Dead Pool Round 135: unsettled election edition

Hutch takes it with Sean Connery. Connery is and always will be the one and only 007. I’m lookin’ at you, Lashana Lynch.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going back to compulsively F5ing Twitter.

Are we 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.

Not even close. DPs 7 and 8 closed the same day. DPs 13, 17 24, and 27 closed the next day.

DP 7 ended in 1 hour 46 minutes with Gary Coleman.

Jackie Mason passed at 93. Surprised he was still around actually. I mostly remember him as the voice of Aardvark from Ant & Aardvark cartoons in the Pink Panther show in the 70’s. IIRC he was largely blackballed in the entertainment industry for some reason and this was the only gig he could get for a while.
