Darwin Awards 2007!

Once again for all our ghoulish amusement, The Darwin Awards are out. For the sake of the uninitiated, the Darwin Awards are for those members of the community who find the most creative, idiotic ways to remove themselves from the gene pool, thus doing the rest of us, and society, a favor. The highlights:

1) A couple who attempted to have sex at the top of a pyramid-shaped building and fell to their death.

2) A man who died of alcohol poisoning - from an enema.

3) A woman who chose the worst possible moment to call down the elevator shaft to her mates, and was decapitated in the process.

And my personal favorite, the media group that went out, on foot, to investigate elephants which had been trampling people and, surprise, got trampled.
