Dead Pool Round 95:

Am I late? I’m late! Beg pardon – Daylight Savings Time or whatever the hell.

Ric Fan takes the dick with ‘Professor’ Irwin Corey. Despite the fact he was older than holy shit, I somehow never ran across this guy before. I’d heard the name, I just didn’t know his shtick.

Apparently, among other things, he entertained the troops of Occupy Wall Street. So another lefty comedian, what’s new?

e’s dead, that’s what.

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.

Dead Pool Round 94: Come on, 2016 – one last shot

Well, well. Carrie Fisher. A young death and a sad one.

But another win for weaselwannabe, and a sneaky win, at that. I love the sneaky ones.

Today’s Dead Pool is positively the last for 2016, which has 30 hours to take another celebrity victim. Go on, big guy…

What the hell, 2016?

death

Well, I’ll be damned. New Dead Pool. At least I’m not on the hook for George Michael.

Third(?) win for weaselwannabe, I think. A reminder to all winners of dick: even if you’ve won before, I need a confirmation of your address (and the nick it goes with) please. I am, in fact, starting to work down the backlog again.

The image is from Gustave Doré, one of my absolute favorite illustrators from childhood. Why someone would give a little girl an illustrated Dante’s Inferno is the question. “Weasel family” is the answer.

There’s always been a niggling doubt in my mind whether the magic of his illustrations should actually be credited to the engraver instead.

So. New Dead Pool Friday. After which, you realize, 2016 will have almost 30 hours to squeeze one more winner in.

Dead Pool Round 93: Christmas Eve Eve Edition

Zsa Zsa at last! I thought she’d never go. All hail LesterIII for being the last one with a chair when the music stopped. Is this win #3?

Now, it is the day before the day before Christmas, and likely the last Dead Pool of 2016. Make this one count!

IT’S A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE!

zsazsa

2016 — is there nothing this year cannot do? Zsa Zsa Gabor — surely the oft most-picked pick in the Celebrity Dead Pool — has copped it at last, at the predictably enigmatic age of 99. All congrats to LesterIII for winning the most elusive dick in the game.

We will of course be back here Friday, 6WBT, for a Christmas Eve Eve Dead Pool Round 93. The 2016 Dead Pool can have one more week to astonish us all.

Don’t miss it!

I’m not officially off work until tomorrow afternoon, but I’ll post the usual low-effort fluff all week: that’s my pledge to you. Do come over for some mulled wine and a natter.

Dead Pool Round 91: Fidel has copped it! Who’s next?

Fidel at last, Fidel at last! I was just a little babby when Fidel seized power. I’ve never known a world without him. Looking forward to it!

Dead Pool Round 90: Holiday Edition


Scott Jacobs wins the honors with Leonard Cohen. Died in his sleep after a fall. Not a bad way to go. Assumed he would meet a…darker end.

I have a gut feeling Hillary! is going to be the new Zsa Zsa. She looked so rough last time she appeared, I could almost squeeze out a little tear for her.

Almost.

Art thou ready? Then we begin:

Good weekend, all!

Thanks for the heads-up, y’all. Scott Jacobs indeed wins the Dead Pool with Leonard Cohen. First pick of the last pool. Congratz, Scott!

And, just now announced, Robert Vaughn has shuffled off today, as well. It was a bit of a shock to see a picture of him as an old man; in my dessicated old brain, he’s still the embodiment of cool.

It’s too late to queue a new Pool this week, so gather ’round next Friday.

FRIDAY – NOVEMBER 18 – 6WBT – DEAD POOL ROUND 90

Round 89: ’tis the season of rapid turnover

Bhumibol Adulyadej, known as King Bhumibol the Great, was the ninth monarch of Thailand from the Chakri Dynasty, as Rama IX. That’s what Wikipedia says, anyhow. Also, he dead.

This is the fifth dick for the Carls (Carl and Mrs Carl). The Carls have an insatiable appetite for dick.

Google, are you listening?

Dick. The Carls can’t get enough of it.

Fancy a little dick your own self? Here we go!
