Dead Pool Round 151: Spring is right around the corner

See? I did remember. Mostly because I actually set this up yesterday on a timer.

LavenderGirl nabs another dick with Louie Anderson (I do believe LavenderGirl is employing steve’s gambit). Somebody linked to this the day he died: five minutes of Louie Anderson riffing on an alarm going off in the audience.

An observation: during the whole two years of pandemic and lockdown, there was not an appreciable increase in the number of Dead Pool winners. But in the last six months or so, it’s heated up. I draw no conclusions. Well, I do, but I don’t share.

Are we ready?

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.

Ghislaine Maxwell , she’d barter her way to a lesser sentence, if the prosecutors actually wanted to get someone besides Donald Trump and Prince Andrew.

As it is though, she’s just a loose end that will have to be taken care. Before Hillary’s campaign, probably, by, you know, Russians. Because our leaders think we still think we’re ‘fighting’ the Soviet Union, so check under your bed, because Putin is everywhere.

Senator Ben Ray Lujan from New Mexico for two reasons. With him out medically [Senate rules say you have to be present to vote] the 50-50 R/D split with a Democrat VP breaking the tie for the Dems becomes 50-49. If he dies they can appoint another Democrat and restore that. Rather than lose, the Dems would rather go to a funeral. Second, talking to a doctor, the description of what they did [remove part of his skull to relieve pressure] indicates it was a dissecting aneurysm and not a blockage stroke. The fact that they are lying about it means it is more serious and he may well die.

But EA: If you win I will be cheering you on.

Man. I’m running out of picks. Either they have already died, or I’ve chosen them already (I try to do a unique pick each time).

So … timely choice, but not very likely. I’m going with Whoopi Goldberg this time. She’s only 66yo, but she’s overweight and spiteful (not to mention stoopid) and hopefully she’ll choke on a chicken wing.

Comment from Uncle Al
Time: February 5, 2022, 9:56 pm

I’ve already posted my pick, so this is a gimme for anybody interested but still uncommitted.

Many many many people are very very very pissed off at Chris “Fredo” Cuomo. Rumors are that he has a lot of blackmail material on a lot of the Woke, and not solely the CNN Woke, and that threats from Cuomo were the main reason CNN boss Zucker resigned.

It would be totally unsurprising if something fatal were to happen to him (not that I’d shed any tears).

If I get stuck for an idea on the Celebrity Dead Pool selection sweepstakes, I take a gander at:

I know that we can’t change picks, but I will say that now I am REALLY hoping EA gets it.

As of a few minutes ago in Ottawa, there are reports that the police have seized the Truckers’ stores of fuel, food, and propane and have a line of tow trucks they are escorting into the city. I expect that there will be casualties amongst the Truckers. I am hoping the cities get real used to being hungry.

Ah, you left out their plan to gather data on these protesting fiends to be used in some January 6th style kangaroo court.

How dare these people protest against Fidel’s son and his mandates.

Oh, and the emotional distress lawsuit the folk of Ottawa are planning against the truckers should be followed by an emotional distress lawsuit against being forced to take experimental gene therapy treatments that are not vaccines.
