Charles Darwin with a purple swarm around his head, contemplating the twist of fate that natural selection sidestepped these still-living honorable mentions.

2006 Honorable Mention

Next Prev Random Honorable Mentions have misadventures that stop short of the ultimate sacrifice. Nevertheless we salute the spirit of their colossal blunders with an Honorable Mention. Better luck next time!

Brothers Well Met
2006 Honorable Mention
Confirmed True by Darwin

Could it be genetic?

(October 2006, Maine) Two brothers, 17 and 18, were conversing on their cell phones when the vehicles they were driving met in a head-on collision. Nobody died, but both were injured. Oh look, the two young men were not even wearing seat belts! The innocent victims were two totalled cars: a 1994 Jeep Cherokee and a 1998 Ford pickup.

Darwin begs her readers to turn off those cell phones! Many times that erratic driver, we realize as we pass him, has a phone in his ear. YOU are just as erratic as THEY are, when you are on that phone. For your own safety, and for the safety of those around you, HANG UP! © 1994 - 2020
