"Hey, what's the worst that can happen?" ~ Dougie Albans, Village Idiot, April 16th, 1978
"....Mr. Albans, also known as Dougie, was found five miles away in the aftermath of the barbecue explosion, babbling about seeing the elephant. He was examined by doctors, who pronounced him stable but stupid." ~ news reporter, two days later
The notion of the Darwin Awards has been around awhile. Some very stupid people (okay, ninety nine percent of the time it's men, because yes, we're stupid, and yes, it usually starts with a watch this sort of line) have a tendency to test the bounds of the Darwinian concept of survival of the fittest. I thought I'd amuse myself, and hopefully you, with a few Darwin Award moments in pics.
Incidentally, my idiot ex-brother-in-law is a prime candidate for the Darwin Awards. He's a pretty dimwitted moron, after all. And he has no idea just how dumb he is. I keep expecting him to buy the farm someday by falling through the ice while ice fishing, or being one of those buffoons who drives a snowmobile into open water.
