Surprise! You're Dead!

Hey, appear on The Simpsons, and you die. Your own fault,



Farrah throws a monkey wrench in said theory, but I'm sure someone even lazier than I can Kevin Baconize her.


okjimm said...

... and I guess Walter Cronkite is seriously ill, too. Which isn't all that surprising, being that he is also seriously old.

Hey, is Elvis still dead?

Agi said...

I hope Mike Patton doesn't die now that you posted this video.

Spartacus said...

By your math, Paul McCartney should be dying soon, too.

puddy said...

mmmmm.... baconize....

Utah Savage said...

I worked with Kevin Bacon. And we're both alive. Go figure.

Dean Wormer said...

I love that Simpson's with Jackson. If only he always took himself that un-serious.

Randal Graves said...

okjimm, I think he retired. Double shifts at Burger King were taking their toll.

agi, if he does, then I'm going to post videos of every politician I can find.

spartacus, the Curse has already claimed George Harrison.

puddy, a wonderful, magical food.

utah, neither of you have appeared on the Simpsons.

dean, that's a great episode that teaches us the dangers of wearing pink shirts to work.

sunshine said...

Phil whats his name too. Ex-Saturday night live guy. I know that's awhile back now but hey... he's dead too.
Didn't Kelsy Grammer have a heart attack last year?
Phil Heartman? Is that his name?
*Mass is pulling his "Mum, Mum, Mum" again... gotta dash!

sunshine said...

Hartman... not Heartman. It was bugging me so I came back.

Christopher said...

Why is it the fun people (Farrah Fawcett) and the talented people (Bea Arthur and Michael Jackson), always seem to be the first ones to die?

But evil filth, like 4-heart attacks Cheney, and the 400lbs. junkie and pedophile Limbaugh, just go on, and on, and on.

It's fucked up, man.

Tom Harper said...

R.I.P. Michael and Farah.

Great YouTube; that's my favorite Faith No More song, along with "Don't Look At Me I'm Ugly in the Morning" and their cover version of War Pigs. I like their version better than the Black Sabbath original. If that doesn't get me banished from the World Heavy Metal Society, nothing will.

MadMike said...

I'm with Christopher on this one!

sunshine said...

Yep! Christopher is dead on! *pardon the pun*....
Great comment!

Randal Graves said...

sunshine, the man behind Troy McClure and Lionel Hutz. A true genius. Sniff.

christopher, c'mon man, you know better than this. Cheney is at least part robot and the Pill Popping Pederast is merely the offspring of The Blob.

tom, great tunes, all. I'd have to say the best from King for A Day is The Gentle Art of Making Enemies. I love their cover of War Pigs, but given your metal cred (you're the only other dude besides me 'round these parts that listens to the crap!) I'll overlook your anti-Sabbath blasphemy.

madmike and sunshine, see my comment above, neither are human!

Kvatch said...

Statistics just don't lie! (What was that sample size again?) ;-)

susan said...

We watched the Simpson's longer than any show but I had to find a list after this one. I may be wrong but most of them are still alive:

1. Dustin Hoffman as Lisa's substitute teacher.
2. 'The Who' did 'Won't Get Fooled Again' (well, maybe they didn't)
3. Star Trekers Leonard Nimoy, in 'Marge and the Monorail' and George Takei as Akira, the Japanese owner of The Happy Sumo.
4. Elton John visited Apu.
5. Authors Stephen King in 'Insane Clown Poppy' and J.K. Rowling (missed that one)
6. Michael in a bittersweet one.
7. Bob Hope with Lisa at a talent show.
8. James Earl Jones doing my favorite reading of 'The Raven'
9. Elizabeth Taylor said Maggie's first word, 'Daddy'.
10. Most of the Beatles - Paul, George and Ringo.

The there were: Mickey Rooney, Michelle Pfeiffer, Meryl Streep, David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Metallica, Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day but no Farah. Maybe it's just as dangerous to not have been on the show.

Moxie said...

Susan has poked holes in your theory.

It seems everyone named Susan is smarter than you.

At least as far as I have seen.

Chef Cthulhu said...

As I read on Twitter - Patrick Swayze must be happy that McMahon, Farah and Jacko all went ... he's at least got until the next threesome.

RIP Jacko-plastico-wierd-ass-kiddie-sleepover-with-porn-monkey-owning-whatever...

Incredibly unmoved by it all...

Beach Bum said...

I agree with Christopher as well. Hell, George H.W. Bush just jumped from a plane and he is in his 80's.

Forgive me for saying this but while is son occupied the White House I often daydreamed about the Japanese pilot that shot H. W. Bush down during WW2 had aimed a little better short circuiting Chimpy's existence.

Snave said...

There are lots of celebrities I hope your Simpsons curse doesn't work on, Randal!

Here is some ludicrously lazy Baconizing of Farrah Fawcett:

A friend of mine was in a few scenes of Animal House when we were in college at U of Oregon. He is one of the guys kneeling in the "Thank you sir, may I have another" scene. In this picture, he is the guy in front on the left:

My friend went on to become a minister. His dad was a minister, and when this picture appeared in an issue of Playboy magazine, the dad did not approve. The capper was when a college roommate of mine, who was gay, produced a gay porno magazine with this picture appearing in a grainy blow-up black and white. We laughed for hours, as we had both known this guy since we were all about 12. I told my friend in the picture about his picture appearing in a gay porno magazine, and his response was "Well, at least somewhere out there, I am turning SOMEONE on."

We never told my friend's dad about the gay porno, and it never involved blackmail.

Anyway, 1) my friend met Kevin Bacon during the filming of "Animal House" , and 2)this same friend used to admit to me that he thought Farrah Fawcett was hot during those years we liked to watch her in "Charlie's Angels".

What, that doesn't count? Sorry! 8-)

Beach Bum, excellent comment! In that same sort of vein, I made a scene and embarrassed my daughters a couple of years ago when we were at a Portland mall in some tacky gift shop. There was a t-shirt for sale with a depiction of a somber-looking Bush Senior, with the caption "I KNOW I should have pulled out..." I laughed so hard at that shirt I am sure other customers thought I was high or something. Well, I wasn't high, but seeing the shirt did cause some real euphoria!

Snave said...

And in case that attempt at providing a link for the picture didn't work, just Google images for "Thank you sir may I have another Animal House" and you're there! 8-)

Randal Graves said...

kvatch, oh, dozens, at least! Remember Strat-O-Matic? Donnell Nixon, 1988 Giants, 78 AB but a .346 BA. Always batted him third. ;-)

susan, but many are also dead: Phil Hartman, Steve Allen, Barry White, Jack Lemmon, Paul Winfield, a couple of the Ramones, George Harrison, Linda McCartney, Stephen Jay Gould, Rodney Dangerfield, Johnny Cash, the list goes on for a few more!

moxie, most people with a name are smarter than me, so that's not that much of a revelation.

chef, if I had listened to his music, I'd probably be bummed, but since I didn't, there ya go. Of course, I'd have no problem making fun of Layne Staley either, and I love AIC.

BB, you're completely forgiven. The world would be a better place with fewer Company/oilmen. Sure, there's always a replacement, but for a few precious moments, the world would be 0.0092% less evil.

snave, on a technical level, that doesn't count at all, but what a great story! ;-)

kirby said...

Since no one else has done it, I can Bacon her in one move. She was in Altman's "Dr. T and the Women" with Richard Gere, who played himself in the Simpsons episode where Lisa goes Buddhist.

Freida Bee, MD said...

Whew. I'm glad you all did the heavy lifting.

I can't believe Bart never had a Farrah Fawcett poster on his wall. That comic book guy has one. I'm certain of that--even if they've never shown it.

Randal Graves said...

kirby, if I was rich, I would send you a fabulous and expensive prize.

FB, what guy with a master's degree in folklore and mythology doesn't have a Farrah poster on the wall?

Dr. Zaius said...

Now Karl Malden is dead. It's like an epidemic!
