Tasteless? Classless? Clueless? Yes. JACK FM and pretty much everybody that works here is all of those things. In the words of Kurt Cobain, All Apologies. But then again, every year we’ve put together this Celebrity Death Pool you people have clicked thru on it, driving up our page views. So if you wanna get down to brasstacks…….this is YOU PEOPLES FAULT. And to those of you seriously incensed over this, I leave you with this thought from George Bernard Shaw.
Dying is a troublesome business: there is pain to be suffered, and it wrings one’s heart; but death is a splendid thing -a warfare accomplished, a beginning all over again, a triumph. You can always see that in their faces.
2012 in Review: Looking back at last 2012’s pool, several JACK FM employees had scores. Ironically though, all three JACK employees that had a hit, all no longer work here.
Each JACK FM employee makes three picks for the pool. One each from three tiers of celebrities.
Tier 1- Old and/or sick celebrities whose passing would be grieved, but would be of no HUGE surprise
Tier 2- Older or troublesome celebrities whose death might not be an absolute shock, but not someone who necessarily has buzzards circling above them
and Tier 3- Out of the blue, younger, seemingly healthful celebs whose death would be a shock to most.
Be sure to leave your picks at the bottom in the comments section…..
Margaret Thatcher, David Bowie, Lance Armstrong
