^Sad that she had no one to help her. RIP to the pair of them.

I once helped Medevac a guy who had circumcised himself.
Lots of blood but no loss of life.
He may even have gone on later to pro-create - so no awards, just a hearty round of applause.

Another successful application (or two) of Darwin's theory...

Fusing Anglo-Welsh relations. Literally.
10/10 for Darwinism.

Good spot.

Jaffa Cakes!

Sorry the link is to the Daily Fail, but I felt it serious enough to warrant sharing!

Looking for an evening rush hour forecast? You can expect...

No Darwin Award, plus ....

I know that Ms. Gaskin, the poor lass who tried to swallow all those Jaffa cakes, had to have been a bit stupid to begin with, but "five days in a coma before anyone noticed a difference in her brain functions" stupid? Or is that just gibberish from the Daily Mail again?

Anyway, she already had a child, so no Darwin Award for her.

Next, please!

Whoever had copulated with her clearly wasn't a Jaffa.

Need to sharpen up their attempt a little more, but certainly showing promise:

Apologies for the Daily Mail link

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...-gun-club.html
A 15-year-old girl from Iowa has died after she accidentally shot herself at a gun club on an outing with her father, officials said.

According to the Lee County Sheriff's Office, deputies and medics were called around 10.40am on Sunday to the Tri-State Gun Club outside Montrose, a community about 80 miles south of Iowa City.
Got to feel sorry for the father though.

Must be every fathers nightmare. Like taking your kid on a driving lesson and they end up dead.

The emergency crews found Haley Elizabeth McManus suffering from a single gunshot wound.

Well he was a bit of a live wire, short on watts but ample in other respects. Was it a pole volt? No charge for these puns...

Where does a 22 year old:

The car crashed at 11.30pm on 30 September 2018 as the pair, who were both from Stoke-on-Trent, were travelling home after a shift at a takeaway.
