This collects the latest batch of awards winners, and contains quite a few stories of such. they all run for either one or two pages, and the book is divided into eight chapters containing stories of incidents involving animals, explosives, weapons, and various other things potentially fatal in the hands of those with no sense.
Some of the stories are illustrated with cartoons, and each chapter has a science essay relating to the overall theme of the chapter [none of which will please creationists].
These books are good guilty pleasures. Probably not for the easily offended, but you're not laughing at people's misfortune, you're laughing at the fact that someone could be so stupid. A good read.
THE DARWIN AWARDS?
Charles Darwin apparently had several theories on the existence of human life. The most famous of his theories is his Theory on Evolution. Another one of his apparent theories (paraphrased) is that Stupidity Is Geneticly Inherited - Stupid People Will Either Remove Themselves From The Human Race, Or From The Gene Pool By A Simple Or Complex Act/Duty/Resonsibility/Task - Their Own Single-Handed And/Or Under-Handed Mission - Will Cause Them To Perish At Their Own Perils.
And for such a Great Performance they Win an Award in their Absence - THE DARWIN AWARDS - is presented in book form.
THE DARWIN AWARDS By WENDY NORTHCUTT is a book on a collective of true stories from around the world that have been verified to have had 'Grave' consequences (pardon the pun) on individual humans. The identities are hidden of course (I assume to savour the family and friends from the pain and hardship of ridicule).
You might recognise yourself in this book with one significant difference - you are lucky to be alive.
THE DARWIN AWARDS By WENDY NORTHCUTT comes as a series of books (1-5 so far).
The chapters are entitled and made up of subjects that we should all be familiar with:
Eg: Animals, Gender Issues, Technology, Water - to name but a few.
There is something humourous there for everyone - whatever the age group, genre, or beliefs you have or come from.
THE DARWIN AWARDS By WENDY NORTHCUTT should come with a government 'health & safety' warning stamped and embossed - 'Don't Let Us Read About You In The Next Edition Of "The Darwin Awards"'.
