Dead Pool July 2019

I’ve just got round to typing up the entries for July 2019 Dead Pool and straight away I’ve noticed that we will definitely have a winner this month.

A man named Iain who drinks at the Brass Leith picked motormouth mutton-chopped misogynist and horse-racing correspondent John McCririck to fall at Beecher’s during July and that’s exactly what happened when the old tart cashed in his final betting slip on Friday.

This does NOT mean that Iain is the automatic winner.

As ever, Dead Pool is a challenge to predict the MOST FAMOUS dropper in any given month, so If someone more famous on this list dies by midnight on July 31st, then McCririck will be bumped.

As usual there is a lot of interest in The top royal pairing of Queen and Phil, but nice to see some new names on there as well: Kevin Spacey, R Kelly and Shirley Bassey are all lesser-backed picks but could do well.

Here’s the full list:

In other words, I ran out of Dead Pool sheets and forgot to order more.

Dead Pool March 2019

Dead Pool March 2019 cloud
Prince Philip Leads The Way

Got round to tabulating and recording the March 2019 Dead Pool entries yesterday.

Prince Philip dominates, a spell in the news always gives Dead Pool rankings a boost and the old D of E is usually number one anyway so he’s the big boss this month: if he dies it will be a fifteen way tie for the scratchy.

Surprise/exotic picks for this month include Les Dennis and Mariah Carey. What a pair they would make if they ever became romantically involved.

Anyway, here is the full list for the month:

December Dead Pool

Here’s the list of names chosen by you for December’s Dead Pool

Image result for prince philip

Bad luck to those who picked George Bush Sr, only for him to drop dead in the last few hours of NOVEMBER.

By the way: a post will be made soon regarding the winner of the November Dead Pool

If you are one of the three then you might feel pissed off but THINK for a minute: it’s worse for George.

Biggest shout of the month is, as usual, old Prince Philip who keeps rolling the dice and avoiding a seven.

Interesting new entries include Tom Morello who was the guitarist in Rage Against The Machine, Amanda Bynes who is “back” according to Twitter (I never knew she existed let alone had “gone away”) and Dominic Raab who may well die from having too many As in his naame.

So, if any of these die before December, then we have a winner. Top picks are Prince Philip (9) and The Queen  (7).

A notable newcomer is Glenn Hoddle who, was probably slightly unfairly panned as “hating the disabled” back in 1999 and is now in hospital after a heart attack.

Dead Pool September 2018

Here’s the full list of potential droppers that you picked for September 2018. If one of these dies then we’ll have a winner.

It looks like we have a winner for August because someone did pick John McCain. I just have to get in touch with the winner to confirm…

If you entered David Lynch for September then that’s a great pick but you didn’t make the list because I could not for the life of me read your email address. So therefore, bin.

Old favourite Prince Philip leads the way again with eight people pinning their million-pound hopes on the mad old racist who refuses to die.

A bit of late-month bandwagon-hopping saw the new entry of Hearts boss Craig Levein, but the footballer seems to be on the mend now.

Nice to see Hollywood power-nonce  Kevin Spacey on the list. You never know…

Monday Night Edinburgh Pub Quiz Action

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Diana Ross (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: The B-52s (music round)

Top quiz action tonight. Heavy, sexy, powerful. Will we have an ABBA singalong? Unlikely but you never know…

Meanwhile, here is a cheat clue for tonight’s quiz at the Safari:

By the way, did you know that 1983 actually looked like this clip. This is not some effect to do with low-resolution recording and videotape degradation, the real world actually looked like this.

Thanks to developments in technology and politics, real life went hi-def in about 1998. And you kids complain if your skinny latte isn’t hot enough. You kids don’t know you’re born.

By the way – we have a winner for DEAD POOL in August. Old John McCain lost his long-running battle with death and that means that Tomas Sanders is a winner.

Dead Pool September 2017
Sep 2017 – the last time there was a John McCain Dead Pool surge

If Tomas can drag his ass to the quiz before the end of September he will receive a shiny £1 million scratchcard.

################################

Best prize for Dead Pool to date was £100 won by the bloke who predicted the demise of BB King back in 2015. Could this one be better?

Remember: tonight’s pub quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double.

First one at the Brass Leith finishes at 8.30pm and the second one at the Safari Lounge begins at 9pm (although I don’t usually hit the first question until about 10 past or quarter past)

By the way 2018 Cunto Cards are in stock so stop me and buy a deck if you want to get in on the action. Or click on the image below to buy them online…

May Dead Pool Line Up

I’ve just completed the data entry for May DEAD POOL. Your picks for the month look like this:

Big stories this month:

  1. A heavy upswing in support for the demise of George Bush Senior. This is, presumably, in the wake of the death of his partner Barbara during April. Plus the facts that he is old as fuck (93) and a bit fucked (Parkinson’s, sepsis, etc)
  2. The first appearance, as far as I can recall, of Amber Rudd. I reckon not. Tory cuntos who lose their jobs tend to just pop up later in mutated form. Rather than die. Sadly.
  3. Same with rapists. Bill Cosby will protest, complain, go to jail, serve time, and sincerely think it is all someone else’s fault. He won’t kill himself. That’s not how that mob operate.
  4. Quizbuster mythbuster kiss fact participants Nichele Nichols and William Shatner are BOTH on the list. Their kiss on Star Trek (as Uhuru and Kirk) is regularly quoted as the first interracial kiss on television. But this is not true.
  5. Also, no real story but it’s nice to see Scotland’s top showbiz talent Marti Pellow making a wee appearance on the list. I saw him once doing Billy Flynn in ‘Chicago’ and I thought he was brilliant. I hope he doesn’t die.

Dead Pool Full List for March 2018

It took me slightly longer to get round to imputting Dead Pool data this month.

By the time I got to my keyboard, Stephen Hawking, Jim Bowen and Ken Dodd had all dropped.

It’s easy to get them mixed up.

Meanwhile, I’ve done the typing and entering, so here is the full list of those selected for the reaper during the month of March.

Eagle-eyed readers will quickly spot which of the three legends above has been predicted, meaning we already have a winner but we have to wait until the end of the month to find out if someone MORE FAMOUS dies from the list.

After all, that’s the game.
