Batman was on 2015's list too!

Just wiki'ed some of 2015's list and I never realized Beverly Cleary was as old as she is...I thought she was a 1980's author...no, her books were written in the 50's, when she was in her 40's!

She's going to be 100 in 2016.

Added! But, Charlie isn't going anywhere. Money cures AIDS.

Added! But if he croaks, his followers have plans for his corpse:

Please let Bernie survive the year. If he dies, the number of conspiracy theories about it among his followers would exceed those of the JFK assassination.


message 20: by Ken B (new)

Ken B | 6523 comments He better hope he doesn't win the nomination. Hillary will bump him off.


message 21: by J. (new)

J. Gowin | 1450 comments With Charlie, money may cure AIDS, but it doesn't cure stupid.

If Hillary kills anyone, it won't be Bernie Sanders. It will be Bill. He'll get caught being himself. Or Hillary will do the math on the sympathy vote, and decide that his heart problems were worse than even his doctor thought.

That's why I didn't suggest Valerie Harper or Gavin McLeod, LOL!

With as many times as Daniel Craig got injured on the set of Spectre, it might be good to add a third Bond.


message 33: by Marc-Antoine (new)

Marc-Antoine | 2888 comments A lot of young ones this year...


message 34: by Marc-Antoine (new)

Marc-Antoine | 2888 comments Don Rickles


I. Clayton Reynolds (iclaytonreynolds) | 8 comments Burt Reynolds is not looking so good.


I. Clayton Reynolds (iclaytonreynolds) | 8 comments Valerie Harper.


message 37: by Ken B (new)

Ken B | 6523 comments All added!

BTW, When "I. Clayton Reynolds" tells you "Burt Reynolds is not looking so good," you have to start to wonder. Or maybe I've just read too much Agatha Christie.


message 38: by Ken B (new)

Ken B | 6523 comments Fears for Val Kilmer as he is seen wearing a tracheostomy tube after reassuring fans he is not battling throat cancer

Adding Val Kilmer!

I'm adding Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. aka Lil Wayne. Seems as safe a bet as any other.

Marc-Antoine | 2888 comments I'm gonna say the Donald Trump has been pissing off a few people...


I. Clayton Reynolds (iclaytonreynolds) | 8 comments Yeah. High assassination probability with Trump.

Ken B | 6523 comments WendyB wrote: "Gene Wilder
Mel Brooks"


That made 50! List complete!


message 49: by Ken B (new)

Ken B | 6523 comments I. Clayton Reynolds wrote: "Yeah. High assassination probability with Trump."

The highest assassination probability of any candidate is the one with the highest probability of 1) keeping Hillary from getting the Dem nomination (Bernie), 2) keeping Hillary from winning the presidency (Repub candidate) or 3) Bill (former horndog-in-chief) if he has some campaign-shattering scandal mid election season.

She's desperate for that job. She'd kill a man!
