Billionaires, Yo-Yo Shamps, Bitter Breeders and Politicos: Who is Ass Clown of the Week?

Posted By on Fri, May 14, 2010 at 3:13 PM

Whoa! Friday has almost passed us by and we're just now posting the candidates for this week's Ass Clown of the Week. So sorry. Here they are in no particular order:

1. Stan Kroenke: How 'bout it? The billionaire keeps coming up with new and villainous ways to take control of the Rams. Now this week it was reported that Kroenke has asked the NFL to place the team in his wife's name.

2. Matt Bartle: A previous Ass Clown winner, the Kansas City state senator got his way this week when the legislature passed a bill that could soon drive all Missouri strip clubs out of business.

3. Darryl Isaac: The Centreville, Illinois, pit-bull breeder who's bite is worse than his bark. Issac stands accused of shooting another Metro East pit-bull breeder in an attempt to settle a long-running feud.

4. Kenny Strasser: The yo-yo "shamp" (sham + champ) who appeared on two Missouri news stations last week after telling them he was a champion yo-yo artist. Strasser, it turns out, has remedial yo-yo skills but does possess comic genius.

Cast your vote after the jump!
