Round 34: Friday the 13th Edition

Montenegro has made hisself a double dick winner with Ernest Borgnine. Go on. Ask him what he’s going to do with all that dick.

Right! Line up and pick your old coot!

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. Also, please don’t kill anybody.

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 it gets here!

sock it to me

A. Schuyler Dunning (m.1946–1952, divorced)

Nice to see that she remarried at age 87, though.

 


Comment from Redd
Time: July 15, 2012, 10:12 pm

Uh, oh. Nix what I said about her last marriage:

On April 29, 2004, her 87th birthday, Holm married opera singer Frank Basile, age 41.[6] The couple met in October 1999 at a fundraiser at which Basile was hired to sing. Soon after their marriage, Holm and Basile sued to overturn the irrevocable trust that was created in 2002 by Daniel Dunning, Holm’s younger son. The trust was ostensibly set up to shelter Holm’s financial assets from taxes, although Basile contended the real purpose of the trust was to keep him away from her money. The lawsuit began a five-year battle with her sons, which cost millions of dollars, and according to an article in The New York Times, left Holm and her husband with a fragile hold on their home, which Holm purchased for $10,000 cash in 1953 from her film earnings, and which is now believed to be worth at least $2,000,000

There will be less Gore in literature, unless Global Warming Al steps up his game.

I’m stepping up and picking Taylor Swift, the country singer…

It appears that she’s dating a member of the Kennedy clan, so I suspect that it won’t be long now…

Al Freeman Jr died. I wonder if people remember how popular he was at one time.

So, Johnny Pesky went to the great outfield in the sky. You know what that means?

Johnny Pesky sounded like a good guy, Pablo. I’d like to see you win the prize if only so we get a new pool on Friday. I hate it when we get a weekend winner on Saturday after only one day but I also hate when get a dead pool that drags on for months.

Mrs. Compton: Yay, Gore Vidal, surprised no one had the bastard.

I had him in Round 34 (the last one). He was only picked four times in the first 30 rounds.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
