ROUND FOUR: they’re dropping like flies!

deadpool Princess Bernie for the win! Susan Atkins, Manson grrl and stabber of Sharon Tate, died in prison, aged 61. During her stay, she renounced Manson and found Jesus. Jesus was apparently unimpressed, as Atkins contracted brain cancer and died a slow and horrible death. Yay!

Ummm…I don’t feel quite right mailing a copy of Nuts to someone named Princess Bernie. It just don’t seem etiquette. Especially in light of the sheer fabulousity of the next prize. Perhaps we can negotiate something, Princess.

Meanwhile — fingers on keyboards! Step up and pick yer stiff. You know the drill — one per customer. First come, first served. Any kind of celebrity (excluding death row inmates with executions penciled in — Allen, you sneaky bastard). Type fast and snag the good ones. Strangers and noobs welcome. You’re SO going to want this prize.
 

 

It’s…IT’S…

Not one, but TWO SPOTTED DICKS!

spotteddick

Not just any ol’ dicks, either. These are PREMIUM spotted dicks I bought in the gift shop of Bodiam Castle. (To be absolutely, rigorously fair, poor old Uncle B bought them. As in, stuck his hand in his pocket and brought out some moneys).

I’ve got a line on a more downmarket spotted dick, however. I think I’m going to order a whole case of Aunty’s Spotted Dick.

Because, let’s face it, I’m not EVER going to think up a more fabulous Fabulous Prize.

Just to turn the screw, close perusal of an Aunty’s Spotted Dick packet reveals that they are made in New Zealand!

If you’ve got the guts, have you seen the link to the last words of executed prisoners in Texas that’s been making the rounds.

Hey. HEY! We don’t use ‘weasel’ as a pejorative ’round these parts.

Can you believe nobody on the list has fallen off the perch since September 25?

Why? I saw a sidebar ad for some program he and Mary Matalin were doing together, or something. Did he overspill the beans on her?

Nah, I just think that eventually she’s gonna lose it having to listen to such rank …. Carvilleness alla time.

Ed Koch. Former mayor of New York, 85, hasn’t surfaced (at least where I’ve seen…) in a while. And nobody else has him.

EW, I couldn’t stand to look at the guy, let alone live with him. His would be a good photo for the dictionary definition of “repulsive.”

I wish Israel would get busy in Iran and make my prediction come true. For a host of reasons, one or two of them even more noble than my desire to win the dick.

The spotted dick, I mean, of course.

The Mail says he has “less than a month” — a month is, like, eternity to the Death Pool.

But, yeah, Tawny has a good shot at the dick.

Oh, and may I say, spending your last days furiously trying to get a divorce so your wife won’t get more of the estate than she agreed in the pre-nup is hella depressing.

Yup, I think everything’s accounted for. But all three prizes took, like, ten weeks to get there. Even the magazine. And Enas lost his beans, as he reveals.


Comment from Princess Bernie

Well, at least the boobie magazine wasn’t perishable. I think it’s around the house somewhere – unless MWG took it to the hunting cabin to share with his buddies.
