    Darwin Awards....

    Sorry if any of you are the ones mentioned in any of harm intended.

    Yes, it's that magical time of the year again when the Darwin Awards are
    bestowed, honoring the least evolved among us...or is it those who most
    interestingly remove themselves from the gene pool? Here is the
    glorious winner for 2003:

    1. When his 38-calibre revolver failed to fire at his intended victim
    during a holdup 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 Honorable Mentions:

    2. The chef at a hotel in Switzerland lost a finger in a meat-cutting
    machine and, after a little hopping around, submitted a claim to
    his insurance company. The company, suspecting negligence, sent out one
    of its men to have a look for himself. He tried the machine and lost a
    finger. The chef's claim was approved!

    3. A man who shoveled 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.

    4. After stopping for drinks at an illegal bar, a Zimbabwean bus driver
    found that the 20 mental patients he was supposed to be transporting from
    Harare to Bulawayo had escaped. Not wanting to admit his incompetence,
    the driver went to a nearby bus stop and offered everyone waiting there a
    free ride. He then delivered the passengers to the mental hospital,
    telling the staff that the patients were very excitable and prone to
    bizarre fantasies. The deception wasn't discovered for 3 days.

    5. An American teenager was in the hospital recovering from serious head
    wounds received from an oncoming train. When asked how he received the
    injuries, the lad told police that he was simply trying to see how close
    he could get his head to a moving train before he was hit.

    6. A man walked into a Louisiana Circle-K, put a $20 bill on the counter,
    and asked for change. When the clerk opened the cash drawer, the man
    pulled a gun and asked for all the cash in the register, which the clerk
    promptly provided. The man took the cash from the clerk and fled, leaving
    the $20 bill on the counter. The total amount of cash he got from the
    drawer...$15. (If someone points a gun at you and gives you money, is a
    crime committed?)

    7. A thief burst into a Florida bank one day wearing a ski mask and
    carrying a gun. Aiming his gun at the guard, the thief yelled, "FREEZE,
    MOTHER-STICKERS, THIS IS A **** UP!" For a moment, everyone was silent.
    Then the snickers started. The security guard completely lost it and
    doubled over laughing. It probably saved his life, because he'd been
    about to draw his gun. He couldn't have drawn and fired before the thief
    got him. The thief ran away and is still at large. In memory of the
    event, the banker later put a plaque on the wall engraved with the words,
    "Freeze, mother-stickers, this is a ****-up!"

    8. Seems an Arkansas guy wanted some beer pretty badly. He decided that
    he'd just throw a cinderblock through a liquor store window, grab some
    booze, and run. So he lifted the cinder block and heaved it over his head
    at the window. The cinderblock bounced back and hit the would-be thief on
    the head, knocking him unconscious. The liquor store window was made of
    Plexiglas. The whole event was caught on videotape.

    9. As a female shopper exited a New York convenience store, a man grabbed
    her purse and ran. The clerk called 911 immediately, and the woman was
    able to give them a detailed description of the snatcher. Within
    minutes, the police apprehended the snatcher. They put him in the car and
    drove back to the store. The thief was then taken out of the car and told
    to stand there for a positive ID. To which he replied, "Yes, officer,
    that's her. That's the lady I stole the purse from."

    10. The Ann Arbor News crime column reported that a man walked into a
    Burger King in Ypsilanti, Michigan, at 5 a.m., flashed a gun, and
    demanded cash. The clerk turned him down because he said he couldn't open
    the cash register without a food order. When the man ordered onion
    rings, the clerk said they weren't available for breakfast. The man,
    frustrated, walked away.


    11. When a man attempted to siphon gasoline from a motor home parked on a
    Seattle street, he got much more than he bargained for. Police arrived at
    the scene to find a very sick man curled up next to a motor home near
    spilled sewage. A police spokesman said that the man admitted to trying
    to steal gasoline and plugged his siphon hose into the motor home's
    sewage tank by mistake. The owner of the vehicle declined to press
    charges, saying that it was the best laugh he'd ever had.
