ZOMG! So sorry, you guys, I fell asleep before I finished this post!

John McCain is dead and I am not sad. That is all. RushBabe takes the dick with one of the most fortuitous wins of all time.


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.

Nellie Ohr

Both of the Ohrs are major threats to a powerful cabal of Deep State seditionists: Bruce, formerly the highest ranking non-political-appointee DOJ official, was the inside man, and his wife Nellie was the bridge between pro-HRC / anti-DJT opposition researchers with illicit access to NSA databases. I figure “they” have Bruce under semi-control, but Nellie is the wild card. Her days (hours?) are numbered: I expect to hear she had a heart attack, stroke, or auto crash any day now. Or maybe she’ll commit Arkancide.

Might as well keep it in the family, and since weaselwannabe has already taken momma, then I’ll pick the wife … the EX-wife:

Carol (Shepp) McCain

The first wife of John McCain, now aged 80, who was severely injured and crippled in a car accident during his captivity and that he subsequently cheated on and divorced after his release – for the younger, healther Cindy McCain. I think she will pass just so she can torment the bastard for the rest of eternity.

(Ackshully, I’m kinda-secretly rootin’ for DurnedYankee‘s ship to come in – thus giving us all a Two-Fer: 1) A truly-obnoxious and thoroughly-toxic Ruthie Bad-News Ginzberg goes room-temperature, and out of everyone’s lives, and 2) The Donald gets yet another SCOTUS vacancy to fill with another appropriately-chosen conservative “traditionalist” Justice…Oh, frabjous joy!)

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.
