    Alt Obituaries Deadpool

    Thanks, Joey. I have Ken Nordine in my list on another website with more participants than aodeadpool.org, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I have a site-wide solo there too for points galore. He's not in the pool with 197 people playing so I have hope.

    Last week I shared an aodeadpool duet with Rosamunde Pilcher hit.

    The 2nd Death of 2019

    My first Random.org list randomizer yielded Vera Lynn at 1, Loretta Lynn at 2. I randomized again, and Vera Lynn was at 2, Loretta further down. I voted Vera Lynn. (This am I dreamed of receiving an email announcement of Gay Byrne's death. I don't have immediate recollection of choosing Byrne in any pools, nor Banks. It was interesting to me that the GB initials manifested in the dream but the name was incorrect.)

    Ozzy Osbourne

    It's only because I'm a bettor and not a doctor that I would estimate Osbourne's creatophosphokinase levels to be elevated from muscle damage. Lung damage could lead to a pulmonary embolism. High blood pressure is a contributing factor, especially if it was high enough to require hospitalization.

    The Joker's Dead Pool 2019

    If this is a motion the host is seriously considering, along with revealing the bonuses, I volunteer to randomize the team's host as I'm not participating this year and am disinterested.

    Derby Dead Pool 2019

    This is the first year I submitted multiple theme teams to the Derby Dead Pool -- the Grim Reaper's been a busy egalitarian this month, taking one each from my lists.

    The 2019 Deathlist Cup

    I submitted my team, expecting early elimination like a night-time drink of magnesium citrate.

    4. Prince Phillip Duke Of Edinburgh

    will the Queen visit the injured survivors? "We're sorry. He should have had a driver, no question..."

    4. Prince Phillip Duke Of Edinburgh

    My grandmother emerged "unhurt" after the car her husband was driving turned over, and died an hour later of a massive heart attack. She was a year older than Prince Charles, very fit, and had longevity genes equal to that of the Queen Mother and Queen Elizabeth II -- four of her sisters passed ninety years mark, one was a centenarian.

    Deathrace 2019

    I knew of Dorothy Morrison only from this website. "Our Gang" members typically get a QO where I am -- Mildred Kornman (aka Ricki Van Dusen) has a good chance of a qualifying obit when she passes. The Little Rascal Pro Boards contributors haven't deleted Morrison from their list of surviving "OG"/"LR" cast. I'm happy my sub comes into play.
