Dead Pool Round 136: Go away 2020

Congrats to BullDawgGirl, who takes the dick with Alex Trebek. He played himself hosting Jeopardy! dozens of times in movies and on TV. I wonder if that’s some kind of record?

Not a Jeopardy! watcher myself, but I gather he was much loved.

Well. Are you ready? Then we’ll 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.

Trying to keep malice out of my heart, there are so many to choose from that make my brain hurt. Sticking with Norman Perlmutter AKA Norman LLoyd.

Hillary Clinton. No extra points for saying it’ll be apoplexy when Kamala renegs on whatever they promised the witch, but it’ll be apoplexy.

But extra points for sayin Bill will be smiling until they catch him on camera and then he’ll do that classic Bill Clinton tear wipe.

And what’s THIS! Did you people discover transparent “Alumin-ium”!

Probably will not count as a real or regular pick, but I am expecting some form of political assassination in the US, at some major level, soon as normal political means of resolving differences seem to be ineffective from now on. Odds are that the assassin will be from the Left, but not guaranteed.

@ durnedyankee … “And what’s THIS! Did you people discover transparent Alumin-ium”. I can’t see any aluminium in the Sky Pool. It appears to be just acrylic (all the way from Colorado) and stainless steel.
The new US Embassy building next door looks very odd.

My Bob Dole pick has already been poached {I was only a day late and you all went and started without me. It is just impolite, is all.}

Anyway, I will fall back on Larry Storch. Even though he is 97, Corporal Agarn will not last forever.

Hoo boy. I am _really_ late to the party this time.

My main windows computer died, so I had to set up a Raspberry PI 3B+ as my internet thingy. A brand-spanking new Raspberry PI 4B (4GB) should arrive today, which will improve my setup. Well, enough of my personal issues. Changing it up once again and picking …

Kamala Harris

… because we don’t need a cock-sucking political whore for president, once Ol’ Slow Joe Biden kicks the bucket – or is deemed incapable of holding office.

Uh…Tim, let’s give Kamala a little credit. Unlike Hillary, she can do at least one thing well. If Durned hadn’t picked Mrs. Bill, I’d take her. She may blow a gasket fairly soon. At this point, Bill is definitely hoping the gasket is first.

Not a pick, but David Dinkins, elected the first black mayor of New York City in 1989, has died. He beat three-term mayor Ed Koch, then lost to him after one terrible term. As a friend commented elsewhere,

…no need to speak ill of the dead.

The facts of his term do that nicely for him.

David Prowse has passed at age 85 (no one had him as their pick).
