Dead Pool 17th March 2013
Happy St Patrick’s Day to you all, unfortunately for the small list below, it isn’t so happy. But for one of our players, Stu, it’s a fabulous day as he correctly guessed that Clive Burr would peg it, so 96 points to you sir, well done, which instantly boosts you to mid-table.
I’d like also to clarify one small point, anyone who has selected ‘The Pope’ will now have their selection changed to Pope Benedict, not new bloke Francis, although I’m tempted to take bets on which one will die first.
Look who you could have had:
- Princess Lilian, Duchess of Halland, 97, Welsh-born Swedish royal.
- Peter Beard, 68, British television producer, creator of CiTV.
- Clive Burr, 56, British drummer (Iron Maiden), complications from multiple sclerosis.
- Malachi Throne, 84, American actor (Batman, Star Trek, It Takes a Thief).
- Norman Collier, 87, British comedian.

I don’t know about you but I’m a bit partial to baby and chips on a Saturday evening or even Sunday Roast Baby with plenty of gravy. We might have to change Soylent Green is people to McDonalds is babies! Perhaps it already is!
Our good friend Charlie Sheen has landed himself in a bit of bother following a Tweet asking his followers to daub his daughters former school in dog shit. Apparently he’s not happy with how they school responded to a spate of bullying his daughter suffered during May 2012. Nothing like a timely bit of revenge it seems…
A few birthdays to celebrate today, Gary Sinise (58), Patrick Duffy (64), Kurt Russell (62), and Rob Lowe (49).
And I can’t finish off the newsletter without mentioning the new Pope. A lot has been said about him looking a lot like Jim Bowen of Bullseye fame, I personally think he looks more like a sinister Nazi torturer, so pretty much like Bowen then.
I hope the Pope remembers that there’s nothing in this game for two kids in your bed. Yeah, lame, I know…
