RULES (Taken from other thread)
I propose we each name three celebrities and receive a point for each one that dies before the end of the year. A bonus point will be awarded if the deceased in under 60 years old and two bonus points if they are under 30.

The celebrities should be well-known enough to be recognised by most members so, for example, some obscure conceptual artist from Turkmenistan should be challenged by the other members. We should probably rule out someone who is only famous for being the oldest person alive in America, or wherever!

1) Lindsay Lohan - (23) that drugged up wh00re that we all love
2) Latoya Jackson - (53) the outcast of the Jackson family
3) Arlen Specter - (79) no explanation required, I assume

Sorry, just realised Ournamestoolong took Castro already (thanks for taking over b/t/w) so I'll choose American comedienne Joan Rivers instead.

Kudos to Nags, who will probably win the 2010 Dead Pool, seeing as none of the others have shown signs of death.

In the light of this and your comment on my monarchy debate (http://www.debate.org...), if the Queen is bumped off by Irish republicans next Tuesday, the Garda will be knocking on your door Wednesday morning at the latest!

that's if those summons i'm due don't land before then :) and i've nothing against the poor ole queen myself, brian.. besides what's being robbed from us to accomodate her.. but most people over here'd put the chances of something being tried as very high. she's a brave woman.

and she's staying in the de valera sweet of whatever hotel it is...
