Death List ’12

[ 36 ] January 1, 2012 |

Last year was a tough year for my Death List. Only Andy Rooney died. I’ve replaced him with Phyllis Diller. The rest are the same:

1. Bhumibol Adulyadej, King of Thailand
2. Mike Wallace
3. Margaret Thatcher
4. Rev. Sun Myung Moon
5. Fidel Castro
6. Luis Echeverria
7. Ernest Borgnine
8. Phyllis Diller
9. Clark Terry
10. Little Jimmy Dickens

Let the outrage at my moral turpitude begin.

    I could’ve sworn five of these people are already dead.

  2. Greg says:

    I’ve had Ariel Sharon and Dick Cheney for years, and they just keep hanging in there.

    • Erik Loomis says:

      I once had Sharon in there, but I realized that the Israelis were going to keep him alive forever so it seemed like a bad bet. He’s the only person I ever took off the list without dying.

    • Colin says:

      You think that’s bad, I have two men who are 103 and 104 respectively, and they haven’t died. (They’re the top two on the list).

      1. Elliott Carter
      2. Oscar Niemeyer
      3. Billy Graham
      4. Zsa-Zsa Gabor
      5. Luis Echeverria
      6. Etta James
      7. Abe Vigoda
      8. Nancy Reagan
      9. Nelson Mandela
      10. Margaret Thatcher

  3. JimmyC says:

    Is it still the CW that Vo Nguyen Giap will never actually die?

  4. commie atheist says:

    Either Anthony Kennedy (76) or Ruth Bader Ginsburg (79) will die this year. Mark my words.

  5. Pinko Punko says:

    Isn’t Olivia de Havilland still alive?

  6. You can’t just put down “Al Qaeda’s #3″ ten times, I guess…

  7. Tobruk says:

    I have Eric Loomis’ mother on my death list.

      Man, that is completely uncalled for, you unmitigated asshole!

      It’s not even vaguely funny, unless you’re a right wing troll who revels in the misery of others so that you can forget what a miserable excuse for a human being you are.

  8. actor212 says:

    You left off Mickey Rooney, who seems to be a slam dunk to reach the Great Beyond.

  9. Nick says:

    By putting the king of Thailand on your list — at number 1 no less — you have made it illegal to read this blog anywhere in that country, and anyone who forwards this link could be considered for upwards of 20 years in jail.

  10. Bill Murray says:

    Generalissimo Francisco Franco?

  11. ed says:

    Art Donovan
    Andy Dick

  12. Robermax says:

    what do you have against Clark Terry and Ernest Bourgine?

  13. Gus says:

    What a horrible, horrible person you are. And why is Billy Graham not on this list?

  14. actor212 says:

    If you haven’t locked your picks in, Erik, you forgot Gary “Terminal Brain Cancer” Carter.
