Aubrey McClendon is a finalist for the Worst CEO of the 2012

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse for Aubrey McClendon, we were alerted to this bit of information by an Ogle Mole.

The Motley Fool is currently in the middle of a contest to find the Worst CEO of 2012. It’s kind of like “Worst of OKC” combined with “Ogle Madness,” only not nearly as cool, expansive or popular.

Proving there really is a blog for everything, I recently stumbled across a website called The Greatest 21 Days. The site focuses on minor league baseball cards, and more specifically, “1990 CMC and Pro Cards minor league baseball card sets, and what happened to each of the players it contained.” And no, I’m not making that up.

We’ve discovered OKC’s version of Iron Man. Her name is Ms. McDonald.

The lady pictured above is Ms. McDonald. If she looks like your typical Oklahoma State Fair goer, well, it’s because she probably is. But get this. She’s also a local vigilante crime fighter. Over the weekend, she broke up a gang of Oklahoma City house burglars and did it all from the comfort of here motorized wheel chair.
