Another Possible Dead Pool Entry

I don't recall who it was, but some blogger has expressed surprise that a contestant in the Amish Tech Support Dead Pool chose Cedric the Entertainer. Surely that is because of the large number of obese comics who have died young from drug overdoses (John Belushi and some other SNL guy whose name I've forgotten) or heart trouble (John Candy). Remember: younger people count for more.

It occurs to me that an all-comic list would do better than most. Most of these are either overweight, or old, or show signs of self-loathing. (I left out Chris Rock, who doesn't.) I list them in alphabetical order by last name (or first, if I don't know the last):

  1. Jim Carrey
  2. Carrot Top
  3. Cedric the Entertainer
  4. Margaret Cho
  5. Janeane Garofalo
  6. PeeWee Herman
  7. Jerry Lewis
  8. Andy Richter
  9. Adam Sandler

Some of these may involve a bit of wishful thinking on my part.

There's still a little over two hours to the contest deadline, so anyone who wants can submit this list, as long as I get 20% of the proceeds. I've already submitted my own list.
