Round 59: Spring is just around the corner

It is my pleasure to announce the demise of Commie douchecanoe Pete Seeger, and not before time. Thank god we had a Harvard-educated Manhattanite to teach us the real purpose of banjer music, or it would still be all moonshine, pretty girls and fattening hogs for Winter. Congratulations to bigsmarthuman, who wins dick while Seeger bum-ditties in hell.

Not a fan, in case I’m being too subtle for you inbred hillbillies.

Right! Here we go! Wait, first an administrative note (I’ll incorporate it into the rules later): 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.

Like my sainted mother used to say, bad spelling thwarts dick winners.

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 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 didn’t have any dinosaur shit particles.

John McCain recently said the Arizona Republican Party’s censure of him may just motivate him to run for a sixth term. By picking him for the Dead Pool I hope to inspire John McCain to, um, retire.

Hope for Change springs eternal in the Gubment Mind – however, I will go with a somewhat-smaller version of Hope (given the opportunity opened up by SomeVeg’s having slood right past in pursuit of yon Fidel), and pick ol’ Insaney Red Janey – Jane Fonda, of whom we couldn’t be less fonda (making certain, you will note, of keerect spellin’ at least oncet), preferably by an aerial carpet-bombing from a B-52 whilst seated on an utterly-pointless defunct anti-aircraft gun…howsomever, if she chances to be the loser in a head-on challenge to a crosstown bus, or simply collapses in a hissy-fit over finding yet another recalcitrant facial wrinkle, that’ll work, too.

Oh, and Harry:”…Skating on thin ice, Wilbur” – properly speaking, shouldn’t that be “…Wil-l-lbur-r-r-r”?

Sweet young feller, that Alan Young always was.

As always, somebody new, and a really nifty pick this time.

“Baby Peggy” Montgomery

Who??? She was a huge child movie star in the early 1920s (paid $1.5M/year) and is still alive, aged 95. I wish her no ill, but I can’t pass up that uniqueness and 95.

(Her idiot father got her fired and blacklisted in 1925, and then squandered all her previous earnings. In the early 1930s, she worked as an extra. She eventually found a decent living as a radio scriptwriter, married and had a child, and became an advocate for child actors’ rights.)

I had a day that was … kinetic, and impeded by snow; and this is the first time I have been able to get here. And I am surprised at the availability. I pick John “Juan” Boehner who is giving control of both Houses of Congress to the Democrats by pushing Permanent Open Borders, Amnesty, and Preferential Citizenship for anyone NOT born in this country. I admit that the thought of one Guido Fawkes crossed my mind in reference to both the Black Mass that birthed the Republican position paper and the State of the Union Address.

If the Institutional Republicans are intent on imitating David Carradine in the mode of their suicide; there is nothing the Conservatives and the TEA Party can do to stop them. All we can do is make sure that their attempt is successful.
