The Assassins' Circle, Kill Thread 3

Defending champ is down! Fred's Brim, apparently with something better to do than not die, fell off the end of the 3pm time-continuum universe and was thusly eliminated. So then who becomes the favorite? Last year's finalist rbnlaw? Kills co-leaders Spank, Loney Fan, or MLASF? You decide. In the meantime, pile on eight more bodies from last round!:

  • Meaniebreanie (by Neeebs)
  • Greg Finley (by Orel)
  • Orel (by Spank RM)
  • S Dittmore (by J Steve)
  • J Steve (by Loney Fan)
  • Mr F (by MLASF)
  • OT Bound (by Wicks)
  • Fred's Brim (self-inflicted)

Here's the updated circle:

And here's the side-conversation thread (let Mr F serve as a cautionary tale - don't get your threads mixed up!).

Good mornin' y'all!

Dusty Baker said...

Ggg

Josh S. said...

Photo-less brains!

Greg said...

Damn, I figured posting early in the morning wouldn't draw out dusty who hasn't been posting until the afternoons! Ah well. Damn you Dusty, I wanted to kill Sax before you eventually got me :P

Josh S. said...

Rub-a-dub-dub, no one gets to butcher Baker.

Dusty Baker said...

It's quit out here...too quiet. *pulls cowboy hat down low over his eyes, takes another gander at the horizon, re-loads*

Josh S. said...

One brain to hold me until 3?

I should have packed a Hot Pocket.

Dusty Baker said...

Or a Hot Socket, keeping with the feasting on corpses theme.

MR. F said...

I wish I brought some cookies to work myself.

Eric Karros said...

I expect a lot of action at 3pm.

Dusty Baker said...

@EK

But what do you think will happen this afternoon in Assassin's Circle?

Josh S. said...

Heh. Dusty's comment was in line with what I was thinking.

For the record, my joke was going to be "...like a guy who only dates high school girls?"

Dusty Baker said...

Nice one, Josh.

Josh S. said...

I can hear the wind whistling through the holes in my torso.

Dusty Baker said...

This is some I Am Legend shit going down here. Mr C is Will Smith lying in a bathtub with his dog by his side.

Josh S. said...

GOD DAMMIT FRED('S BRIM)!!!

Eric Karros said...

And I'm Will Smith hitting on mannequins in the video store.

Todd Hundley said...

*peeks in* seems like the calm before the storm

Dusty Baker said...

For the record, I'm the Prince of Bel Air.

Dusty Baker said...

Josh needs to feed, folks.

Josh S. said...

It's cool. You know this neighborhood, DB. I'm sure a cabeza taco is just steps away.

Dusty Baker said...

You could just pop over to the cabeza taco truck if there weren't such a long line of hipsters waiting for the latest over-priced but mediocre "it" food. Alternately you could just feed on the hipsters.

Josh S. said...

Hipster brains?! I'd rather go to Arby's.

Dusty Baker said...

Where do you think Arby's gets their "roast beef" supply?

Greg said...

lol@dusty. nasty but effin' hilarious.

Dusty Baker said...

I just want to kill Kill KILL!!!

Wicks said...

I am risking myself to possibly takeout Hundley........if I die........I DIE!!!!!!!!!

Eric Karros said...

Is killing another worth the possibility of being killed yourself?

Meaniebreanie said...

MB sits on the sidelines with her feet propped up and sipping a cold one. She waits along with the other zombies to see what carnage unfolds.

Josh S. said...

I don't mind stealin' brains from the heads of decadence...

...but I'm growin' hungry (growin' hungry)...

MR. F said...

@EK: Life is short. Kill while you can.

Josh S. said...

Gonna go get a snack, so I can be back in time for the cluster bomb.

MR. F said...

While on topic... why have I only just now heard of the novel: "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"?

rbnlaw said...

@@@@@@@@@@@
Rapid fire kill of Wicks.

Now back to this one.

rbnlaw said...

Underground my ass.

karina said...

enjoy your martines,whoever you are!

Spank Raving Mad said...

Gotcha!

rbnlaw said...

Conflicting edit anyone?

Steve Sax said...

bang

Spank Raving Mad said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

IN IT TO WIN IT

Steve Sax said...

shoot, did I shield karina or not?

rbnlaw said...

SAVED BY kARINA!!!

Paul said...

Gasp!

Dusty Baker said...

Too much smoke...I can't see what happened yet.

Neeebs said...

Garrote!

Mr. Customer said...

*blam*

Loney Fan said...

TEST

Spank Raving Mad said...

saved by sax

Loney Fan said...

Fucking conflicting EDITS!!!!!

Mr. Customer said...

Let God sort'em out.

rbnlaw said...

I hate to say I actually had a strategy there, because it clearly points out my lack of something more important to do.

Neeebs said...

Wow, a lot of angling going on here.

Paul said...

Neeebs saved me!! We are like Thelma and Louise!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Karina threw the entire thing off.

Josh S. said...

ZOMBIE LIKE!

rbnlaw said...

Is there a Dodger game being rained on?

Loney Fan said...

I HAD IT! Damn conflicting edits!! What a bunch of crap!

Neeebs said...

LF waiting a wee bit too long and failing to compensate for conflicting edit certainty. Rookie mistake.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Karina ruined my strategy

"points fist to the sky"

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Time to count the dead.

Greg
T Hundley
Wicks
Loney Fan

rbnlaw said...

Early kill good.
Wait not good.

More brains for my zombified friends.

Neeebs said...

@Paul: I don't want to be the one who got screwed by Brad Pitt (figuratively/literally.)

karina said...

@Mr LASF @Spank blame the girl, right?

I was lucky,I didn't get any conflicting edits.

I even counted seconds to post.

Dusty Baker said...

Bring out yer dead! *rings bell*

Mr. Customer said...

@LF

If it makes you feel better, you'd probably still be dead if you were 3 seconds earlier.

Josh S. said...

Loney Fan didn't listen to my prediction in the other thread.

Now I will eat his brain.

Today was a good day.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Sax coming out of nowhere didn't help things either.

rbnlaw said...

As feared, it comes down to me zeroing in on DB.

Hey, fish gotta swim; assassins gotta kill.

karina said...

@Steve Sax you're the best, do you know that? thank you very much, you could have been killed.

Dusty Baker said...

Haters gonna hate, RBN.

MR. F said...

I need post-game analysis to explain exactly what happened there.

Mr. Customer said...

*switches monitoring channels over to "Paul"*

Eric Karros said...

There was a lot of inadvertent shielding going on. This is what I think happened.
- karina shielded rbnlaw
- spank tried to kill rbnlaw but instead inadvertently shielded karina
- Sax, who was already safe, shielded spank
- Neeebs shielded Paul despite Paul being Neeebs' stalker

And here's my dead count:
1. Greg (by Dustry)
2. Hundley (by Wicks)
3. Wicks (by rbnlaw)
4. Loney Fan (self-inflicted)

Please verify

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Sax couldn't have been killed. Dusty killed Greg.

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr F

Neeebs is an excellent AC historian. I can't wait for his presentation on how today went down.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Once I hit refresh, Spank had already shielded Karina, so all I had to do was wait for Sax.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm glad to note that AC has taken up almost my entire day today.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'll probably end up killing myself tomorrow anyway, since I'll be out for some time. But I'll take pleasure in the fact that if anyone would have killed me, it would have been me.

Neeebs said...

@DB:

Thanks, but I think EK beat me to the post.

But I did crawl past your house DB, on my way to the showdown. (See F.B.)

Spank Raving Mad said...

I waited to kill Rbn so I can possibly get shielded by accident.

Fuck It I'm still alive

karina said...

I'm proud of Mr F "@EK: Life is short. Kill while you can"

he wasn't able to hurt a fly and now he glorifies killing.

Dusty Baker said...

@MLASF

That's like "The only thing that can kill Barnes is Barnes" from Platoon.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Now I must meet a fate even worse than the AC. A trip to the DMV

Josh S. said...

Nothing can kill the Grimace.

Dusty Baker said...

Sing when you're killing
You only sing when you're killing

Where did everyone go?

Neeebs said...

Off to the game thread. There's still good carnage in there.

MR. F said...

@karina: Leaving the Assassins' Circle with no blood on my hands but mine own was a milestone event for me.

Steve Sax said...

I just want you guys to know I canceled a 2pm appt to try for a kill. Oh well.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

HAH! I find it laughable that you devoted so much attention to killing me, Sax. Very interesting, but shtupid.

Paul said...

Wow trying to kills neeebs and being stalked by Mr. C. It really is clowns to the left of me and jokers to the right.

Thanks for falling off the cliff loneyfan! I thought you would get me.

Dusty Baker said...

That's pretty strong, Sax.

Maybe I can one up you: I decided to call in via phone instead of joining in person a meeting in Sacramento tomorrow so that I could be in today's and tomorrow's AC and to go to Matt Kemp bobblehead tomorrow night.

Mr. Customer said...

@Paul

Assassin clowns?

*shudder*

Neeebs said...

@MC:

Hey now, I'm the Clown, you're the Joker. Get it right dammit.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Sowing through the dead carcasses I notice all the brains and carne off the cabeza are gone. Time to plunder the vital organs. MMM

Mr. Customer said...

@neeebs

Potayto / Potahto

Dusty Baker said...

I see the DMV trip has made you hungry, Spank.

Spank Raving Mad said...

It wasn't as bad as I thought Dusty,
I must have had my AC face on still cause I got helped promptly and courteously. A new for me.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty: AC and I will be at tomorrow's game too, ready to see the latest Dodgers bullpen implosion!

Dusty Baker said...

You're bringing the Assassin's Circle to the game? Cool! This will be better than sausage races for sure.

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

Mrs Dusty, MDIL, and I will be in section 47RS, Row H, Seats 10 - 12.

Paul said...

Dusty,

give your kemp bobblehead a pep talk but watch out for the Dave Stewart bobblehead.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm going to bench the little bobbling bastard until he comes to my office and we have a chance to talk it out.
