Round 27: the Summer of Dick


A dick for a dick – FGW wins it with Dick Clark.

Eighty-two. I’d've guessed older. Something about trying to look forever young will do that.

Okay, here we go…!

0. Rule Zero (AKA Steve’s Rule): your pick has to be living when picked. Also, nobody whose execution date is circled on the calendar.

1. Pick a celebrity. Any celebrity — though I reserve the right to nix picks I never heard of (I don’t generally follow the Dead Pool threads carefully, so if you’re unsure of your pick, call it to my attention).

2. We start from scratch every time. No matter who you had last time, or who you may have called between rounds, you have to turn up on this very thread and stake your claim.

3. Poaching and other dirty tricks positively encouraged.

4. Your first choice sticks. Don’t just blurt something out, m’kay?

5. It’s up to you to search the thread and make sure your choice is unique. I’m waayyyy too lazy to catch the dupes. Popular picks go fast.

6. The pool stays open until somebody on the list dies. Feel free to jump in any time. Noobs, strangers, drive-bys and one-comment-wonders — all are welcome.

7. If you want your fabulous prize, you have to entrust me with a mailing address. If you don’t want the fabulous prize, you’re too smart to be a regular. It takes me forever to put them in the mail, packages go by slow boat, typically take minimum eight to ten weeks and lose the will to live along the way.

8. The new DeadPool will begin 6pm WBT (Weasel’s Blog Time) the Friday after the last round is concluded.

What do we want? Aunty’s dick! When do we want it? When somebody on the list dies!

Janna very kindly informed me of the passing of the golden-voiced Etta James. Last January, even, which makes her very dead indeed.

Ima pick Al Gore in that case; not that he is in failing health, or even particularly old. He is, however, a peculiarly detestable hypocrite and liar, which, if God is fair, which He totally is not, ought to put Algore next in line to feel the icy finger releasing his seventh chakra.

Here’s an interesting procedural question (at least to me, but I’m easily amused.) What if Venezuela announces that El Jefe Hugo has bitten the big one and admits that they’ve been holding out on the good news for a week or so? Shouldn’t the person who had his name in the pool at that time deserve their celebratory Dick? I think it would be a shame for them to miss out.

I would be willing to put in a buck or two to help cover the expense of an extra dick in that case.
