"What are The Darwin Awards?" some of you may ask.
The Darwin Awards recognizes the zany way in some people have died throughout the year.
Or, as its fun-loving Web site states: "Where Evolution Hits the Pavement"
"A handicapped man, annoyed that an elevator closed and departed without him, thinks it over before ramming his wheelchair into the doors not once, not twice, but three times in all--only to plunge down the now-empty elevator shaft to his death."Wow! How stupid can you get?
14 August 2010, Kentucky | Kelita H. was travelling "at highway speed" in her Chevy, cruising down Country Road 519 with the wind blowing through her hair, when she and her passenger decided to swap seats. In this situation, a less hasty person would stop the car for a "Chinese fire drill" but Kelita was a little more creative than that. Fortunately, you see, her car had an open T-Top.OMG! I think I would've just waited for the next rest stop, but maybe that's just me.
She stood up, pulled herself onto the roof, and she fell. And then Kelita was travelling solo "at highway speed" down that country road.
The Fayette County Coroner's Office reported that the 20-year-old died from injuries sustained while impacting a guardrail.
The Darwin Awards is America's Funniest Home Videos meets Faces of Death -- there's something for everyone!
Be sure to buy the deluxe leatherbound edition for your loved ones. Christmas just isn't Christmas without The Darwin Awards under the tree.
I should know. I'm not only a fan, I'm also an entry from 2009.
