Dead Pool 164: baby lamb edition

LavenderGirl takes it with Tom Sizemore. The article notes “doctors determined that he had suffered a brain aneurysm as the result of a stroke” – but surely he suffered a stroke as the result of a brain aneurysm.

Stupid journalists.

I have never seen Sizemore in anything, ever, so my only observation is…I hate it when someone younger than me dies, and everyone’s like, “well, he had a good run.”

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.

I am picking Tucker Carlson who is revealing the bipartisan government fraud during the J6 demonstrations to claim it as an insurrection. Both parties have a vested interest in shutting him up. Neither cares for the law and Constitution.

Yes, Uncle Al, Dr Carl and I keep a close watch on the media for reports of ailing celebrities. We have intense discussions before deciding my pick. A typical discussion would be:
Carl. “How about X for the Dead Pool”.
Me. “All right then”.
