Dead Pool Round 117: Goodbye, Dolly!

I didn’t even know Carol Channing was still alive, and now she’s not.

Congratulations to peacelovewoodstock, who takes the dick! First dick of 2019.

On your mark, get set…last one to reach Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a rotten egg!

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.

Sticking with Herman Wouk.

RBG will be kept “conventient” (conveniently sentient) in an

Experimental Medical Contraption (proper name of device/tech can be found by utilizing the Hypno-Serenclickity principle) until advantageous for the Leftist Overlords.

Appreciated, Fritz. Magnetic North navigational issues threw off the Courtesy Van yesterday. Otherwise, you’d be enjoying the comforts of the VIP area of The Estate. Unless you prefer the participation wing. Some VIPs choose to jump back in once in awhile.

Why is everyone avoiding…. “her?”
In any case, I will leave “the sure thing” and nominate Nancy Pelosi, the San Fran Queen of Big Spending and Idiot Pronouncements.
I hope Chuck doesn’t croak due to more losing than he can handle… HAHAHAHAHAHA – I crack myself up!

Something odd.

Britain’s first rock’n’roll star, Tommy Steele.

(Was watching an Agatha Christie adaptation set in the late 1950s. Two characters visit a London nightclub, where a band that looks a lot like “Tommy and the Steelmen” is playing their hit “Elevator Rock”.)

Yeah, well, crap –

Ol’ unkawill sniped me outta my “usual”…an’ it’s my own dang fault for being Late To The Show –

So – guess I’ll have to go with the backup plan: Larry King, y’ole sockdolagizer, it’s time ta go – an’ take yer suspenders an’ yer bow-tie collection with you, while you’re at it, y’old fart…

(Actually, I’m rooting for Hutch‘s selection to ring the Choir Eternal’s chimes – Notorious R.B.G., you’ve long, long over-stayed whatever “welcome” you might’ve ever had; time to go “Bye-bye” – the sooner, the quicker!)

Jerry Lee Lewis, “The Killer”

He’s packed a lot of livin’ into his 83 years. (But I hope I lose because I read thru the other picks and there are 20 or 30 people I’d like to see dead!!)

Well done, little sister! It looks to me as though you posted your pick in the nick o’ time: January 21, 2019, 2:10 pm.

By my figuring, 2:10 pm Weasel time is eight hours later than PST, so in Rancho Mirage that would have been 6:10 in the morning Monday.

MortysTV.com – a fan page – says:

Ballard’s friend, Marguerite Gordon, told WSB Atlanta the actress died Monday night at her home in Rancho Mirage, California. Ballard had been fighting kidney cancer, Gordon said Tuesday.

So, it seems Rule Zero does not apply.

RIP Kaye Ballard

Late to the pool, and the ones I really want are picked, so I will do one [and maybe more] that I really don’t want to see but I fear will happen. Looking on sites all over, Leftists are calling for physical attacks on Nick Sandman, the rest of the Covington High boys, and their families. The school had to be closed because of the threats. The calls are stark, raving Chiroptera feces, and include offers of sexual favors to anyone who attack the boys. Someone will try to collect.
