Dumbass of the day
The only thing disqualifying him from winning a Darwin Award is that he didn’t die. (Independent):
Trevor Corneliusen, a 26-year-old musician and amateur painter, can surely now understand what it means to be a slave to his art. How better to describe his ordeal this week when he shackled his ankles then realised he had lost the key? This might have been merely a minor inconvenience but for one detail. Mr Corneliusen was in a California desert at the time. In fact, he was in an abandoned silver-mine in Death Valley, which has claimed many lives.
We should think of a better name for this kind of an award (for the dolts that manage to live); any suggestions, inspirations?
