ROUND SIX: March madness!

deadpool
In the shortest Dead Pool yet, nachogranny wins it with Peter Graves.

So! Here we go:

1. Pick a celebrity. Any celebrity at all, though I reserve the right to nix picks I never heard of.

2. We start from scratch every time. No matter who you had last time, you have to turn up and pick again. Poachers are not shunned.

3. Your first choice sticks. Choose wisely!

4. It’s up to you to search the thread and make sure nobody’s got your pick already. What am I, your mother?

5. The pool is open until somebody on the list has the decency to croak. Feel free to jump in any time. Newbies, strangers and drive-bys welcome.

6. If you want the fabulous prize, you have to trust me with a mailing address. If you don’t want the fabulous prize, it may be the most sensible decision of your whole miserable life. Packages go by slow boat, typically take eight to ten weeks and arrive looking crusty and hungover.

7. The new DeadPool will begin the Friday after the prize is awarded.

Once again, you’re playing for a two-pack of Aunty’s weaselicious microwavable spotted dick. A two pack, I said! And by the time it gets there, an out of date two pack, most likely. Eat at your own risk.

Let the macabre speculation begin!

Let’s throw a new (and highly deserving) name into the mix: Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY), who thinks the House can enact legislation without voting on it. She’s 81, which puts her nicely in the target zone, so to speak.

(She’s the 5th oldest Representative.)

I looked at the Senate. Byrd is of course the oldest Senator, and oldest person in Congress. BTW, the three youngest Senators are all appointed. A bit odd, that.

One other bit of weirdness. The average year of birth of Democrat Senators is exactly 1946. The average YoB of Republican Senators is also exactly 1946.

Not because of any malice. A very interesting person who was actually held down by the man (life actually) if you believe what she writes. Me, I like her genre of “autobiographical fiction” which sort of gives me permission to make up shit about my life. Why, I remember discussing this very same topic with Barbie Benton several years ago. We also talked about the fact that my choice
of Dr. Angelou in a Sweasel dead pool transcended the
the oppression of temporalism.

Mr. Matamoros tried for Dick Clark; he was only a week late. (Though Janna picked “Dick ‘heh’ Clark”, so it could be missed on a search. Check for last name only or funny misspellings, like “Nazti Pelosi”. Yeah, I’m an engineer.)

Stay tuned for the decision from Chief Judge Weasel …

Is the Aunty’s Spotted Dick better than Heinz Spotted Dick? One of our local grocery stores has the Heinz Spotted Dick, and it was ok. When I put spotted dick in my mouth, I want a good tasting spotted dick.


Comment from S. Weasel
Time: April 30, 2010, 8:37 pm

I’ve not tried the Heinz one, but the ones I’ve seen come in a can. I can’t imagine canned dick is very appealing.

Aunty’s dick is in a handy microwavable dish.

Weasie, the avatar is Jimmuh Carter with a pyramid of Preparation H boxes stacked in front of him while holding the “iconic” Obama “Hope” pix above the top box. It doesn’t translate too well to the dinky avatar size.


Comment from MrCaniac
Time: May 15, 2010, 4:23 am

Weasel, the Heinz is in a can, and the label says it can be microwaved after removing from the can. The store also has Treacle. My local grocery has a nice little section with British foods.


Comment from S. Weasel
Time: May 15, 2010, 11:23 am

Yeah, I used to tease Uncle B that all the British food was in the “ethnic foods” section of my Stop N Shop.

You know, Mumbles…now I’m kind of sorry I asked.

Stop & Shop calls it “International Foods” now. They must have figured out there’s white people food in there too.

Yowza, I found the place where the cool kids hang out.

I went to a protest in Boston. Lots of hippies protesting the AZ law. The stalinist dude showed up as always along with the Pali flag waving dbag. I was attempting to out crazy the commie guy but he ran away. A fine lass I met was very committed to the plight of illegal aliens. Not so committed that she’d talk to a creepy guy like me about the forgotten aliens at area 51 though. I hoped to convince the anarchist dudes that the pali flag waver was discretely taking their pictures with a cell phone but it didn’t quite work out.

Protester baiting may not be as snazzy a sport as bobsledding but it is a lot of fun (and a bit dangerous but that’s how i roll.
