Round 73: finally!

Has this Dead Pool really been going since January 2, or have I effed my math again? Never mind. Ripley wins dick with BB King (ipley was a typo). Made it to 89 and died peacefully, in his own bed, in his sleep. Not bad for a blues man.

BB King. Not Ripley.

Excuse my haste, but it is coming up on 6WBT and I have just walked in the door. Without further ado — whatever the hell ado is and assuming we’ve had some amount of it already — here we go:

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? Also, make sure you have a correct spelling of your choice somewhere in your comment. These threads get longish and I use search to figure out if we have a winner.

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’ve won before, send me your address again. I don’t keep good records.

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

The winner, if the winner chooses to entrust me with a mailing address, will receive an Official Certificate of Dick Winning and a small original drawing on paper suffused with elephant shit particles. Because I’m fresh out of fairy shit particles.

Uncle B informs me that BB King has died. That means ipley has won the Dead Pool (really, has this one being going since January?!). Time to queue up a new one before the end of day.
