Dead Pool Round 146: here comes Fall!

Well! Looks like thefritz takes it with…Ruthie Tomson? I had no idea. 111 year old Disney animator.

She retired in 1975. Man, she must’ve cost the Disney pension fund a heap of dosh.

Right! Are we ready for what’s coming? Noooo…nobody is. But we can do the Dead Pool while we wait:

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.

Nancy Jane Marie Heathcote-Drummond-Willoughby, 28th Baroness suo jure Willoughby de Eresby, and 1/4 hereditary Lord Great Chamberlain.

(The office of LGC is “partible”, rotating among three families with successive monarchs. Lady H-D-W’s father was LGC to George VI; her turn will come when little George succeeds his father and grandfather. (One family gets two turns in four.))

Does she count as a celebrity? If not, I have another nifty pick.

Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia.

If he commits the heresy of standing up to the Will of the Party and of the Proletariat by killing or limiting the looting of the treasury, the Left will ensure a “tragic accident”. Yeah, I know that in a 50-50 Senate that would technically give the Republicans control until Romney and/or Murkowski change parties; but then again we have seen repeatedly that Republicans will not oppose the Left if it counts.
