What would happen if a guy like me (5' 10", 145lbs.) bought and rode a bike designed for clydesdales. The bike in question is a Kona Hoss, and it looks to me like it would be fine, but is there really any reason for a smaller guy to not buy a clydesdale?
nope, but it'll probably be heavier than comparable bikes.
Meh, not really, I think the site said 31 lbs.
That bike, in 2002 and earlier was actually a freeride HT. Burly and tough, it was a ht build for good sized hits and very rough riding. It would in fact be heavier but there is no reason you can ride one.
Its a pretty good marketting trick really.
I think he meant "can't"

It would probably buck you right off of it. It has no respect for someone of your size. It will eat you alive.
Ride it and have fun.
