I found this book hilarious. now I know better than to speak ill of the dead but come on. most of these people really asked for it. What in the world WERE they thinking? Light and easy read.

Oh my goodness, such a good light read for when your waiting for the doctors or simply just passing time. these stories are pretty funny and leave wondering why some people simply don't think before they act.

Even though this is an earlier version of the Darwin Awards, it sure tickled my funny bone, for light reading or just a laugh this is a must.

Hysterical. Great for anyone who has a decent sense of humor or may need a pick-me-up. Vol II and III are just as good.

Funny! This book details many "lucky" winners who have won a Darwin Award for taking themselves out of the gene pool by their own stupidity. These people have been killed doing the most stupid and thoughtless things that you can imagine any human being doing. Even gives the sources of the information so you can get more info if you wish. Some of these made me laugh out loud to myself.
