Dead Pool 175: tea break’s over edition

Nana1 takes dick #4 with Glynis Johns. The old girl was a hundred, made her stage debut at three weeks old and I only ever saw her in one movie.

Are we all juiced up and ready for January? I know I’m not!

Let’s play Dead Pool instead:

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.

Note: I am woefully behind on dick deliveries. If I owe you one, you’ll know how long. I ain’t gived up, but I haven’t drawn much since lockdown. Some day, your heirs might hear from my heirs.

Whoa! Almost missed this today!
Again I select Louis “Are ya using the whole fist there, Space Angel?” Walcott AKA Farrakhan. Repugnant manipulator of words, facts, and vile inciter of violence, antisemitism, and other racism and terrorism. He needs to shuffle off this mortal coil, and by shuffle I mean get hit by a bus or perhaps self-immolate.

Jon Hallford, who with his wife Carie ran Back To Nature Funeral Home and Crematory in Penrose, Colorado. Yeah, there is a story. Last year they found that the owners were NOT cremating bodies and giving the ashes to the relatives. They were giving fake ashes, and the bodies were piled in their building in Penrose dating back to 2019. Better than 200 of them. It took months to clear the building and recover the rotting bodies. The FBI and EPA are involved.

The couple fled to Oklahoma and were caught and returned to Colorado. As in interstate flight to avoid prosecution. They were being held on a couple of million dollars bond.

Until yesterday when Jon Hallford convinced a judge to reduce his bail to $100,000. That is $10,000 cash or assets to a bail bondsman. He will be out on the streets soon. There are a lot of real upset family members, and I suspect if he is found it will not be a good day for him.

For confirmation, a quick internet search will find this.

Four days late! But I never go for the “hot” candidates anyway.

So where to look now? How about the realm of music?

@Rich Rostrum:

Maybe you should have picked Peter Schikile.
