Los Angeles, CA: It's offical. After much deliberation by the citizens of LA and call-in votes from all over America, the dubious title of 'Village Idiot' has been bestowed upon rapper Kanye West after his latest tantrum on last Sunday's Video Music Awards on MTV.
In a village that has so many idiots to choose from, it was Kanye West who has the 'honor' of being elected to this important public position.
Make no mistake; the job of being Village Idiot is a vital, necessary role in every facet of society.
Especially in Los Angeles.
Past Village Idiots include Paris Hilton, Tom Cruise, Lindsey Lohan and Eminem.
Paris Hilton made her disapproval of Kanye's most recent antics known in what (for her) is the most damning put-down of all time, "That's so not hot."
Throughout time, most 'Village Idiots' have been relegated to verbal abuse, cruel pranks and having rotten food thrown at them by other, less stupid villagers.
However, in these times of 24 hour news networks, internet, twittering and celebretards getting press for so much as a fart, a new kind of riticule has been found to be most affective at shaming this new breed of "Village Idiot":
Complete and total indifference.
