One of the most popular Internet humour sites today -- with 350,000 visitors a month and growing -- has dedicated itself to commemorating those who ensure the long term survival of our species by eliminating themselves in a sublimely idiotic fashion from our gene pool. Winners of the Darwin Award are self-selecting; their single-minded determination to snuff themselves by spectacular means make them candidates. With stories verified by the author and voted on by the site's readers -- from the surfers who celebrate a hurricane by throwing a beachfront party and getting washed out to sea, to the hunter who throws a lit stick of dynamite for his faithful golden retriever to fetch and return to him -- and filled with the winners, honorable mentions, and urban legends from Darwin Awards of years past, as well as new, never before seen material, "The Darwin Awards" has the pedigree to become the gift book of choice for the holidays and the first must-have humor title of the 21st century.
