Honoring Charles Darwin, the father of
evolution, Darwin Awards commemorate those who improve our gene
pool--by removing themselves from it in the most spectacular way possible.
Shopping Cart Crash
2008 Darwin Award Winner
Confirmed True by Darwin
(8 March 2008, Florida) Just because you see it online does not mean it's a
good idea. Cameron, 18, was joyriding in a shopping cart as he held onto a
moving SUV. An eyewitness said, "It's irresponsible behavior, but what do
you expect from kids?" The car and the cart went over a speed bump and the
cart overturned, ejecting its occupant, who was not wearing the little seat
belt. Cameron was pronounced dead at the scene.
