Dead Pool 172: I think that’s the right number

BullDawgGuy wins with Rosalynn Carter. I went looking for some Rosalynn Carter fun facts, but there aren’t any. She was a nice, hard-working Southern lady who was married to a president and lived a long time. The end.

Tonight’s the first night of the year it’s dropping to freezing. I’m going to go crawl under something warm and wait for Spring. I’m thinking…a cow, maybe?

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

This time, I’ll take a real flier and pick Keith Richards.

Yes, it would mean the end times are indeed upon us, but perhaps that is indeed the case……

LavenderGirl: I’ve seen Irwin many times on “Escape to the Country” (the British rural landscape is gorgeous, a perfect milieu for real estate porn). He seems like a nice guy, and it’s sad that he’s going so relatively young.

I’ve been under a rock all week and hadn’t seen the news.

I will continue with Louis “Angels touched my sphincter aboard a flying saucer” Farrakhan. Race-baiting, antisemetic, criminal gangleader, asshat extraordinaire needs to go.

This is Tim Carlson. I’m having trouble posting when the Name and E-mail fields are filled out, thus the Anonymous.

I’m picking James Earl Jones, January 17, 1931, 92 years old.

Soon to be ex-congress-critter who says he’s going to embarrass Congress on his way out.
I figure he’ll shoot himself in the head 4 or 5 times before hanging himself.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
