2008 Ghoul Pool - Seeking Heaven's Gate in 2008

My 2007 Ghoul Pool had just one successful entry – Tammy Faye Messner. But that’s better than my 2006 list, where everyone survived the year. We’ll see how accurate my prognostications are for this year’s pool, “Seeking Heaven’s Gate in 2008.”

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. Betty Ford – Longs to establish the Heaven branch of the Betty Ford Clinic.
  2. Elizabeth Edwards – There goes John Edwards’ lone remaining vote.
  3. Barron Hilton – Assassinated by granddaughter Paris Hilton, who then sues to get her inheritance back from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation.
  4. Billy Graham – He was scheduled to die in 2007, but his wife took his slot. He won’t be denied his trip through the pearly gates in 2008.
  5. Vice-President Dick Cheney – His fifth and final heart attack is fatal when doctors can’t figure out which of his bunkers he’s holed up in.
  6. Karl Malden – Successfully auditions for a role in “A Casket Named Desire”
  7. Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf – A total of 377 groups claim responsibility for his assassination.
  8. Dick Clark – Waits till the end of the year, expiring during “New Year’s Dying Eve”
  9. Andy Griffith – Already has plans to employ Don Knotts as his deputy.
  10. Sir Edmund Hillary – Killed by the Himalayan Abominable Snowman.
And now, for this year’s wild card entry…Sean Preston Federline. He will be split in two during a tug-of-war during a custody battle between parents Britney Spears and Kevin Federline.

Mountain Man gives you one down this year - looks like you are slightly ahead of pace from last year! I run a ghoulpool, and invite you to check it out for 2009: www.GhoulPool.us. Not sure where you play now, but more are always welcome at mine.

Happy Ghouling,
Dr. Death
