I've already submitted my list, but television has given me an idea for another. I just watched a rerun of The Simpsons tenth 'Treehouse of Horror' Halloween special, in which Homer's Y2K incompetence causes the destruction of the world (summary here). In the end, Lisa and Marge leave for Mars on a spaceship full of the world's best and brightest, destined to start a new society, while Homer and Bart end up on a different spaceship, also full of celebrities, but headed for the Sun.
Anyway, it occurred to me that the people on the second ship would make an excellent alternative list for the Amish Tech Support Dead Pool. Here they are, in order of appearance:
There are ten people on the Simpsons list, while the Amish limit is nine, but it seems fair to allow one more in this case, since most are relatively young and healthy, though several are fat, Perot is old, and Love has (to put it politely) lifestyle issues. Even if it cannot count as an official entry, I'll be keeping track.Posted by Dr. Weevil at December 23, 2002 06:51 PM
