Did anybody else feel a bump back there?
Well readers, it’s May 20th, time for me to announce the coveted Dumbass of the Month Award. The winner is…
Wait, Blog Guy, there are still 11 days to go in May. This hardly sounds fair.
The winner is Argentina soccer coach Diego Maradona, who ran over a cameraman while on his way to name the members of his squad for the World Cup finals.
Hmmmm. I’ll admit that’s pretty bad, but didn’t he stop to administer first aid and comfort the guy? Didn’t he kneel and pray?
No, Maradona stuck his head out the window and called the injured guy “an asshole.”
No, he didn’t.
Yes, he did. Here’s the video.
Hey, didn’t this same soccer coach have some other kind of problem a few months ago?
Yes, Maradona checked into a weight-loss clinic in Italy, and finance police promptly seized his earrings to help pay off his back taxes.
No, that wasn’t what I was thinking of. Didn’t he recently have to have surgery after his….
Right. His own Shar-Pei dog bit him in the face.
Hey, congrats on another excellent choice, Blog Guy. I can’t wait for the Dumbass Awards Dinner!
