    With the recent rash of celebrity deaths it seems like we need a running thread rather than cluttering up the board with multiple death threads.

    If Abe Vigoda dies, is that like a triple word score in Scrabble?

    Would this include celebrities who die running?

    Yes unless it's running for office in which case it would go on political thread

    I think you're going to have a jurisdiction problem if the death involves a celebrity running (for office), who dies while running (ie in Nikes).

    Re: Celebrity Death Running Thread - Fargo actor RIP edition

    Hell, the past couple of weeks have been like one of those "very special" Love Boat episodes where they actually take everybody on the cruise.
    Karl Malden and Gale Storm will be lovers separated for decades, reunited by chance. They ultimately realize they were fraternal twins given up for adoption.
    Fred Travelena would be Gopher's "crazy uncle" who is heavy into the booze, but is trying to get Gopher to get him a gig on the boat.
    Michael Jackson would play a Michael Jackson impersonator who is travelling to Mexico for a controversial surgery. He befriends Vickie of course, because he likes kids.
    Ed MacMahon would be Isaac's old football coach who cut him because he thought he had a bad attitude, but after a few drinks and a sitdown between Ed and Captain Stubing, MacMahon realizes Isaac was just acting that way because his father was dying at the time, and the only way Isaac could help his family care for his father was to get kicked off the team. His father never let him quit anything.
    Farrah Fawcett would play a woman who Doc once got hammered with one night in Vegas, the two of them were so blitzed they forgot they were married. Farrah tracks Doc down asking for a divorce. Doc is like, whattya kidding? You're hot. No way. They end up getting drunk together in Mexico and wake up and find themselves divorced.
    Billy Mays comes aboard, playing a guy with a "great new product idea" who mortgaged his house to pay for the trip with the intention of getting Harve Presnell (RIP) to buy and market his product. Billy gets help buttering up Presnell from Julie.

    Man, the bit Bill Hicks did on him and Yul Brynner was just brilliant.

    That's awesome, seriously, but where does David Carradine fit in?

    OK, GB, besides you, lono and me, how many people here do you think know who that is?

    To be perfectly honest, if not for Hicks' routine on him, I wouldn't have had a clue either.
