Round 18: parade of stiffs!

Listen up: THIS IS A NEW DEAD POOL. The last one terminated on a decision by the judges (namely, me) six hours ago. Grasshopper takes the dick! With some CNN guy.

Hey, you know, CNN…that used to be a network. I’ll take it. Congratulations, grasshopper!

0. Rule Zero is a new rule, in honor of Steve. I was going to call it Rule Duh, but “duh” is not a number. Your pick? Has to be alive when you pick him or her.

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?

5. It’s up to you to search the thread and make sure your choice is unique. I’m waayyyy too lazy. 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 don’t want the fabulous prize, you’re too smart to be a regular. It takes me forever to put them in the mail, packages go by slow boat, typically take minimum eight to ten weeks and lose the will to live along the way.

8. The new DeadPool will begin 6pm WBT (Weasel’s Blog Time) the Friday after the last round is concluded.

The fabulous prize? Sweasel dot com’s unofficial sponsor, Aunty’s Spotted Dick! Mmmmm…it’s dickalicious!

I said, “When [she ] has served her usefulness, those who hired her will likely murder her.” My thinking is that now that she’s been reported to be a liar and liable for a perjury charge, she has not only served her usefulness but also is now a positive danger. Her days are numbered and can be counted on the fingers of one mutilated hand.

It’ll look like an accident, though.

You mean like because of the confusion I’m having over the pick “the one in the situation room” and Michelle offing Barry over broccoli?
I DID start wondering if Barry IS THE ONE any more…. the phrase could arguably be applied to Charlie Sheen…

Still, I don’t know, it seems sort of Unamerican to have genuine detailed rules and stuff…. I kind of like my second amendment right to call anybody any nickname I choose for them unless their gun is bigger than mine.

Comment from Mark Matis
Time: July 4, 2011, 4:47 pm

I would argue that there is only one “The One”, regardless of whether he is also known as the “Muslim in Chief” or the “Head Nagger”. And while Mr. Sheen may have his own toadies, he does NOT have anywhere near the bunch that The One has…

Not that I expect even the REMOTEST chance of winning, since I understand the event I postulate has effectively zero chance of happening. But at least “I have a dream!”

Hey Mija Cat, I’ve only got him if the circumstances are as I specified. Vince has him if his specifications prevail. Anybody else want to get him on general principles? I won’t complain there, either. Which is why I spelled out above that a “bunch” of toadies must be AT LEAST three.

Only one pick for the dick, and 16920502 took Phyllis Dilelr first.

EZnSF – 7/211, 12:31 AM – That guy on death row in Texas

A real name is required. Also see below.

The War Planner – 7/611, 3:24 AM – I hereby make the following four picks: Humberto Leal…

Ms. Weasel has disallowed death row guys not otherwise famous.

Vince Mceveety – 7/211, 5:53 AM – Michelle Kills Barry in a tragic accident

Previously claimed by Mark Matis.

EZnSF, War Planner, Vince M – redeem yourselves with new picks!

Think of the choices still available: Robert Mugabe, Kim Jong-Il, Ramsey Clark, Gordon Brown, Paul Krugman, Ruth Ginsberg…

Actually, Vince is welcome to his pick if he still wants it, because it is sufficiently different from the cause I specified that NOBODY is likely to confuse the two. I mean, really, who would liken Moochelle to the Mossad?

And if somebody else wants him on general principles, I won’t object to that, either!

Mark M: Ah, but what if the Mossad secretly programmed Michelle with a maniacal lust for custard pie, and secretly arranged for it to be served in the Situation Room?

Oh, but Rich Rostrom, unless said scenario involves Moochelle taking out at least THREE of Obama’s toadies in the same action (see my post of July 4, 2011, 4:50 pm), then it cannot possibly be my win. Although I do see I probably should have stayed with the Religion of Peace in lieu of the Mossad:

I do realize, though, that report IS from CBS, and as such may just be an unsolicited ad for the Muslim in Chief’s re-election campaign…

How did I miss picking someone for this pool? I thought I was in it the whole time! Since we’re still in the race for the dick — even after Betty Ford and Amy Winehouse — I’m going to go with the eternal congress critter who KNOWS “it takes a while to control the people,” John Dingell.

Frogmouth: Jerry Lewis went 15 minutes later.

Robert Mugabe!
Noam Chomsky!
Kim Jong-il!
Fred Phelps!
Warren Buffett!

Silvio Berlusconi!
