Dead Pool Round 122: Patriotic Edition

TheFritz takes a fourth dick with Mrs Dog the Bounty Hunter. I’ve been away too long; this meant nothing to me. But the link goes to an article in The Sun, so that’s famous enough for the Dead Pool.

I thought we were going to have problems tonight; a BT engineer turned up and fiddled with our internet for a while. He says it’s working (duh) but he doesn’t know why it wasn’t before (uh-oh).

Never you mind, chilrun — I’d’ve found a way to post the Dead Pool from my phone.


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.

Switching it up yet again and picking Bob Barker, he of Price Is Right fame, who is 95 years young.

Considering all of the spay and neuter recommendations he has done over the years, picking Mr. Barker for the dick is rather apropos.

With absolutely no intent to disparage those wanting Ruth Bader Ginsburg to be officially declared dead, I want to toss in Chief Justice John Roberts, to be hopefully replaced by Judge Amy Coney Barret. And to be honest I hope we both win.

I had forgotten about this dead pool until last night and was thinking of someone to put. I briefly wondered in Perot was still alive to pick. Too late, I guess.

So, let go with Dr. Ruth Westheimer.

Ross Perot??? I thought he died a long time ago. That came from way out of left field.
/just checking the Pool status to make sure I don’t need to remember to re-pick this Friday.

It isn’t American jobs going to Mezco… it’s Mr. Perot taking his last breath.

(Thanks for making the election interesting that one time, Mr. Perot, and for your service to your country.)

According to the UK Daily Mail:

“Nickerson died at her hospital bed Wednesday at approximately 10:30pm Colorado time, her family told TMZ.” (Wednesday being the 10th)

Sounds like a Rule Zero violation to me.

Rich Rostrom:
There are a couple of entries of mine in the past using “Tim Carlson” instead of “Timothy S. Carlson”. My number of unique guesses (as of this DP, #122) should be 69.

Just for bookkeeping purposes …

Also, according to my dive into the DP archives, 6 DP #s have been skipped by weasel (14, 17, 29, 30, 65, and 81). Is that correct?

Hard to believe that in 8 days, it will be the 10th anniversary of the Dead Pool – first post on July 20th, 2009, WBT.

Well, if you were going to pick John Paul Stevens next CDP, don’t:
John Paul Stevens (April 20, 1920 – July 16, 2019) was an American lawyer and jurist who served as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court from 1975 until his retirement in 2010.
I’ll be nice and say RIP…
