Celebrity Deaths – August

Adam Carolla’s voice had a busy month in August. (Although I preferred Norm MacDonald’s voice). A lot of unexpected celebs kicked off and caught us all off guard Once again, some of the perennial favorites are hanging in there and defying the odds. Tell your friends and tell your neighbors to come check out this summary of dead celebs. Apparently, people like reading it so much, they are trying to buy the company! That is also why my title is so simple this month. Apparently, the most hits I ever get are due to the death posts so, let’s see what I can do with a nice simple, straight forward title.
