According the the long-running Darwin Awards site:
The Darwin Awards honor Charles Darwin by commemorating those who yield to natural selection and “remove” themselves from the gene pool…thereby ensuring that the next generation is fathered by one less idiot.
“Safety Last!” Of necessity, the award is usually bestowed posthumously.
Is it any wonder this guy won the Award de tutti Awards?
Nothing symbolizes the downfall of the human race like an actual down fall.
