Would it be cheating to add George McGovern to the pool now? :-)

We didn't have any outright winners this year, but we did have a four-way tie.  FreeBorn, IassaFTots, NHSparky, and Mike220 correctly guessed Phyllis Diller, Dick Clark, Andy Griffith, and Joe Paterno respectively.  We still have four days left to go, so someone may get lucky and either win or tie with the others.

The most popular nominees were Fidel Castro with seven nominations, Charlie Sheen and Hugo Chavez with six, and Lindsay Lohan with five.  Prince Phillip, Zsa Zsa Gabor, and Jimmy Carter all survived the year with four votes each.

Everybody give them a round of applause.  Thanks for playing. :)

So Sparky got around to creating his 2013 Dead Pool thread the day before I posted my comment. I missed it. BFD. Who are your picks in 2013? Did you post 'em yet?

If you didn't, might wanna hop to it.  :tongue:

I was "banned" because I posted from an area of the world where I was mistaken for Dipshit Malloy. Anyone ever remember him/her ?
