ROUND EIGHT: okay, you can slow down now

Well! Tawny won the last one in, like, an hour and a half with Gary Coleman. Just as well. We crossed Dennis Hopper and Rue McClanahan off the list waiting for Friday. That one was destined to be a short round.

Okay, here we go!

1. Pick a celebrity. Any celebrity, though I reserve the right to nix picks I never heard of.

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 thread and stake your claim. Poaching and other dirty tricks positively encouraged.

3. Your first choice sticks. Don’t just blurt it out this time, okay?

4. It’s up to you to search the thread and make sure your choice is unique. Popular picks go fast.

5. The pool is 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.

6. If you want your fabulous prize, you have to entrust me with a mailing address. If you don’t want the fabulous prize, I applaud your sophisticated taste and superior temperament. Packages go by slow boat, typically take eight to ten weeks and arrive looking rode hard and put away wet.

7. The new DeadPool will begin 6pm WBT (Weasel’s Blog Time) the Friday after the honoree kicks the bucket.

The fabulous prize? Sweasel’s unofficial sponsor, Aunty’s Spotted Dick, of course!

DING-DING-DING-DING! Another short round: steve wins it with John Wooden. See you all back here next Friday, 6pm WBT.
