Marie-Eve writes: I would like to submit a friend's accident to the Darwin
Awards Supreme Court. He doesn't deserve First Prize, but hopefully he
could reach the level of special mention. Let's call him David.
David broke his arm because he fell on a dog, which is already quite silly. The hospital applied a resin cast. That same evening he went to a party and after a few hours and a few drinks, friends found it funny to customize David's cast with imaginative pornographic drawings. The next morning David's mother discovered the artwork. After his father stopped shouting, David--who is not exactly the DIY type--tried to erase the shameful drawings with 'white spirit'. He didn't realize that this corrosive product would spread through the resin gauze and burn his skin deeply. After a few hours of abominable pain, David decided to break the resin with a hammer. He did it well. He broke the cast and managed to break his arm in another place!
Thank you for giving this submission the attention it deserves.
