I say Boy – you had a good run! Well played sir! Jay Double U!
So we’re down to the last eight on the Last Man Standing Death List. They are:
Total age 748.
Average age 93.5
My current list has been running since 2010 and as we’re about to enter 2017, I would like to congratulate those still existent. You have achieved!
With the death of Bond film director Guy Hamilton, my last man standing death list is now down to the “final table,” the last ten.
Carol Channing 94
Clifton James 94
Fats Domino 87
Kirk Douglas 98
Liz Dawn 75
Liz Smith 93
Olivia De Havilland 99
Prince Philip 93
Billy Graham 96
Zsa Zsa Gabor 97
It could be years yet before the last one succumbs.
Father Jim Sutton: Why is it always the good ones? You BASTARD! (shakes fist to Heaven) He could’ve been Pope! No no no, he’s dead Ted awww we’ll never see him again!
Father Ted: We’ll see him in the next world.
Father Jim Sutton: Oh yeah, sure!!
I had marked Frank out as the one most likely to win my Death List by being the last man standing, and as the second youngest on that list at 77 I had hoped he would make it. But sadly no. 38 down and 12 remaining.
