We're all his puppets now.
See rules etc. in the first post.
You can check your selections here (red indicates unconfirmed 2016 selections):
And of course many congratulations to DBD333, winner of the 2016 Donald Trump's Barber Memorial Dead Pool!
All new players welcome. The rules are simple: ten choices, one your Joker (double points). You get 100 - your choice's age if they die (e.g. if they are 56, you will get 44 points). Choices made up to January 9th will be active immediately; after that, we return to the usual anti-ambulance-chasing rule of a one-week wait until you get the points.
If you made new selections on the old thread, I will amend the spreadsheet accordingly. If you want to continue with last year's choices, just let me know here. If you want to play for the first time, post your selections here.
I'll ask the mods to post a link to the google doc listing selections when it's ready.

Also, cinquecento is a model of FIAT.
No changes for me, either, thanks. I'm airynothing when not in party clobber.
Same as on the 2016 thread the other day:

Same as last year except I will have Charles Bradley instead of Richard O Sullivan and Leah Bracknell instead of Shirley Williams. I have mentioned these changes in the last thread.
I neglected to make Paul Simon my joker, PR. Should I repost my list?
