Thursday Thirteen #22

Gone...or Maybe Not??

My girlfriend Anne and I have this macabre game we play every once in a while. It's called "Dead or Alive: Your Call". We think of celebrity names and try to guess if they are still alive or deceased.

Oh...c'mon....it's sick...it's fun...it's entertainment! Really. Have a bash and see if you can pick out who is Living or Deceased from this list of 13 (answers to follow):

1. Robert Palmer (musician "Addicted to Love")

2. Johnny Bench (Cincinnati Reds baseball Hall of Famer)

3. Betty White (actress most notably from Golden Girls)

4. David Cassidy (pop teen star)

5. Beverly DeAngelo (actress from "Christmas Vacation" with Chevy Chase)

6. Johnny Carson (talk show host)

7. Mohammad Ali (champion prize fighter)

8. Gloria Steinem (activist, author, National Women's Hall of Famer)

9. Peter Benchley (author Jaws)

10. Francis Ford Coppola (director The Godfather)

11. Julia Child (world famous chef and TV icon)

12. Jimmy Carter (president)

13. Elizabeth Taylor (actress)

and one trick one:

14. Cat Stevens (musician)


Ok troops.....no using google or wiki or anything. Give it your best shot!!
I'll post the answers tomorrow!

Crap. I got lost after Robert Palmer.

This game's too hard for me!

Joely Sue Burkhart said...

What a great game! I admit to confusion on most of them. Happy TT!

Just a quick comment about your comment on my list. I've had anxiety issues since Brennan got sick. It's just higher than normal because I had a severe reaction to a new med and Riley has a concussion. Last week sucked.

HUGS!!

MamaGeek said...

I totally SUCK at these games. And based on my answers and your other commenters, I'd say I was wrong at all levels! :)

I was just telling a friend today that I need to rent "The Godfather." I have never seen it. I am not into "mobster movies," but it is such a classic, I need to bear through it and watch the thing.

"Macabre?" I resemble that remark! Lately I've been ruminating about The Curse of Bob Newhart. Tom Poston (who appeared on both Bob's famous sitcoms) and two of his TV wives (Mary Frann and now Suzanne Pleshette) are gone. I would never accuse local hero Bob Newhart of wrong doing. But still, am I the only one who sees a supernatural connection? I am? Well, then, never mind. Anne

Boy, I have no idea - plus I cheated and looked at the answers (blushing). Great idea though!

Happy TT!
