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!

Mrs Peel takes the dick with Christopher Hitchens.

I really did stop the presses on a magazine once. Well, I spotted the error. The editor made the decision to stop the presses. (No kidding — a period was missing on the end of a sentence in a footnote. Engineers are sooo anal retentive)

Anyhoo, that means the new Dead Pool will be up today, 6pm WBT.

About seven hours from now.

Be here, or be someplace else!
