Dead Pool Latest: July 2017

An extraordinary entry this month: more than ONE QUARTER of the entries named Queen’s husband Prince Philip as the one likely to die.

If this happens its going to be one hell of a draw to find the winner. See what happened last for May when 2 people picked Roger Moore.

May Team Names

Ah, it took me a wee while this month to get round to doing this:

Team names at Dr Paul quiz during May 2017
Team names at Dr Paul quiz during May 2017

It’s team names which caught my eye during the month of May.

The standout weirdness is ‘SIBLINGS WITH BENEFITS‘.

They were at the Tolbooth one night.

Doesn’t that team name just give you the heebie jeebies?

The team were indeed a grown-up male persona and a grown-up female person. So you never know.

They were grinning, broadly. I couldn’t even stomach to ask them for the detail or the truth. Just in case it was real.

Dead Pool – January 2017

Right – I just got round to collating the entries for January Dead Pool.

Here they are The number in (brackets) shows the number of people who are backing that name to die.

Winner is the one who picks the MOST FAMOUS person to die in the month.

Trump’s been getting the headlines and lots of you reckon he’s going to get shot. The Queen had a cold at Christmas – that was enough to push her into third while her tenacious husband always makes a high ranking.

Kirk Douglas turned 100 in December, so plenty of votes for him. Maybe like Joao Havelange he’ll make the ton and then pop off in short order?

This month’s randoms include Keith Chegwin, Paul Chuckle and Jaden Smith.
