The Darwin award honours those that seek to improveme the human genome by accidentally removing themselves from it, thereby ensuring that the next generation is one idiot smarter.
This year’s runner up prize was awarded to a Brazilian who tried to disassemble a rocket propelled grenade by repeated driving over it. The 2006 award went to two 21 year college students whose feet were found protruding from a deflated helium advertising balloon.
Disregarding the fundamental need for Oxygen to live, the pair pulled down the 8 foot balloon, and climbed inside. Their last words apparently consisted of high-pitched, incoherent giggling as they slowly passed out and passed into the hereafter.
Sheriff's deputies said the two were not victims of foul play. No drugs or alcohol were found. The medical examiner reported that helium inhalation was a significant factor in their deaths.
