November 2017 Dead Pool: Names

Here are the names you chose for Dead Pool this month. If you picked one that drops, you win a £1 million scratchcard. In the past this has been worth as much as a hundred pounds!

If someone else picks the same dead person, I make a draw.

If more than one person on the list dies, I used Google Trends (10 year worldwide average) to determine which is the MORE FAMOUS. And that will be the “winner”.

The new kid on the block is Harvey Weinstein with at least four entries on his name.

But it’s a strong month for the old favourites with Britain’s favourite not-dead-yet couple completely in command of the bulk of entries. In other words: Queenie and Phil Rule OK.

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.

Dead Pool Line Up May 2017

Here are the names you chose to back for death on the #deadpool for May 2017.

Bigger font = more people choosing that name, so once again the front runners include Donald Trump who has been ‘popular’ on dead pool for many months now and Prince Philip who has had to retire despite not actually doing anything in the first place.

If you’re too knackered to even do fuck all… maybe it’s time?

Other top picks include Brucie, Kirky and Bush (Senior), as usual. There was fresh heat for piano player Elton John after his well-reported illness and Alex Ferguson has been picking up the votes so I guess he must have been on TV at some point, looking ropey.

Fun new entries this month include Angela Lansbury, Dennis Skinner (The Beast of Bolsover), Penelope Keith and Karem Abdul-Jabbar (the basketballer).

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.

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.

The Rest…

Unusual to see the Queen not inside the top 5. Is her popularity finally waning.

Here is the rest of the list:

November Dead Pool – Attenborough Favourite

Here’s a cloud of names picked by you for the November 2016 Dead Pool.

As ever, if you pick the MOST FAMOUS person to die during any given month then you receive a million pounds (scratchcard).

deadpool-nov-2016A larger font in the cloud means  more people have picked that name, so the big news this month is David Attenborough who was occasional pick before but has suddenly attracted a tsunami of ghoulish interest.

It must be pointed out that nearly everyone who picked Attenborugh added a little sad face to their entry.

They don’t WANT him to die – but it’s out of their control and they could do with the scratchy.

Edinburgh Man Profits From Death of FIFA Overlord

João Havelange ruled FIFA with a fist of mutton for 24 years but now he is dead.

Edinburgh man Andy The Plantsman correctly named Havelange as a candidate for the reaper for the month of August and thus wins the £1 Million scratchcard:

Joao was exactly a hundred years old, so it was a canny flutter. Here’s what happened next:

dead pool aug 2016
Havelange Dies, Andy Wins (a fiver)

So bottom line: Joao Havelange is ded and Andy wings Five British Pounds.

Dead Pool: They Die, You Win.
