Dead Pool Round 116: Ho Ho Ho Edition

Now, you might think ExpressoBold won the last round with former prez George H. W. Bush, but actually it was Ric Fan with Harry Leslie Smith, a British social justice twunk.

Aw, just kidding — I’m calling 115 for both of them! I can do that! It’s my Dead Pool! Dicks for all!

With that in mind, though, guys…I’m way, way behind on dicks. Worse, I may have lost my list in the crash (I’m still picking up the pieces, but the master list was on the desktop, which I don’t regularly back up). I may need the power of Rich Rostrum’s OCD to work this one out.

But for now, you’ve got a Dead Pool to enter — and I’ve got computer games to play! Ready?

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.

Herman Wouk.
“It seems curious,” he wrote in “Aurora Dawn,” “that life ‘as it really is,’ according to modern inspiration, contains a surprising amount of ‘fornication, violence, vulgarity, unpleasant individuals, blasphemy, hatred, and ladies’ underclothes.’ “

I think I’ll go for the dark horse candidate this time:

Congressman Sam Johnson (R-TX), the oldest current member of the U.S. House of Representatives. Born October 11, 1930, and has been in the House since 1991.

I don’t know much of anything about him except that he’s 88 years old.
