    Alright! You demanded an improved Dead Pool and here it is!

    As always, your task is to pick ten (10) celebrities from any venue you believe will not live to see New Year's Day 2012. Any ten famous, infamous, notorious folks who will be at room temperature during the 2012 Rose Parade.

    As suggested by Noose, this year's Dead Pool will feature this caveat: you will receive one (1) point for every year the stiff you choose is under the age of 100! Someone 75 years old dies, you get 25 points. Someone 98 years old dies? Oh! That's a two (2) pointer.

    I will again furnish the prize. A brand new car? No. An all expenses paid trip for two to Aruba? Wrong again. The prize is a Fiestaware Pedestal Bowl in your choice of color!

    Have fun and good luck!

    So who wins? The person with the most points or the person who had the most deaths on their list?

    If there is no toaster oven involved, I don't play. I have standards.

    For those that picked Zsa Zsa, you better wait to make sure she survives 2010 first.

    goldcatt, Betty White will live forever.

    I see no surprise celebrities deaths, like a Justin Bieber or Lady Gaga or Kanye. Come on, make it interesting!

    I don't need a bowl... I could use a Corvette. I'll play if the prize is a Corvette. Otherwise, mums the word.
