    the sun is shining, 

    my burrito is giving me heartburn, but all is good in the hood because the First Annual Buzzblog Death Pool is on the air.

    my official title at Buzznet is Community Manager, and what a better way to bring the community together than through death?

    and since the Gorilla Mask seems to have dropped the ball in regards to the Death Pool, i have taken it upon myself to carry the torch.

    so what i have done, quite cleverly if i do say so myself, is utilized four different parts of Buzznet to orchestrate this particular Death Pool.

    what you do first if youre a Buzznet user (if youre not a user, the very first thing you do is sign up – it takes about 30 seconds) is write your list into your journal and before you hit Save make sure to use the buzzword “death pool 2006”.

    then you number your likely suspects from 1-10.

    #10 is the person who you think is most likely to kick it.

    if that person dies in 2006 you get 10 points, etc

    then you find pictures of these 10 people and post them on your picture page.

    then you put a comment on the Buzzblog post (http://www.buzznet.com/buzzblog/9295/) with your list of 10 – this prevents cheating since you cannot edit your comments.

    then you get on your knees and pray for death!

    just kidding.

    sorta.

    heres my list

    10. Dick Cheney
    9. Gerald Ford
    8. Abe Vigoda
    7. The Queen of England
    6. Mickey Rooney
    5. Michael Jackson
    4. Elizabeth Taylor
    3. Les Paul
    2. Dick Clark
    1. Tom Delay

    there will be a winner and that winner will get a prize.
