The Darwin Awards

Not sure if people have heard about The Darwin Awards, but what they are named in honour of Charles Darwin, father of evolution, to "commemorate those who improve our gene pool by removing themselves from it", its organisers say. It's usually posthumous.

Some of the stories are really funny like the latest one of:

a man had to be cut from a steel pipe by seven firefighters when he managed to
get his penis stuck in it. There is still no explanation of how this occurred,
though the article did say he could not be removed from the pipe at first
because his constricted blood-flow made him aroused.

If you think that's funny there are loads more like.......Belgium police received a desperate call from a 37 years old man saying that he had been attacked on a motorway.

A 17-year-old male in Longview, WA spent his New Year's Day in a hospital, thanks to first and second degree burns sustained on his chest, abdomen, pelvis, hands, and feet.
