So, we have Eich and we have Sterling. And deaths come in threes. So, who is the next person to get their career/livelihood destroyed by someone revealing personal information and projecting it out beyond its scope? Who is next to find themselves on the end of a pitchfork in a circle of torches?

5 GG to the winner.


By name: 50 points
By industry: 30 poitns
Within 48 hours: 10 points
Within 3 hours: 20 points


Ballots must be in by the end of 5/3/2014... or before the scandal breaks if it can't wait that long.

We all know this is coming. Why shouldn't you profit from it?

Jeremy Clarkson, apparently.

He used the nursery rhyme 'Eeny, meeny, miny, mo' during the filming of an episode of top gear and mumbled the word 'nigger' where it would have been during his childhood. They then re-filmed the scene with him saying 'teacher' instead of 'nigger'.

The original tape then leaked onto the internet and tumblr is predictably throwing a bitch fit.

They're emboldened. They're going to aim high and go straight at religion.

Does he hate homosexuality?

If he does, then he is more likely to have his career/livelihood destroyed by his own congregation after getting caught with a gay prostitute.

So they won't go at him with a direct "See how evil this guy is" approach. More likely it would be some comment about how he views his flock/congregation.

Quit treating homosexuality like trying to get a two year old to eat broccoli.

I doubt it. Clarkson has survived controversies worse than this.

As the judge of the contest, I am deeming this to not count.

In order to participate, I'd have to work up to caring that someone doesn't get to be a CEO or sports team owner. I'm more interested in recent estimates that 4% of death row inmates are innocent. Put "destroyed" into perspective.

Fine. Then give us the next innocent person who will be condemned to death row. Nobody can accuse me of not being flexible...

I am proud to have opposed those who describe all who oppose them as "Tender Flowers" and "Special Snowflakes".
