ROUND 24: well, that was quick


Mrs Peel wins the lightning round with Christopher Hitchens. And now Hitch knows for sure the answer to the big question. Or, rather, if he was right, he doesn’t know anything at all. If you know what I mean.

Are y’all ready for some CHRISTMAS DICK?

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.

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 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 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.

What do we want? Aunty’s dick! When do we want it? When somebody on the list dies!

sock it to me

You lost the war, because it was a war based upon lies, deceit and murder. Nothing more. In your greedy haste post 9/11 you ignored all the evidence, you ignored advice from your fiends, your allies, neutral countries, and even from your enemies.
We pleaded with you not to invade Iraq. Saddam and the Iraqi people had nothing to do with 9/11!

The Israelis weren’t the only foreign intel service that knew about, and filmed 9/11 in 2001. We were also filming.

So you invaded Iraq to steal the oil wealth. Pentagon briefings with bible quotes on them contain all the information about your true intentions.
Then there was the depleted Uranium, the millions dead … the backhanders – the MURDER of Saddam Hussein in a kangaroo court.

Ask anyone in the World privately – Americans are the most hated of any people on the planet today. Iraq today, soon Afghanistan tomorrow, and Europe in the not to distant future.
The world has worked out how to take you out. You shipped all of your industry and business overseas. You produce nothing, are in debt by amounts greater than world GDP – and soon the US debt dollar gravy train will end.
Remember, when you go to war with yourselves, no one will care.

Fact is, dipshit, we are called here to help one another, care for one another. I appreciate them what sit in the sterile labs, counting and sorting all manner of miniscule particles. That’s not the point

Its not about what a person does, its about who they are, how they interact with those whom God puts in their path.

Oceania —

Nobody important in the Bush Administration thought, believed, declared, implied, or insinuated that Iraq and Saddam had anything to do with the demise of the World Trade Center at the hands of Islamic fanatics, nor did anyone who understood what was going on. The notion is almost entirely derived from the projective lack of imagination of the sort of leftoramus whose reflexive reaction is “American Imperialism” where a more literate person would say “Aw, fuck!”, e.g., when stubbing a toe or falling on ice.

It follows that the rest of your diatribe is a waste of pixels. You are of course free to waste pixels, but it’s getting to the point(lessness) where I’d recommend that Stoaty no longer let you waste hers.

Damn! Gotta pick quicker…

I was out at a country music show Friday; Saturday I was busy – and out after 3 PM – today just lazy. I was just thinking about a pick when I saw the news at Instapundit, and I thought “That ends the round!”

What’s next? Kim Jong III?

Wow, Mrs. Peel, I plan to be /very careful/ about doing anything that might make you find me. . .dispensable. But, congratulations on the back-to-backs!

RicLocke–possibly. Thing is. . .a lot of what it posts is available if one goes looking online. So, it wouldn’t have to actually /know/ anything about the subject, in order to post. And it is pretty clear that a) none of its anecdotes can be taken seriously–clearly nicked from others–and b)it is misreporting its status with respect to employment and experimentation. It is probably ageism on my part to assume that that means it is a pimply teenager, but. . .sobeit. I can be just as biassed as the next person. 🙂

Dear Mrs. Peel,
Please pick my mother-in-law for the hat trick.
Thanks!
Signed,

I missed the Dick by three hours! At least I had the honor of wishing the little bastard ill just before his (hopefully painful) passing. Congratulations on two in a row, Mrs. Peel. If some little birdy tells
you to pick Harry Reid this time just say the word and I won’t stand in your way.

I think Davem123 gets an honorable mention for being so close once again. Talk about a lightning round.

I heard the bastard died and the first thing I thought of was I gotta go see who won the dead pool on short notice. Stoaty – you’re welcome to use that as a tag line of some sort if you wish.

Oh me, oh my –

Mrs. Peel – to paraphrase the late, definitively-great standup-comic-funman: take my Jane Fonda, puh-leeeze!!!

Do it for the chilluns!…

And Mizz Stoaty saves the price of a separate mailing — a win/win situation!

It has to be much better to win with Kim Jong Il than with Harry Morgan (as I did).
It’s much easier to celebrate the death of a brutal dictator.

As someone who has family in North Korea whom I’ve never met, talked to or exchanged letters with. All I can say is: thanks Mrs. Peel!

And if I may; someone please pick Kim Jong Un who is the son of Kim Jong Il. Let’s make it a twofer!

Personally I’ve got a nice bottle set by for a time like this and I think a nice quiet celebration is on order.

Hell, population +1.

If they stuff him, like Lenin, and move his cadaver around, looking at things and not doing much, which he didn’t sem to do in real life, could he still be Dear Leader?

Or would that be Dead Leader…looking at things?

Just a thought. Dictator recycling. A cord in his back or a hand up his butt could have him spouting Nork claptrap from beyond the grave. Might get him a gig as the new partner for Ahmed the Dead Terrorist.

Death, it’s not the end of your career.

Please? (You know, next round and all. XD)

 

Write a comment

(as if I cared)

(yeah. I'm going to write)

(oooo! you have a website?)


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.
