Round 42: it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!


Nanny 1 wins dick with Larry Hagman. Here’s someone’s nice personal anecdote about Hagman. Aggregating all the stories I read, he sounds like he was bugfuck crazy. But in a nice way.

Okay. Onward and downward!

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.

The prize? Still a fabulous two-pack of Aunty’s Spotted Dick…!

The list of those who are active threats to our poor country and Constitution is growing rapidly, bipartisan, and mostly protected by the Coercive Organs of the State. *sigh* So I will take one of their likely victims instead.

I’ll take General Carter Ham, former Commander of AFRICOM, who reportedly was immediately relieved from command when he prepared to send help to our people in Benghazi after being ordered not to by the National Command Authority. He was brought home days later, and has retired. I suspect that he knows too much that could be harmful to “Teh Won”.

So I’ll pick Hugh Hefner due to greater than 4-hour ‘complications’

Steve: your chances are excellent. Hugo has largely disappeared from public view since the election, and has just gone to Cuba for “hyperbaric oxygen therapy” (a well-known quack treatment for cancer and other incurable ailments). There is speculation that he won’t even make it to his re-inauguration on 10 January. See The mysterious case of the missing president.
