Happy New Year from the Grim Reaper! 2016 took some bigtimers- seven on G.R.’s 2016 list, including Zsa Zsa Gabor, Muhammad Ali, John Glenn, George Kennedy, Fidel Castro, Nancy Reagan, & Debbie Reynolds – seven of the predicted 65, and many surprises too- Prince, David Bowie, Glenn Frey, Carrie Fisher, George Michael, Alan Rickman, Gene Wilder, Abe... yes... Abe Vigoda, Antonin Scalia, Garry Shandling, Patty Duke, Merle Haggard, Doris Roberts, Morley Safer, Gordie Howe, Arnold Palmer, Joe Garagiola, Pat Summitt Janet Reno, Florence Henderson, Robert Vaughn, Alan Thicke, Craig Sager and the list goes on and on.

I hope everyone +1's the shit out of Maco's original post.

The fact that he only returns once a year for the Celebrity Death Poll is awesome. It's like he's the Brock Lesnar of CIA.

Go Maco go.

If that's the case, where are Trump, Nutting, and Sandusky?

She made no effort whatsoever. At least Milli Vanilli tried to look authentic.

I just don't understand how they can't get more than C-list celebrities for New Years' Eve celebrations on national television.

I think you could make the argument that Jennifer Lopez was by far the most relevant performer during NBC's coverage, and I truly didn't even know she made music anymore.

I just found out that the people who are shown on television spending New Years Eve in Times Square have to stand there for 18 hours wearing adult diapers. So scratch that off my list of things that I'd like to do before I die.

Just live long enough and you'll get the adult diaper experience without the crowds of drunk idiots.

I almost made the same post. Oh, the joys of caring for elderly parents and toddlers at the same time, which means I'm buying diapers both ways. It's humbling, let me tell you.

When is Bob Nutting going to make the list?
