Every site still showing a Tim Bilton "obit" shouldn't count for any deadpool whatsoever. These ones are the worst kind of copy/paste with no own journalistic effort.

I saw them during the Cup much too often, and was angry at them giving an english "obit" for the most marginal people.

"Usdaynews", "memesrandom", "topinfoguide", and so on and on. None of these are worth anything.

Just noticed that we haven't had any points for Sarah Lillian Priest, oldest UK person who died in June this year.

Yes, because shockingly she did not receive a single mention in a QO

Yes, him or the oldest person in the UK title holder. That was another surprise.

I have for the past few years included 'oldest people' in my HPDP teams, precisely because they are (were!) assured of a QO and therefore points; considering the press coverage she got when she reached 112, and later when she had her Covid jab, a real surprise that there's no mention of her death outside the 'specialist' websites.

Ashley and Madden take us to 270.

8 needed. Unless we have a crazy couple of days, that record isn't going to be smashed.

271 once Harry Reid’s QO comes in.

April Ashley,  Harry Reid,  John Madden.  Three DDP deaths today.  If the same happens for the next three  days and or q/o come through for other names earlier in the year then we surpass last years total.

What do you say?!!  @msc @gcreptile

 

Doable!

This is the photo on John Prescott's listing on the DDP.

Am I missing the joke here?

Oh, we had two John Prescotts, and it seems the wrong photo survived... meh. This one is a "Tom Jones Impersonator". It can be corrected next year though.

 

 

By the way, we now have 271 hits. 7 left to tie, 8 hits left to break the record. So we need some more year-end list obits. If you find any QOs, let me know. We are close.

Could be entering the 2021 DDP with Sean Lock, Paul Ritter and Nikki Grahame.

Seems like 2021 will end for me in the top 10 with 10 hits. Best finish ever. Next year - podium!

Be careful what you wish for Eesti. That podium is cursed - cursed I tell you   :old:

If nothing changes in the next couple of hours, I'll have finished 28th. I'll take that for a debut. And a respectable, erm, 431st for A Bunch Of Punts. 

 

My 2022 teams are in my shiny new signature.
