Dead Pool Line Up For December

Dead Pool closed last week for December 2016. I’ve just got round to the data input and it looks like this:

2016_12-dead-cloud-2

Top Five of the Month:

1. Bruce Forsyth (9 votes)

Too ill to attend Ronnie Corbett’s funeral the other month. Brucey has been heavily backed for most of 2016 but is still turning the cards.

2. David Attenborough (6 votes)

Snake’s gonna catch him sometime.

3. Donald Trump (6 votes)

A candidate for being ‘fired’ (on).

4. Prince Philip (5 votes)

Perennial dodger of the reaper.

5. Kirk Douglas (4 votes)

… is literally going to turn 100 in a few days time. That’s his plan, anyway.

Hell Hole

It’s nearly Christmas, so here’s a Halloween post.

There were someSwedes at the quiz and I’d asked team to, quick-as-they-could, write down the names of ten bands which have anything to do with Halloween in their name.

The Swedes IMMEDIATELY wrote down these: I had heard of exactly FOUR of them.

Nordics, huh?

Never heard of half of these
