AHOY. BUILDING DEMOCRACY IN THE PART OF THE GLOBE THAT MOST NEEDS IT: THE BUTT.

What Is A.H.O.Y.?

Asshole Of the Year.

Each year since 1974, voters around the globe have chosen the person who, more than any other, earned the name "Asshole."

Now, because you received an exclusive invitation or randomly stumbled onto this page, you can vote too!

Rank your top 10 choices. Your first-place asshole gets 10 points, your second place 9, and so on.

We've given you some suggestions in the entry below. But don't limit yourself to those names.

Post your ballot in the comments section. Famous names only; no voting for your boss.

We'll do the rest.
