    You shouldn't have been watching her sex tapes in the first place.

    The Dead of 2018

    Very considerate of him. Unique hit for my #1 Hits Derby Dead Pool team. I was so confused the first time I heard that song and did a Google Image search on him. The dweebiest male vocal in music history was somehow recorded by what looks like a retired 1980s WWE star.

    Next Music Shock Death!

    Which of his 20-odd UK top 40 singles was his "one hit"? Avicii was responsible for at least two of the defining sounds of 2010s pop ("everything trying to sound like 'Levels'" and "everything trying to sound like 'Wake Me Up'"). He's hardly Rednex. (Rednex were better, but that's not the point.)

    Avicii

    5 or 6 years past his chart peak, to be fair – he was already naff enough in 2014 that he was producing for Coldplay. By 2015 he was getting cut from a Madonna album. Only finding out now he had a #4 hit last year, though, featuring Rita Ora. It's always 2012 somewhere.

    Derby Dead Pool 2018

    I'd have had 4 hits instead of 1 by now if I'd just stuck with last year's team. 2018 is proving to be a bad year for 2017.

    Changing the picture without changing the bio was the best possible outcome here, and I hope it stays like that.

    Derby Dead Pool 2018

    Couple of errors I noticed in the 'Angela of Death' team: - The DUP founder Peter Robinson should actually be the popstar Marilyn. In all circumstances, really, but particularly in the Derby Dead Pool. Marilyn's real name is Peter Robinson – presumably he was entered as that because of the database's aversion to mononyms, and he got lost in translation. - The picture in Pete Gilbey's bio is actually of his son, George Gilbey. Pete Gilbey looks like this. (Also – and I'm sure this is an error it was submitted with – I'm not sure Pete Gilbey's name is actually Pete Gilbey. They're known as the Gilbey family, but some sources call him Pete McGarry.)

    "gagging" doesn't rhyme with "sharting"

    Derby Dead Pool 2018

    Not sure this counts as an error, but Marco Pierre White Jr on my 'Unpersons' team has a blank "Details to Follow" bio this year, even though I also had him last year and he was given a bio then. (He was confused for Marco Pierre White not-Jr when the pool first went online, but this was subsequently corrected.) Also, this is really petty but it's bothered me for the past 3 years: the description for my '#1 Hits' team – "Those who have had a UK number 1 hit single either solo or as a group..." – ought to end "in a group", "as part of a group", "as a member of a group", something like that. There are no entire groups on there. It'd be great if all 20 came together as a charity supergroup for the particularly mortal, but it hasn't happened yet.

    I think he's done enough of that already.
