Dead Pool 160: this time he’s really dead

Jerry Lee Lewis was dead. Then he wasn’t. Then he was dead again. Hottytottygirl nipped in during his brief period of resurrection to claim the dick, in the fine tradition of a weasel’s Dead Pool.

He was 87, which is a pretty good run for a man of his inclinations.

Looking for a good link about him, I found this whey-faced, scoldy article in Rolling Stone: “Jerry Lee Lewis Was a Rock & Roll Titan. That Doesn’t Justify What He Did Offstage.” Rolling Stone is now indistinguishable from your maiden aunt.

No link because to hell with them.

Anyway! I forgot this all happened last week and I swore there would be a Dead Pool this week, so here it is! Knock yourselves out!

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.
