Dead Pool [308]


Congratulations to Freddie the Frog for correctly predicting the exit stage left of Henry Kissinger, whose passing was reported in the early hours UK time. He was 100.

Known the world over as a stalwart figure in American foreign policy under presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. I nicked this off Sly News:

During eight years as a national security adviser and secretary of state, Dr Kissinger was involved in major foreign policy events including the first example of “shuttle diplomacy” seeking peace in the Middle East (that worked out well – NA), secret negotiations with China to defrost relations between the burgeoning superpowers (that worked out well – NA) and the instigation of the Paris peace talks seeking an end to the Vietnam conflict. (which the Yanks lost – NA)

Onwards with Dead Pool 308. You know the rules:

1) Pick 5 famous cunts you think will conk out next. It is first come first serve and no duplicates are allowed. You can always be a cunt and steal someone else’s nominations from the previous pool.

2) Anyone who nominates the world’s oldest man or woman is a cunt who will be ignored.

3) It must be a famous cunt who we have heard of.

4) No swapping picks mid pool unless already taken.

5) Hits are rewarded based on the chronology of death reporting not necessarily chronology of death.

Let the game begin!
