This morning's winner is apparently the Redskins fans who have finally managed to chase away one half of the dynamic duo that's ruining their lives. Of course, the Joker killed Robin and that didn't stop Batman from kicking his ass.


Vinny Cerrato—the now former executive vice-president of football operations in Washington—would be the "dumber" in most of the "Dumb and Dumber" signs that Skins fans aren't allowed to carry into Dan Snyder's precious sight. Oh, right ... Snyder! He's still there, isn't he? See, Cerrato answered to him for 10 years and even though the deck chairs have been rearranged, Danny Boy is still the captain of this particular Titanic. A moral victory, I guess?

Anyway, Cerrato resigned to the delight of millions, but not without firing one last cheap shot during his exit. He released a statement that was typical gracious nonsense—thank the owner, express disappointment, pretend you've left the pieces in place for the future—except for this one little middle finger:

"I've had the pleasure of working with some great coaches such as Joe Gibbs, Greg Blache and Sherman Lewis," Cerrato said.

Not pictured: Actual head coach Jim Zorn. Seriously, if Greg Blache is getting a shout out and you're not, someone is definitely trying to send you a message. (That message is: "You suck, Jim Zorn.")
