Gonna be tough to beat Roger "Rat Man" Dier, who likes scruffy rodents so much he kept one he found, bought a few more, and LET THEM BREED, until there were 1,300 rats found in his Petaluma, Calif., home. Just one of those hobbies that slowly got out of control, he said.
But let's try.
If you haven't seen it, check out the ESPN video, of Asheville Tourists manager Joe Mikulik, who goes nuts over an ump's call, chucks second base and bats, and builds mudpies on home plate.
Then there's Allen Park, a Michigan man whose bright idea was to write "BULL[*BLEEP*] MONEY GRAB" on the $10 parking ticket he paid. Now he could get 30 days in jail for contempt of court.
Wait a sec. Here's a live one. A judge is Oklahoma is convicted of using "a penis pump" in his courtroom during trials! It was Donald Thompson's word against witnesses' -- nobody caught him red-handed.
And gotta have somebody local. So how about Mayor Street, for not being part of the city's pitch last Friday to bring the Olympics here?
Nationally, how about President Bush, whose human-rights-be-damned approach to prisoners (jailed for defiling human rights) earned a slapdown from the Supreme Court this week?
Or maybe you'd rather go Supreme Court, for the war-on-terrorism-handicapping ruling.
Don't have the stomach to include Star Jones Reynolds, but how about Rush Limbaugh? What, it's tough to get a prescription for Viagra? (His jokes. Better jokes.)
Come back in a couple of days for the Idiot of the Month poll. We'll include the winners from Week One, Week Two and Week Three.
