Dead Pool Round 155: I’m not dead yet!

Another sneaky win! Tony Dow of Leave it to Beaver fame was pronounced dead Wednesday.

Problem was, he warn’t. Not quite. This gave HottyTottyGirl the opportunity to nip in and claim him.

He died Thursday.

Poor bastiche. That role pretty much ruined his life.

Are we feeling strong enough to try again? Sit up straight and 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.

A sad passing, Samuel Sandoval, Navajo code talker hero from WWII has passed. He was 98. I have always been fascinated by this amazing piece of American history. An unwritten language, spoken by one small group of Americans, befuddled the Japanese and ensured our communications were secure and helped us turn the tide in the Pacific. RIP fine sir.
