Spooky times are near. Is that chill that just ran up your spine because of a ghost passing through you, or did an idiot just walk up behind you and mouth-breathe on your neck? It’s time to vote for Idiot of the Week for October 27, 2014! The winner will eventually get an award certificate to download and print, suitable for framing and using as toilet paper — probably in that order. Until we get that certificate designed, they will get to sit in our virtual dunce chair on our home page. Below the poll are the usual links to why these pumpkin-headed nominees are qualified. Winner posted Monday!
The Candidates for October 27, 2014
The City Government of Norcross, Georgia, USA: The city government sold a woman’s condominium over a late tax bill. The bill was just $95, and there was evidence she wasn’t receiving the notices they sent since the notices were being returned. Even then, no one thought to contact someone who otherwise regularly paid her bills until they sent someone to kick her and her four-year-old child out of their home. We’re going to need a bigger dunce chair.
Casey Nocket: Ms. Nocket is travelling to various USA national parks for art’s sake. Unfortunately, the art in question is her painting and drawing on federally protected natural rockfaces as well as climbing over historic rock art. The truly idiotic part: she takes pictures of her graffiti for self-promotion and helps the National Park Service by adding pictures of herself doing the vandalism. She’ll probably have a nice set of walls to draw on soon enough.
