Dead Pool Round 128: Inktober edition

Huh. Well. Platypuss takes dick with Ginger Baker.

I’d been too sunk in my own misery to notice. And no – on reflection, I don’t believe you can pick me in the Dead Pool. You’d have to make your own dick.


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’m picking Alex Trebek, although Hunter Biden appears to be ripe for the Reaper.

How about semi-comatose (since a 2013 stroke), ex- (since April 2019) President of Algeria Abdelaziz Bouteflika ?

(I have two more nifty picks queued up, but Bouteflika is too unhealthy to neglect. And yes, those years are correct.)

People his age have a lousy track record after falls. I’ve seen it far too many times.

Good luck, SV!

I had the same thought Tim. Carter is 95, and has fallen twice recently, hard enough to make the news. This time it’s a pelvic fracture.

Well, just plain shit.

Picked Baba Ram Dass in the past several DPs.

Threw him overboard for the international man of mystery, the “mostly dead” Joseph Mifsud.

And, would ‘t you know it, Ram Dass is today, the late Dr. Richard Alpert.

Joseph Mifsud is dead as can be, but in a not verifiable way.

Now I can pick a verifiably alive soul, who can become verifiably dead.
