Dead Pool Round 92: like flies, I tell ya!

John Glenn, perhaps getting a more interesting and yet more cosmic view of the Earth today. Congratulations to RimrockR!

The dicks are falling thick and fast. Who will be next? If I knew that, I’d be down the betting shop.

Let us begin.

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. Plus (Pupster’s Rule) no picking someone who’s only famous for being the oldest person alive.

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? Also, make sure you have a correct spelling of your choice somewhere in your comment. These threads get longish and I use search to figure out if we have a winner.

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’ve won before, send me your address again. I don’t keep good records.

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

The winner, if the winner chooses to entrust me with a mailing address, will receive an Official Certificate of Dick Winning and a small original drawing on paper suffused with elephant shit particles. Because I’m fresh out of fairy shit particles.

I am going to pick Hillary.

Drudge had a picture of her with Hairy Reed in which she looked awkwardly about to fall over if Harry hadn’t kept her from doing so. I am wondering if she has Parkinson’s or something similar which, along with the disappointment of knowing,

Hillary Clinton will never be President

will finish her off shortly after Innaguration Day.

I just now, this very minute, escaped from the dankest, darkest dungeon where LesterIII had me shackled about my wrists and ankles amongst a most horrible collection of skeletal remains. Remains undoubtedly of past Dead Pool foes who failed to free themselves from their cold, steely irons so they could be the first to pick. Well LesterIII, you may have thwarted me this time, but know I am wise to your evil and will not let it happen again. Glen Campbell, just because.

Well, since I saw pictures of him with Bush the elder the other day, and he weren’t lookin’ good, I have to pick

Robert ‘Bob’ Dole who is 93 years young.

Sorry Bob, but I needed someone new and interesting.

A toast to your ingenuity, Fritz! Few have actually escaped the Alul Pokol estate and made it to a keyboard with working hands. It wasn’t the dankest, nor the darkest, but I appreciate the complement. The minions responsible for ensuring the security of your accommodations have been fed to their replacements, and counseled on the nature of professional responsibility. I have also retained the services of a new landscape architect with interesting personal views regarding fun.

Until next time, sir.
