Happy Birthday to Two People Who Are Genuinely Fat; Not Just Called Fat

For some reason we have some sort of fascination with stories of people who are dead and remain unburied, so here's one more for your reading enjoyment.

Once again this has nothing to do with the people whose birthdays we are celebrating, save for the fact that they are one year closer to being that rotting corpse.

Today is somebody's Birthday! Whose Birthday? Former Prime Minister of Israel Ariel Sharon's Birthday. How Old Is He? 1,2,3,4... 80! And Never been Kissed By... Death

Ariel Sharon's name appears on 7 Death Pool rosters

  • Sharon has been widowed twice. Shortly after becoming a military instructor, he married his first wife, Margalit, with whom he had a son, Gur. Margalit died in a car accident in May 1962. Their son, Gur, died in October 1967 after a friend shot him while they were playing with a rifle. After Margalit's death, Sharon married her younger sister, Lily. They had two sons, Omri and Gil'ad. Lily Sharon died of cancer in 2000.
With a family history like that, you have to be surprised he's survived in a vegetative state for more than 2 years.

Today is somebody else's Birthday! Whose Birthday? Actress Elizabeth Taylor's Birthday. How Old Is She? 1,2,3,4... 76! And Never been Kissed By... Death

Elizabeth Taylor's name appears on "I Am Ready to Meet My Maker's", "A Time to Kill's", "The South Shall Rise (from the Grave) Again's", and "Do Not Resuscitate's" rosters
  • In the early 1980s she moved to Bel-Air, which is her current home. The fenced and gated property is on tour maps sold at street corners and is frequently passed by tour guides.
Does this make her the "Fresh Princess of Bel-Air?"

... And Many More!
