Round 20: bring out yer dead!

Mrs Hill takes the dick with Anwar al-Awlaki. It’s been a week and no retraction, so I think it’s for reals this time. You know what to do, ma’am. Sorry to all those peeps missing out on Steve Jobs; the Dead Pool moves in mysterious ways.

Right! Onward!

0. Rule Zero (AKAn Steve’s Rule): your pick has to be living when picked. Also, nobody on Death Row.

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.

The fabulous prize? Sweet, sweet Spotted Dick! There’s no dick like Aunty’s dick!
