Newest Stiffs:

  • Ginger Baker

    Ginger Baker · 80

    August 19th, 1939 — October 6th, 2019

    His first solo album was Ginger Baker at his Best and his last was just called Why? If that isn't some hardcore rockstar shit right there, we don't know what is.

  • Rip Taylor

    Rip Taylor · 84

    January 13th, 1935 — October 6th, 2019

    His nickname was "the crying comedian", and his signature move was throwing confetti around. Yeah - we got nothing.

  • Diahann Carroll

    Diahann Carroll · 84

    July 17th, 1935 — October 4th, 2019

    She was the first black woman to star in a TV show (in 1968) in a non-servant role. She won an Academy Award for Best Actress. She worked with women at the LA Mission for decades. And she survived breast cancer. All of that is incredibly impressive, but there's just no getting around it: that is a RIDICULOUS way to spell Diane.

  • Jacques Chirac

    Jacques Chirac · 86

    November 29th, 1932 — September 26th, 2019

    The only thing he had more of than corruption charges were girlfriends. Can't decide if we like him or not.

  • Barron Hilton

    Barron Hilton · 91

    October 23rd, 1927 — September 19th, 2019

    Built a hotel empire, was huge in aviation, started the American Football League, which eventually merged with the NFL and created the Suoer Bowl, had 8 kids, 15 grandkids, and was a solid philanthropist. And somehow his vapid granddaughter gets all the press. That SUCKS.

Guess the Stiff!

The Congressman (R-AZ) holds a special place in our hearts for his announcement from the House floor on June 5, 1998 that Bob Hope had died. You always were a schmuck, Stumpy, but thanks for the traffic.
