TheRinger.com held a March Madness-style competition to determine the biggest pop culture JERK of all time. And the winner was . . . Shooter McGavin from “Happy Gilmore”.
He squeaked past Eric Cartman from “South Park” in the final round, with 54% of the vote.
The competition started off with 64 JERKS, including Draco Malfoy, Gollum, Stifler from “American Pie”, Newman from “Seinfeld”, Jerry from “Tom & Jerry”, Biff from “Back to the Future”. . .
Phil Connors from “Groundhog Day”, Larry David from “Curb Your Enthusiasm”, Squidward from “SpongeBob SquarePants”, Veruca Salt from “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, and even Jim from “The Office”. (???)
I guess if you look at it from the perspective of Dwight, Roy, or Toby, Jim was a HUGE jerk. And he did beat “Real Housewife” Romana Singer in Round 1. But he lost to Biff in his next match.
The Final Four came down to Shooter, Cartman, Biff, and Larry David.
It’s funny that in a competition of fictional jerks. Larry David almost won playing a guy BASED ON HIMSELF. I have a feeling he’d be proud of that.
