Deadpool is full of countless pop culture references, jokes and Easter eggs. Like, literally countless. In fact, to catch all of the references, it would probably require watching the film over and over again. And even then… good luck.

We’re not going to go through every single joke we caught, because that would take forever. Plus, if you’re a fan of the film, it would be probably old news anyway. But we DID just discover one little Easter egg that’s so cheeky and sly, we need to bring it to your attention.

You probably know that Deadpool chose his name as a nod to the “dead pool” — the running bet that takes place at Sister Margaret’s Home for Wayward Girls. The bar is frequented by its fair share of murderous folks, many of whom could easily drop dead at any moment. Hence, “dead pool.”

And you probably remember when Deadpool‘s bestie Weasel (T.J. Miller) bet that Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) would be the next patron to croak.

And now, thanks to Comicbook.com, we now know that the majority of the folks listed on the dead pool chalk board aren’t all Deadpool characters — they’re real-life celebrities.

Included on the list are Charlie Sheen, Ryan Reynolds, Vladimir Putin, Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Bynes, Kanye West, Ozzy Osbourne, among a few other somewhat notorious celebs.

Very sneaky, Deadpool. Very Sneaky.
