Darwin Awards III: Survival of the Fittest
© 2003 Wendy Northcutt
The Darwin Awards are tongue-in-cheek “honors” given to adults who remove themselves from the gene pool by killing themselves in extraordinarily stupid ways, thus improving it. The home of the Darwin Awards is online, but from time to time awards find their way into collections such as this. I figured I’d check the book out for a few laughs. The stories in this book are not quite as funny as the original, but usually manage to be amusing, even if only mildly so. There are a few that are staggeringly funny, though. If you’re interested in the book, I’d first suggest you visit the website and sample a few of the wares first.
