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

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.

Chin Up, Jimmy Hills Death Could Make One Man A Millionaire

I got an excitable email from Nicholas the other day after the death of Jimmy Hill.

Nicholas asked “so am I a millionaire?” The sense of excitement in his email was palpable and, indeed, Nick did indeed choose the mighty-chinned soccer innovator for the December Dead Pool but Nick to calm the jets because …

  1. He was to wait until the end of the month to see if anyone more famous dies. The rule is that your pick has to be the most famous selection to die in any given calendar month.
  2. He doesn’t actually win a million pounds. The tone of his email made me think that perhaps he didn’t read the small print and that he actually thinks he’s in line for an real cash payout of some enormity, rather than the scratchcards with a potential value of one million pounds that I actually give out for dead pool.

Still, it’s our first Dead Pool death since Cilla in August so the total potential jackpot is £4 million. Dare to dream Nick, dare to dream!
