The Assassins' Circle, Kill Thread 5

So the Loney Fan Gambit claims another life - that of our last female assassin, Karina. And MLASF, at the time of this writing, is still MIA. Here's the complete list of yesterday's dead:

  1. Sax (by Dusty)
  2. Dusty (by rbn)
  3. Karina (self inflicted via Loney Fan Gambit)
  4. MLASF (self inflicted)

It's down to the Final Four plus a fifth guy. Slay away!

Just FYI, cumulative body count is 23. Last year at this time we had 25. Step it up, chumps.

BRAINS!!!

Josh S. said...

BRAN!!!!

(Seriously, an all-brain diet does your digestive system no good.)

Dusty Baker said...

You fuckin pansies.

Josh S. said...

EK should just post the thread at 2:59.

MR. F said...

Not enough death in this thread. KILL!!!!

Eric Karros said...

I should disable comments at 2:59.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Lets ROCK!

Eric Karros said...

I think I mislabeled the years on graph...will try to correct it as soon as I can since I'm sure many of you are using the data for highly critical purposes

Steve Sax said...

That would be legendary, EK

MR. F said...

It should be part of the rules that the comments are disabled at some random time between 2:50 and 3:00 P.M. That'd spice things up.

Dusty Baker said...

I think a plane just crashed into a mountain after plugging this faulty graph into its shipboard computer.

Josh S. said...

ZZZZZzzzzzzz...

Steve Sax said...

On Call of Duty MW2, we would call these remaining assassins "campers"

Dusty Baker said...

Zombie Dusty up in dis bish. Want braaaaaains. Want RB braaaaaains!!!

J. Steve said...

It's amazing to me that there will most likely be 5 hours between the initiator and the second actual comment!

Dusty Baker said...

Was reviewing yesterday's AC kill thread just now. I can't stop laughing at Karina's comment: "In fact, I got conflicting edit and friggin 503.". Friggin 503 theme needs to be worked into something now.

Neeebs said...

Enough of this pussy footing around.

RBN, if you are out there, your saving is in my hands.

Bang!

Josh S. said...

DEATH!!

Josh S. said...

Spank shot first.

Paul said...

Die you over voweled yet musically talented green alien!!!

QuadSevens said...

We have a kill!!!

Josh S. said...

FINALLY!

Now it's rbnlaw's game to lose, unless he mucks it up by saving Paul.

Mr. Customer said...

*Jumps out from behind a dumpster with a cricket bat.*

MR. F said...

It's a mallet!

Josh S. said...

Oh shit! A cricket bat! No fair, I'm already dead.

Paul said...

Awwwww

I wanted to live long enough not to have brains for lunch.

Josh S. said...

Said dumpster is behind the El Toro Cantina and Mr. C's been there since July 31st.

Paul said...

Wait is this a Tarintino script?

Mr. Customer said...

@JoshS

Free WiFi and half-eaten Tamales!

Neeebs said...

Paul:

You're buying me some pisco as I wander off to the AC Bar.

I consider your arrival as a suicide, as you should have known that MC was waiting in the shadows to kill you.

Alas, back to opposing a discovery motion.

Neeebs said...

Three of five are already dead.

Dusty Baker said...

There's also a couple more of them pink tequila thingies sitting around, too, Mr C.

Neeebs said...

And the ONLY way for RBN not to lose is for him to fall off the face of the earth between now and 3:00pm.

See what you did Paul? You done ended the game.

I'm going to haunt you for awhile by playing the Flaming Menudos Greatest Hits on the AC Bar Jukebox for the next five hours.

Neeebs said...

^"to lose"

Josh S. said...

There is another scenario, Neeebs, but I'm being careful not to spell it out.

MR. F said...

SPELL SPELL SPELL

Josh S. said...

At least, I think there is...let me consult the Necromomicon.

Josh S. said...

Yep. I was right.

rbnlaw said...

What the hell? I was registering my kid at school, and I come back to premature carnage?

I need a rundown.

Josh S. said...

Dammit. Nevermind.

Yeah, rbn has this locked up.

Josh S. said...

WINNAH!

rbnlaw said...

Is this what they call backing in to a win?

If so, awesome.

Spank Raving Mad said...

We all Dead

rbnlaw said...

Tell the barkeep at the AC bar to put it on my tab from last year boys and girls, and drink up!

Josh S. said...

Now that it doesn't matter:

I was thinking Spank could shield Mr. C with his kill comment, making things spill over until tomorrow.

However, that scenario is negated by the "if two players are left, the one with the most kills wins" rule.

Dusty Baker said...

There is indeed another scenario by my count, but I defer to the book of the dead as the final authority, with perhaps some further clarification provided by any Metallica song from Ride the Lightning.

Eric Karros said...

I believe rbn just locked it up. Let me go behind the hood to verify...

rbnlaw said...

Tipping a 40 for mah dead homiez.

Dusty Baker said...

Never mind now.

Spank Raving Mad said...

I am thinking since we are all dead and rb and I are tied with 3, overtime?

Dusty Baker said...

*gives RBN a Colt 45 shower*

Eric Karros said...

"If the last round eliminates all players, the last one to die in that round wins."

He also had the most kills, although turns out he didn't need them.

So I think it's rbn with the chicken dinner tonight!

Josh S. said...

So even with the Faberuben rule, the other half of the alliance still wins it. That's, uh, well, nothing really.

Congrats, lawman!

Spank Raving Mad said...

Oh well Back to normal life

Dusty Baker said...

Could Spank have used his initiator shot from the afterlife to dictate a different outcome?

Dusty Baker said...

I feel like summer vacation over now.

Josh S. said...

Dusty, if he had used it on Neeebs or Paul, then yes, things would be different. Once they were dead, it was all rbn unless he pulled a MLASF.

Josh S. said...

I now want to show that^ paragraph to me from two years ago and watch myself try to make sense of it.

Josh S. said...

Alright! Time to clean up the zombies!

J. Steve said...

Glad I didn't wait until 3 to check back on the carnage! Congrats!

Dusty Baker said...

Bring out yer dead!

Hey wait, doesn't someone need to kill RBn so he can join us at the AC tavern?

J. Steve said...

Didn't Spank technically kill him with his second shot?

rbnlaw said...

I have an afterlife pass to the bar. Got my lifetime exemption by being runner up last year.

Thanks to all. Again, my favorite game here at SOSG. Now where's that chicken dinner, EK?

Spank Raving Mad said...

Drinking Steel Reserve out of my pimp cup at the AC bar

Eric Karros said...

Yeah we'ze all dead. Spank buys rbn a drink, who's got Mr C, who's covering Paul, who's taking care of Neeebs, who's paying Spank's tab.

Either that or you can each buy your own drink.

Eric Karros said...

Prize will be announced shortly. Congrats rbn!

Fred's Brim said...

congrats, RB! I am glad my partner from last season could win it this year

Dusty Baker said...

I'll give you one of my virgins when EK finally comes through on them, RBN.

Loney Fan said...

I'm just glad I got to kill Quad this year after beefing it last year

Mr. Customer said...

I've seen Dusty's virgins. Rbn should take a rain check.

Neeebs said...

If Spanky is drinking, I'm a buying.

Farewell to Kings on the Jukebox for you Mr. Spank.

rbnlaw said...

Man, Colt 45 stings when it gets in the eyes.

But it's the sting of victory.

Thanks to my Faberuben brutha from a different mutha.

Mr. Customer said...

I had to put my house up as collateral at the AC Bar, but you're covered, Paul.

Paul said...

Wait wait wait Counselor Neeebs before you go on to the sanctions section of your motion ( make sure you put in your attorney rate and not the band rate which I believe is 50k a hour plus unlimited tripe and fritos), I was thinking Mr. C wouldn't ruin the game as he was the last man standing.

Mr. C must have really wanted to kill me.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Right On for that dedication NEEEBS

BTW I saw Rush friday night in Irvine Meadows and had an altercation at the Hilton Doubletree entrance. Both were bad ass.

Next round on me peeps

Paul said...

Thanks Mr. C that should cover us for a few weeks. I am asking for a 1964 Rhone cuvee.

Oh and a sixer of Natty Bo.

Mr. Customer said...

@Paul

Actually, the best I could have done was delay the inevitable by one day. You killed Neeebs, so it wouldn't matter who I would be matched against in the final two, since I wasn't on the kill board.

Also, I had a cricket bat, and you were RIGHT THERE!

Paul said...

Did I mess this up? Darn it. But I needed a kill as well. Since everyone kept offing themselves around me.

Mr. Customer said...

The only scenario that would have worked for me would have been if I was the only survivor of the potential next round, which doesn't seem likely with 3 players.

Steve Sax said...

I can't believe this all played out before 3pm

Spank Raving Mad said...

Looking back I don't know what the fuck I was thinking coming out first. Too much coffee I guess. I'll blame LoneyFan for making a Kill comment with the word "test" in KT3 that kept me in hysterics for 2 days.

Meaniebreanie said...

Today was a good day to die!

Meaniebreanie said...

Fred's Back! People were wondering about you. Did you leave us because you actually have a life or were you so disgusted that you took an SoSG sabbatical? Anyhow you were missed and we're glad you're back.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Damn it stinks in this fucker

Somebody get a mop
