    Quoted with slight changes here and there.

    Stolen shamelessly from a thread that Nett daddy started.

    FOCUS: List up to a maximum of 5 celebrities that you think will die in 2012.

    ALT-FOCUS: List any/all TiB board members you think will swim with the fishes in the coming year.



    Go on to list the manner in which the death will occur.

    The rules:

    Each correct answer will be scored 5 points.
    If you call the manner of demise, 100 points will be awarded. Unless it's painfully obvious, like natural causes or OD.
    There will be awards for various achievements, such as first death, most unlikely, weirdest, etc
    There will be a "TiB's Choice Award" for most (post) humorous, and others as we think of them.
    Only the predictions made before 2012, Pacific time, will be eligible.


    Go.



    Nettdata Edit: It should have gone without saying that if you are found to have influenced any death you've predicted, or colluded with others on their predictions, you and the colluding parties will be awarded 1,000 bonus points for dedication.

    I think Joe Paterno is a lock. Heart attack or his cancer spreads. He'll have a sad end, whatever it is.
    Bob Barker is up there in age so he has a chance. Most likely get mauled by some angry, castrated pets.

    Terry Pratchett - Sadly wanders off and dies from falling down or something equally sucky.
    Joe Paterno - Being one billion years old will do that to you.
    Urban Mayer - Realizing that Ohio State is completely over rated, and he will not have the success he did at Florida finally does his heart in.
    Alan Alda - You can't be that awesome for that long without it catching up to you.
    Charlie Sheen - Cocaine is a hell of a drug.

    From the board

    Scootah - Angry Ex finally finds out why their former husband/wife stopped returning their calls.
    Hooker - Auto erotic asphyxiation.
    Bewildered - Heroically dies defending her beloved Abu from an international flying squirrel poaching ring.
    Suapyg - Being one billion years old will do that to you.

    Bashar Al-Assad (bullet to the back of the head, keep the streak going)
    Joe Paterno (not original, but seems pretty inevitable)
    Wayne Rooney (had to pick a new entry for the 27 club, picked him over T-Pain)
    Lou Holtz (one can only hope)
    George Bush Sr. (hasn't looked well anytime I've seen him in the past 5 years or so)

    Does it have to be celebrities? Because Bashar al-Assad is a total lock.

    Fish is a thousand years old now. This HAS to he his year. Or is he dead? You see, I never know. He's like Kirk Douglas--- you keep thinking he's dead, and he pops up at an award show and knocks them dead.

    Bad taste jokes are a dead horse here.

    I was thinking Muhammad Ali as well.

    Eli Wallach - at age 96, "Tuco" from The Good the Bad and the Ugly. would have to be on short odds.

    I didn't think you would die this year, but now that I know you're still posting I'll amend my original post to say that you may possibly die due to flipping a tractor in some godforsaken swamp in the backwoods of where you live and drowning in swamp water.

    Love your work buddy but the way you live will always make you susceptable to death calls, just like the way I am will always make me fair game for the Cirrhosis of the liver calls.

    Nah, I'm betting if he goes it will be from a "Hey y'all watch this" involving booze and one or more of the following:

    a) guns
    b) power tools
    c) farming equipment (tractors, etc)
    d) fireworks/exposives

    OK, here goes:

    1) Tim Curry (a.k.a. Pennywise the dancing clown from IT) - he looks seriously ill on his photo on Wikipedia taken sometime last year. My guess would be cancer, which sucks, because I've always liked Curry as an actor; also, he has the same birthday as me, and same first two initials (and first name, if we're counting).

    2) Nelson Mandela. Natural causes. He is 93.

    3) Silvio Berlusconi. Assassinated, for putting Italy and its people in an untenable financial situation that will likely take decades to fix, if ever.

    4) Dick Cheney. Isn't it obvious? The guy has already had 5 heart attacks... Most likely either another heart attack or congestive heart failure.

    5) Sir Alex Ferguson. Stroke, following a stunning lack of anything resembling defense from his midfield and he has a stroke in the change room as a result of screaming at his players for at least 5 minutes solid.
