Moron of the Week Award #6

June 19, 2009 by admncc

In addition to this week’s award, I just wanted to mention a few other things…

First, if you haven’t yet commented on the “A Life vs. 30 Days” post, make sure you do so today.  I’m running a contest where anyone commenting on that post will be entered to win a $50 American Express Gift Card and a The Constant Complainer t-shirt.  The winner will be announced tomorrow morning.

Thank you to everyone for the kind words and congratulations for reaching our first anniversary.  Running this blog has been a lot of fun and I hope this is only the beginning.

Now for our award!  Because of his sheer stupidity, rather than accepting nominations, I decided to award Chad Johnson (of the Cincinnati Bengals) the “Moron of the Week Award” for this week.

Johnson legally changed his name to “Ocho Cinco” last year.  His jersey number is 85.  He wanted the Spanish text placed on the back of his jersey, instead of his last name.  But he screwed up.  First, 85 in Spanish is not “Ocho Cinco” – it is “Ochenta y Cinco.”  Second, his formal name change application appears as “Ochocinco” so that’s how it will now appear on his jersey…  You can view the Sports Illustrated story here.

Speaking of the “Moron of the Week Award” – feel free to comment below and nominate people or stories for next week…

    Cool shirt logo. I love this weekly award. I nominate my cell phone company for being completely incapable of billing me properly.

  2. Hal says:

    I enjoyed your Lettermoron post last week. With that being said, I think you should have given this week’s award to David Letterman. But Chad Johnson is well deserving of it too.

    The funny thing is that even though Letterman was in the news all of last week, Conan still beat him. Poor Dave.

    According to the Associated Press, “the Delaware State Fire Marshal’s Office said a man damaged a toilet at an Arby’s by setting off fireworks in the bathroom.”

    The maniac is still on the loose.

    Must be a slow news day in Delaware.

    I have a few to nominate

    Also, I don’t know how to post links to stories or I would have included the articles with them.

    1. PETA and their disgust over the President killing a fly on televsion(good grief)
    *memo to PETA, your outrage will make my steak that I am going to eat tonight that much more delicious!

    2.The principal of a highschool in Sweden who posted sexually explicit pictures and groups on his facebook page and then was surprised that they fired him, claiming they were part of his private life.

    3. The Chicago man who robbed a bank on the north side of the city last week and then proceeded to try and deposit the ink stained cash at his regular bank earlier this week.

    and last but not least

    4. The marijuana dealer in Melbourne, Florida who was robbed during a “business transaction” and then called 911 to report that theives had stolen his money and his pot.

    Seriously, you couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried.

  5. He’s like a porn star changing his last name to Seis Nueve.

  6. If the world wasn’t full of morons, what would we talk about it?

  7. Jane says:

    I agree with RG. My day would be very dull. LOL.

  8. Leo Nevoli says:

    It has to be Chad this week, and jsut about any week during the football season. Considering last week when talking about his QB Carson Palmer: “I know people are trying to say we’re mad at each other and all that, but we’re good. We’re like Brokeback Mountain,”
    That may not have been the best thing to say.

  9. I’ve been in the mountains for too many days on my mini-vaca so I have no good moron nominations. I will have to second all the above. I agree with Timmy, you really couldn’t make this stuff up!

  10. Extreme John says:

    Priceless. Don’t forget that Reebok also would not reprint his Jersey with the new name until it had sold through it’s entire stock of existing Johnson jerseys, which was some crazy number that will probably never happen. Moron.
