In the bestselling tradition of The Onion's Our Dumb Century, The Darwin Awards shows readers just how uncommon common sense can be. One of the most popular Internet humor sites today--with 350.000 visitors a month & growing--DarwinAwards.com has dedicated itself to commemorating those who ensure the long-term survival of our species by eliminating themselves in a sublimely idiotic fashion from our gene pool. Winners of the Darwin Award are self-selecting: their single-minded determination to snuff themselves by spectacular means makes them candidates. With stories verified by the author & voted on by the site's readers. The Darwin Awards presents the finest examples of evolution in action, including:. The man who used a cigarette lighter to check the level of a gasoline can. The surfers who celebrated a hurricane by throwing a beachfront party & getting washed out to sea. The absent-minded terrorist who opened a mail bomb returned to him for insufficient postage. Like The Onion before it. DarwinAwards.com has a rabid, grassroots fan base eager for a book version of their favorite Web site. Filled with the winners, honorable mentions, & urban legends from Darwin Awards of years past, as well as new, never before seen material. The Darwin Awards has the pedigree to become the gift book of choice for holidays & the first must-have humor title of the twenty-first century. Named in honor of Charles Darwin, the father of evolution, the Darwin Awards commemorate those who improve our gene pool by removing themselves from it, showing us just how uncommon common sense can be. Meet the absentminded terrorist who opens a mail bomb returned to him for insufficient postage. Marvel at the thief who steals electrical wires without shutting off the current. Gape at the would-be pilot who flies his lawn chair suspended from helium balloons into air traffic lanes. And learn from the man who peers into a gasoline can using a cigarette lighter. All four contend for Darwin Awards when their choices culminate in magnificent misadventures. These tales of trial and awe-inspiring error, verified by the author and endorsed by website readers, illustrate the ongoing saga of survival of the fittest in all its selective glory. Including new material never seen before, as well as favorite award winners from years past, The Darwin Awards vividly portrays the finest examples of evolution in action. One of the most popular Internet humor sites today -- with 350,000 visitors a month and growing -- DarwinAwards.com has dedicated itself to commemorating those who ensure the long term survival of our species by eliminating themselves in a sublimely idiotic fashion from our gene pool.

With stories verified by the author and voted on by the site's readers -- from the surfers who celebrate a hurricane by throwing a beachfront party and getting washed out to sea, to the hunter who throws a lit stick of dynamite for his faithful golden retriever to fetch and return to him -- and filled with the winners, honorable mentions, and urban legends from Darwin Awards of years past, as well as new, never before seen material, "The Darwin Awards" has the pedigree to become the gift book of choice for the holidays and the first must-have humor title of the 21st century.
