Darwin toekennings 2010
Februarie 5, 2010 by Louwie
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.
