Dead Pool Round 111: I’m’a git that varmint edition

Lester III. Joe Jackson. Dick winner.

Sorry to post and run, but I spotted an honest-to-goodness stoat crawling around on the outside of my henhouse just now, and it’s only a matter of time before he figures a way in. I’m going go sit in the garden with a rifle and wait.

Sure, it’s only an air rifle, but I won’t half make the little bastard sting.

p.s. no picking “that stoat” in the Dead Pool. Ready?

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.

Let’s try a new candidate: Sumner Redstone

He is majority owner and chairman of National Amusements. Doesn’t sound like much until you find out that company owns CBS, Viacom, and a bunch of other goodies. Redstone is worth about $5 billion, is 95 years old, and keeps getting perky young new girlfriends. I don’t know if he has any announced health problems, but I think his days are numbered.

This is the absolute strangest death announcement I have ever seen:

Frederick Seawright (August 11, 1960 – July 29, 2018) was an American professional wrestler, better known by his ring name Brickhouse Brown.

Brown reportedly died on July 20, 2018, from prostate cancer. The next day, Cauliflower Alley President B. Brian Blair said Brown was still alive after waking up in the night and telling his mother, who thought he was dead and was awaiting the coroner, that he was hungry. He died nine days later on July 29. – wikipedia entry for “Brickhouse Brown”

Nix the pick (Rule 1). But I don’t watch fake wrastling – I reckon that’s why I’.ve never heard of him either.

Comment from Steve
Time: July 31, 2018, 3:02 am

Well, financial news types were all atwitter. First about his apparent business acumen and attendant ability to effectively manage Fiat/Chrysler. Then, again, about his rather abrupt departure from this mortal realm.

Not a chicken person, that anyone has been able to ascertain.

Neither a USofAnian, or a British subject. Some kind of Canadian/Italian hybrid.

But, in the words of Dr. Leonard McCoy, “He’s dead, Jim!”

If this is a “Weasel Nixed Pick”, then I request release to select some other, more notable, candidate who is ready to fall off his perch.

I had thought about picking Roseanne because she’s completely unhinged implying substance abuse. But someone is out to get Senor Maduro (imagine that?). Seems like the safer pick? Or the least safe pick.
