Dead Pool Round 150: day after Insurrection Day, back to work

Well! Armybrat has two dicks. Desmond Tutu and Betty White, two perennial favorites.

Sidney Poitier is now out of the running, too – though, to be honest, I hadn’t thought of him in years. Not one of those celebrities who cling on to the limelight, I guess.

And now I have to go batten down the hatches (or at least tarpaulin the chicken house) before a storm reaches us tonight – high winds and heavy rain. I am turning into a mushroom people.

So, before I get spores all over everything – are we ready?

Then let’s 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.

Did you hear the FBI when they executed their search warrant on Epstein’s residence left electronic media that had prominent male names with victims in the house to return a few days later and find out it was removed by his lawyer. I wonder how many of those videos went missing. Maybe that’s why he didn’t hang himself.

Normally I would not cheer for a three-peat but I will gladly give up my pick to see you win again.

It might not matter if Army Brat wins again but you might want to pick another pick for this deadpool since the queen got chosen out of the gate today.

I’m going with Hillary because she really deserves it.

Joey is helping destroy the Democratic party so I’m okay with leaving him alone for a while till he finishes the job properly.

Then again, there’s Bill, who’s not safe until Ghislane Maxwell is done shooting herself 7 times in the back with a musket.

Sigh….No, I’ll stick with Hillary.

My pick this round is Kamala Harris. The Dem PTB see that Joey Stools is circling the commode maelstrom and they won’t be able to hide his dire condition much longer, and they also see that a President Harris would make matters worse rather than better. Ergo, Kakamala will most likely come down with a fatal case of endocarditis-cause cardiac arrest so that they can install somebody else — anybody else — as their meat puppet for the next three years. THREE! YEARS! GAAAAAH!

Check out the “celebrity” roast of Saget on YouTube. The whole audience yuks it up over him being called a raping, murdering pedophile. It’s not a joke. If you were accused of that all evening long, would you laugh, let alone smile?

Saget had a squeaky-clean image from Full House, but his own comedy routines were beyond raunchy,

“If you were accused of that all evening long, would you laugh, let alone smile?”

If I were a professional comedian (and also not a raping, murdering pedophile), yes, I would smile and laugh, because in comedy circles it’s a sign of respect to trash the crap out of each other.
