Does he want to work his way up to a Darwin Award?

Teen Trying to Kill Snake Shoots Himself. Good old American ingenuity. He can’t win a Darwin, since his stupidity isn’t fatal, but this definitely qualifies as an up-and-coming candidate.

A snake in the grass is to blame for a teenager shooting himself in the leg, police said. A 16-year-old boy was mowing his lawn Tuesday when he saw a snake slithering toward his dogs, which were chained in the front yard, police said. Worried about the canines, the boy ran inside and grabbed a .22-caliber pistol, said Port Wentworth police Sgt. Loren Scholes. The boy came back outside and when he saw the snake at his feet, he hastily aimed and fired. The bullet entered his right calf and exited near his heel, Scholes said.
