2007 Honorable Mention
Unconfirmed by Darwin

My dad worked in the kitchen at the local prison for years. One day an inmate stole a bag of jalepeno peppers in juice. Kitchen work is coveted by inmates because of these fringe benefits. He stuffed the plastic bag down the front of his pants. But as he attempted his getaway, the bag burst. In an attempt to cool the fires, the prisoner jumped into the shower. It was winter and there was only one water temperature: hot. This only made matters worse!

The inmate was quickly nicknamed "Crispy Balls."
