Round 39: Nobody look at Steve edition

Before we get started, I’d like to take a moment to express my deep appreciation for Steve. I’m proud to call Steve a reader, commenter on my blog and — yes — my friend.

Yup, that spooky bastard Steve has just won his fourth Dead Pool with Alex Karras. So…just…for god’s sake watch yourselves and nobody kneel on Steve’s dick and I’m pretty sure we’ll all make it through another Dead Pool.


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!

Since Nina picked him last pool and as far as I know she has not been “disappeared” by the Secret Service [although given the agent that was found passed out drunk on a street corner last night in Florida, and who when woken by the cops tried to fight his way out; they may not be operating at peak efficiency], I will pick Buraq Hussein Obama, Lightworker and Hero of the Leftist Revolution [Bees P Upon Him]. Hopefully from the shock of getting his gluteal musculature handed to him at the next presidential debate.

Incidentally: steve’s pick of Alex Karras was one of the three latest winning picks (11 days into round 38). The others were Clarence Clemmons by Princess Bernie (11 days into round 16), and Johnny Pesky by pablo (12 days into round 34).

It was also one of the “quickest kills” (1 day). There have been three same-day winning picks (Gary Coleman, John Wooden, and Nick Charles), but Coleman and Wooden were picked and died day 1, while Charles was picked and died day 2. Seve Ballesteros, Kim Jong-il, and Chuck Colson were picked day 2 and died day 3.

This is the first late-pick/quick-kill win.

(The slowest kill was Liz Taylor – 150 days after being picked by Harbqll two days into round 10A.)

Here is the breakdown of winning picks by days in:

0-21, 1-6, 2-4, 3-1, 4-1, 5-1, 7-1, 11-2, 12-1.

Some Veg, you’ll have to make do with Larry King, I guess – assuming that Steve or somebody else doesn’t get there firstist.

BTW – no offense, Rich, but I wouldn’t’ve wasted a perfectly good pick on Uncle Hairplugs. Based on last night’s “performance”, he’s now overdue to fade slowly away into an amply-deserved obscurity. Besides, being revealed as one of history’s most ineffectual holders of one of the most ineffectual political positions in existence means he’s essentially already been dead for the last several years.

He’s always looked and mostly acted like he was dead from the collarbutton upwards for at least the last couple of decades anyway…

So – anybody know what’s the over/under line in Vegas on Steve’s next pick? I’d like to get a couple of bucks down before the weekend’s over, anyway.

I am going to change things up and operate from my speculation that after the debates debacle the Obama administration is desperate for something to talk about. They really can’t do much for an economic October surprise since no one seems to be buying the cooked numbers on unemployment.

This leaves something in the foreign policy arena. They are smarting from the Libya assassination of our ambassador. This will stay in the press till something pushes it into ‘forget me land’

The best for Obama is to have Assad of Syria die. This will give the U.S. an entry into the country on the premise of chasing WMD and providing aid to the new government. It’s a great chance to make speeches and insist that our policy on the Middle East ‘is-too’ working.

So the CIA will be tasked with ‘helping’ the rebel forces rub him out. * Failure may be an option here now that Uncle Joe has thrown the CIA under the bus, but I think that Obama is desperate enough to try it.

So, Assad, by a bomb.

(Converting everything to EDT, which is four hours behind WBT:

thefritz picked at 11:42 PM EDT 10/13.

I kinda like the original personalized certificate if shipping the Dick is starting to drain you. It reminds me of a certificate I once made up for the “Oliver Wendell Shagnasty Award for Inventive Applied Malice”. It is a long story, but the reason of the award was “for his contributions to the degradation of the toilet habits in Western Iceland”.

There is another alternative. We have a chain store here called World Market, and they do online and mail order. They have Heinz Spotted Dick for $4.99 a can. A gift certificate is a lot easier to send, or order through them. Or you could look around for a chain here that sell’s Auntie’s and get gift certificates to them.

I have enough dick to cover winnings so far

Welp, that’s the apex, kids. The rest of Al Gore’s internet is downhill from here.

No way, thefritz. The game isn’t fun without prizes. And I already have your dick.

Waiting for my absentee ballot now. If I remember correctly, they’re postage paid. Might be wrong about that…only done it once before.

Once you’ve got a dick in hand, another is redundant. The original weez art is the prize.

So, Ms Weasel, you are still allowed to vote in the good ole USA even though you became a citizen of that other place? Good on you.

And the ballot is postage paid. I have mine sitting right here on my computer desk. Just finished it this morning. Besides, Mrs Mooch had her picture taken with hers just before she mailed it.

Multiple dicks, I have your dick, a dick in hand….it’s beginning to sound like a weasel pron site……
(I agree with Pable – the original SW art is the real prize!! Mine has a place of honor on the cork board by the computer….

They have ‘spotted dick’ in cans in the local Winn Dixie’s in Florida, so maybe just a gift certificate would do? I think the brand for the Winn Dixie dicks is ‘Heinz’, not ‘Aunty’, so it may not have the same feel to it.

BTW: what _is_ the shelf life for spotted dick? Do they print expiration dates on the can? How can you tell if a dick has gone bad? What happens if you eat a bad dick? Do they get soft and start to ooze, or dry up and get really, _really_ hard?

Joe Medicine Crow, who I met some years ago near the Custer battlefield (and is featured in the Ken Burns series “The War”).

We have a news feed from Beijing, and I learned of Sihanouk the Ruthless’s demise quite some time ago.

I thought it might be fun to cheat, but my better angel won.

Another perennial name is popping up – Fidel Castro. Rumors of news from Havana are flying. If he’s not dead already, he might be a good pick in the pool on Friday.

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.
