Just when you thought it was safe to leave the house...brand new DARWIN AWARDS, the bestselling humour series that honours those people who improve the human gene pool by inadvertently removing themselves from it in sublimely idiotic ways. The sheriff who inadvertently shot himself TWICE...the artist who strung a "shell" necklace of live ammunition...the parachute instructor who forgot his own parachute when he jumped out of the plane...the man who put his ear against the rail tracks to listen for the arrival of a train and was killed by an incoming express. With over 100 brand-new awards winners, this collection of magnificent misadventures and macabre mishaps is the must-have humour title for the holiday season and beyond.
