Round 48: you don’t get dick any more

AltBBrown wins again! With former NFL, NCAA coach Jack Pardee. I trust you guys that this is significant.

I totally didn’t inherit the sports gene. I told my dad that once and he said, “yeah, me neither. You watch football, though, right?”

Right! Here we go:

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.

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?

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 prize? We call it “winning the dick” for historical reasons. It used to be an actual dick you got in the mail — but, man, dick is heavy! So instead, you will get a small, simple, original sketch by me. And it won’t even be a sketch of dick. I tried, but it turns out I can’t draw dick!
