Yesterday, after the Post-Dispatch's David Hunn revealed that Stan Kroenke had dissed St. Louis as "lagging" in his relocation proposal to the NFL
, all of us, predictably, went a little bit nuts. Mayor Slay blasted Kroenke as "absent and unavailable." The normally milquetoast Governor Nixon took a shot at the Rams' lackluster play. #kroenkecomplaints
started trending on Twitter.

But that wasn't enough for some St. Louisans. No sirree! They decided to take things to a whole new level, spending their hard-earned money to mail Kroenke an actual box (or two) of shit.
As of press time, 27 people had ponied up — handily raising $260 toward the $250 goal.
The shit-sending GoFundMe campaign
was the brainchild of local podcaster Kelly Manno
, who's promising to place the order on the air during her broadcast on
Monday. And lest you wonder about the exorbitant cost, this whole shit-mail campaign is not as simple as scooping up a few dog turds and popping them in the mail. Manno is promising to send 10 pounds of crap to three different addresses — with less overhead than most charities.
"The crew at The Kelly Manno Show have acquired three of Stan's home addresses," the campaign promises. "They have also teamed up with a professional animal shit packing and delivery service who are willing to donate their shipping for free. This means EVERY dollar you donate will go directly to a turd to be placed in the box."
Our favorite part? Someone donated to the campaign using the name of "Francis Slay." We're not saying it was actually
the mayor, but hey — if we'd done everything we could to mollify a greedy bastard like Kroenke, even coming up with $150 million when we're practically broke, well, we'd be kicking in $10, too.
