Poll: Vote on the ‘Moron of the Year’ for 2017!

There’s no denying it’s a tight race, but there can only be one winner.

As we close the book on 2017, it’s time to reflect on some of the dimwits we featured in our much-loved Moron of the Month posts. And we’ll be honest, there was never a shortage of shoe-ins to take this most dubious of titles.

We’ve compiled the best of the best from the last twelve months, and want you to help us decide which is most deserving of the overall top prize.

Here are the moronic finalists:


Hitting a defenseless deer over the head with a textbook is beyond shameful. Thankfully, the courts agreed. (See original story here.)



There’s taking risks and then there’s just plain stupidity. Is a walleye really worth it? (See original story here.)

There’s nothing smarter than teasing a 500-pound alligator while dressed as a T-Rex. (See original story here.)


Cool if you’re going to shoot, but getting within feet of a rutting bull moose for the sheer thrill? Maybe not the smartest idea. (See original story here.)

aller regarder sa sa vaut la peine 😉 PARTAGER !

These boat repairs were done by a “professional.” You won’t believe what he did (and didn’t do)! (See original story here.)


Perhaps trying to get a cell phone picture of a grizzly bear from 10 feet away isn’t the smart move. (See original story here.)


Because dragging a shark backwards at full throttle is totally ethical, right? (See original story here.)

Note: After a four-month investigation, these morons have now been charged with felonies. Read that story here.


Jumping on a black bear with a spear seems totally safe. (See original story here.)


How did this even happen? (See original story here.)

Jet ski rams bass fisherman

This video is an important reminder to wear your life jacket and always be aware of your surroundings on the water! One of our friends in Minnesota was fishing recently when a jet ski rammed into his boat catapulting the young rider into the water, and forcing the fisherman to jump into the lake. Thankfully, neither person was injured, and both jet ski and boat sustained minimal damage.A far better outcome than what could have happened.

The only time anyone should be gored is during the running of the bulls… in Spain. (See original story here.)


What was this guy doing? (See original story here.)

Talk about a tight race! But we must crown one deserving moron. Who should it be, folks?
