The Darwin Awards are not about the survival of the fittest but the non-survival of the non-fittest. Removing oneself from the shallow end of the gene pool by the most amusing and picturesque methods are what it takes to qualify. There are some very worthy candidates out there.
Go to the horse's mouth and see just how gormless people can be.
