All these names cry for an update, and it's a big one.

Lots of points for lots of people, many picked Sarah Harding, Jimmy Greaves and Abdelaziz Bouteflika. Etib also gets points for Jean-Paul Belmondo and Gooseberry Crumble with another unique hit, Jane Powell. Plus, Amy Winifred Hawkins is a hit for Great Uncle Bulgaria. Book and Chilean way also had Neddy Smith, the Australian serial killer. Finally, we have a replacement hit with Terry Lubbock, for quite a few players. And as an aside note, of course, I managed, even with only two replacement slots for myself, to switch out Suzy Friton who would have been a unique hit for me (not changing my rank a lot though).

 

The resulting scoreboard doesn't show a lot of switched places, well except for the big jumps of Great Uncle Bulgaria and also Bibliogryphon, but Cpt. Chorizo's lead is now back to more than a hundred points.

He was my joker, for whatever that's worth.

Alright, let's get this out of the way....

Greg Gilbert is the massive hit of this update. He was picked very often, sometimes as a joker. Second-biggest hit: Bernard Tapie. And thanks for your notes, Betty Lynn and Ruthie Tompson are also hits here. Plus, there is Ally McLaws, a keen hit as a replacement for some. And finally, a skilled solo hit for Salmon Mousse for Egyptian defense minister Tantawi. Still, because of Ally McLaws, Cpt. Chorizo's lead grows further, and is now at 180 points.

 

Morris Perry, so far, is a non-obit, sadly.

Lively update after two weeks...

We have two popular replacement hits, Alan Igglesden and James Michael Tyler. We have the two oldies mentioned above, Mort Sahl,and Lionel Blair. And then today, we had Andrew McDonald.

Big beneficiary of it all is Joey Russ who suddenly jumps to second and actually manages to shrink Cpt. Chorizo's lead by a third:

Gary Burgess should be a hit this year for me which would make up more ground to Chorizo, but outside of him no idea where I can sneak that win. If only that LG Petrov Yahoo obit translated to the UK…

Val Bettin is a hit for me if he ever gets a QO.

Alright, recent events require an update...

 

Everyone and their dog has picked David Gulpilil, but not a single use as a joker. Everyone except for a few dogs has picked Sir Frank Williams. However, I just noticed that there is also "Dad's Army" Frank Williams, and I didn't check in January which one you meant - so it's SIR Frank Williams for everyone, seems weird to pick the other one when the racing boss was the much likelier bet. Dean Stockwell is an, of course, unique hit for Gooseberry Crumble. Clarissa Eden is a unique pick for The Old Crem. 20 points is better than no points...

And well, no obit for Val Bettin it seems. And so far, no obits for Belinda Sykes and Mustafa Cengiz.

 

The result:

Rank Team Score
1 Cpt. Chorizo 1539
2 JoeyRuss 1377
3 Salmon Mousse 1359
4 Death Impends 1268
5 Banana 1189
