The "Cat Ass Trophy" was a photograph I found on the Internet originally entitled "Catasstrophy". I liked it so much I decided to use it as an award for the "Asshole of the week". Obviously there is a plethora of candidates, so I try to use the candidate that stands out the most during any particular week. The finalists this week, in no particular order;
Judge Larry Korda: The Broward County Judge who presided over one the Anna Nicole Smith hearings and after national media attention of the hearing, decide to smoke a doobie in a public park and got busted.
Howard K. Stern: The barracuda and wannabe father, trying to get a piece every pie he touches and who has now filed two appeals trying a) to affect the juror selection into the inquest of the death of Anna Nicole Smith's son, Daniel and b) to stop and/or challenge the attempt to match the DNA of Ms. Smith's daughter, Danielynn with the other father wannabe's.
Dishonorable Mention: U.S. Attorney, Alberto Gonzales; The country of Iran; Larry "da judge" Seidlin.
After discussing this with my cat, Shithead, co-judge in this award, we have decided on a winner. The winner is:
Yeah, you guessed it. Howard K. Stern. It was a hands and paws down decision. Congratulations, Howard, here's you award.
