It remains to be seen whether prosecutors will charge two University of Missouri undergraduates with a felony hate crime for dumping cotton balls at the school's black cultural center. But there is one offense that the duo is definitely guilty of: ass clownery.

By a slim margin Mizzou students Sean Fitzgerald and Zacahry Tucker beat out a Metro East stripper accused of child endangerment to win last Friday's Ass Clown of the Week vote. Forty-one percent of Daily RFT readers elected Fitzgerald and Tucker for the honor. Patrice Johnson, the stripper found hiding in a closet, earned 32 percent.

Oh, and this weekend Fitzgerald and Tucker apologized for their actions though their attorneys, who added that the young men had also climbed campus statues and raised a pirate flag outside the ROTC office. And, yes, alcohol was involved.
