On to Deadpool 312

2)Anyone who nominates the worlds oldest man or woman is a cunt who we will ignore.

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

  4. Poor admin finally gets this up and then David Soul carks it. Congrats Smells Fishy.

    • David Soul died yesterday – so I should have won.

      I leave it to others to do the honourable thing, but on here it’s extremely doubtful

      • I should have won with Glynis Johns announced yesterday.😧☹️

        Anyway well done Shaun

        My nominations are:

        Group Captain John Hemingway DFC
        Flight Lieutenant John Cruikshank VC
        Sandy Gall
        Alan Bennett
        Julie Andrews (who along with Glynis was in Mary Poppins)

      • Please see Rule 5 on here. I try to get the pools up as quickly as I can to avoid anyone missing out on their picks however working full time and being on night shifts and getting over a nasty virus has made this difficult recently. Other admins have been posting pools however we all missed the message about Jim Breaks dying.

        If the rule of first death applies it means there is one no way to deal with ties where the death date is the same plus it could mean each pool would have to be re-written multiple times when deaths are announced a day or more later. I am more than happy for another admin to take over the Dead Pool under new rules if that is what people want but I dont have time to keep re-writing and investigating pools that have already been open as it turns out someone died last week and it has only just been reported.

      • get better soon Shaun. A few colleagues of mine has been off a lot recently too – definitely something nasty going round this year. I’m perfectly happy to rejoin the admin team in order to manage the Deadpool if necessary.

      • I have no problem with the way Dead Pool works, it’s all based on who gets past the gates first, God and Satan have Shaun on speed dial.

        “Hi, Shaun, guess who just came knocking?”

      • Cheers Opionated Cunt.Feel free to rejoin and help out.I am now on the mend.Just didn’t see the message about Jim Breaks and when I woke up after a night shift Souls death was just announced and Draper’s was announced about 3 hours earlier.I discussed rule 5 nearly 2 years and their was unanimous agreement.Also we don’t have a death date officially announced for Draper so with that and the fact no death time was given for Soul that I can see who the heck knows who drew their last breath first hence why rule 5 was brought in.

      • Shaun, it is all a bit of fun and I don’t mind at all. I just enjoy taking the piss a bit.

        Anyway get well soon.

      • No probs Shaun. I can’t remember my login details so get Guy to send those over to me and I’ll be happy to hop on.

    • From what I have read in my Telegraph Ms Johns and David Soul both died on January 4th (poor Glynis – taken far too soon) and Draper, though only tearfully announced by Ms. Garroway on Friday, 5th (is she not fragrant?) actually put on his golden slippers on Wednesday January 3rd.

      Perhaps it would be easier if the demise of public figures were announced in advance. I was thinking of taking Yvette Cooper for a nice ride on the motorway on Sunday afternoon in the potato truck, wearing my tie ……..

  9. Didn’t know too much about him but he started a website spreading rumours about Tory MPS,

    No wonder luvvie-land made a big deal of his long covid (for that and obvious nudge unit reasons).

    Turns out he was a bit of a cunt.

    • Gold plated cunt mate He made a lot of people miserable especially women who he took great delight in causing trouble for He won’t be missed by many people good riddance 🥳🥳

      • It’s Tessa Jowell all over again – a nasty piece of work who just so happens to get a horrible disease and ends up lionised in death as a result. The way someone dies – no matter how horrible it may be – should never be used as a distraction from who they were in life.

      • Tessa Jowell waa another one whose death led to a ‘good riddance’ back when you could say things on Facebook and not have 4 rozzers turn up, which is the sort of thing Jowell supported while in office.
        interferring, snooping old cunt, and whose wikipedia entry is full of controversies.
