Jesse Ventura loses cool on Opie and Anthony Show
On the heels of Hart Van Denburg's cover story on Jesse Ventura, the pro wrestler-turned-governor-turned-conspiracy theorist had quite the outburst on this morning's Opie and Anthony radio show.

Insults and expletives ensue.
Being an ex-pro wrestler, Ventura is obviously no stranger to theatrics. And with his new conspiracy-themed show set to debut tonight, this could very well be a publicity stunt. That said, but the stream of expletives pouring from Ventura's mouth as he stormed out of the studio seemed pretty believable. Take a listen for yourself:
