goalie)
7) Paul Lowe (running back for the steroid introducing '63 Chargers)
8) Jack Nicholson
9) Paul Krugman (if Trump lives Krugman will stroke when he's re-elected)
10) Samuel Robson "Rob" Walton (oldest heir)

My vision is a (long slow painful) heart attack mid "speech", but no-one intervenes because they think he's just mocking someone.

Nigel Farage will never die. He has a deal with Moloch.

Limey, I laughed my ass off. Not just because of the description, but because of the sudden impact rather than keeping it for a punchline timing is everything

34 points I think, he was 77 wasn't he? Also I like how it was "Mr. Limey's Offering", but after storming into an early lead, now it's "we"
