2007 Ghoul Pool - Hoping for Heaven in 2007

Once again I have written a “ghoul pool.” This one is different from many, where everyone makes their picks and puts their money into a pot. Mine is just for fun and I try to create a humorous entry about each one. All of my 2006 entries are still alive. I’m only making a few changes in this year’s pool, “Hopin’ for Heaven in 2007.”

By the way, in case you're interested in checking the vital signs of your favorite celebrity, I highly recommend the Dead People Server site.

And now, for this year's entries...
  1. Ross Perot – After death, he has a change of heart and attempts to negotiate a free trade agreement between Heaven and Earth.
  2. Tammy Faye Bakker, aka Tammy Faye Messner – Finds out whether mascara is allowed on the other side.
  3. Billy Graham – His family is fussing about where he’s going to be buried, but Billy’s not going to care.
  4. Henry Kissinger – He’s as dead as the Mideast Peace Process.
  5. Karl Malden – He’s going to find out if St. Peter accepts American Express.
  6. Paul Harvey – “And now you know…the REAL rest of the story!”
  7. Dick Clark – It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was the last of Times Square for Dick Clark.
  8. Monty Hall – Finds out how hard it is to make a deal on the other side…
  9. Andy Griffith – Relocates to Heaven, R.F.D.
  10. Sir Edmund Hillary – He was the first man to stand at both the North and South Poles, as well as the summit of Mount Everest. Not only that, he received the Noble Order of the Garter from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. He wants to add the Pearly Gates to his list of conquests.
And now, for this year’s wild card entry…Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards. Even if he doesn’t really die, he’s going to do his best to look dead, and we like that kind of effort.
