Yes, it’s that magical time of year again when the Darwin Awards are bestowed, honouring the least evolved among us.
Here is the glorious winner:
*1. When his 38 calibre revolver failed to fire at his intended victim during a hold-up in Long Beach , California , would-be robber James Elliot did something that can only inspire wonder. He peered down the barrel and tried the trigger again. This time it worked.
And now, the honourable mentions:
2. The chef at a hotel in Switzerland lost a finger in a meat-cutting machine and after a little shopping around, submitted a claim to his insurance company. The company expecting negligence sent out one of its men to have a look for himself. He tried the machine and he also lost a finger.
The chef’s claim was approved.
3. A man who shovelled snow for an hour to clear a space for his car during a blizzard in Chicago returned with his vehicle to find a woman had taken the space. Understandably, he shot her.
En in die Oosrand oefen die ouens vir die wêreldbeker sokker. Omdat kinders wat speel se kleililat klei per ongeluk op `n hengelaar beland, word `n jong man deur 11 sterk mans dood geskop.
Dit is nie seker of die skoppers doelskoppe wou oefen, en of hulle vir die hooligan trofee ge-oefen het nie.
