marked by a level of lack of intelligence and common sense so deep, so aberrant, so impossibly incurable
by any means whatsoever
(conventional or otherwise) eventually leading
the afflicted individual to perform some
act ensuring demise and subsequent enormous amounts of ridicule by society at large for decades to come.
In cases where
only the malignantly stupid subject him/herself falls victim
to an act leading
to self-extinction, nomination for a Darwin Award is in order, having removed themselves as potential polluters of the gene pool and propagation of malignant stupidity in future generations.
However, in cases where
an uninvolved or otherwise innocent party/parties
has the misfortune of being in close proximity
act, resulting in death or injury to said
party, the afflicted individual's qualification for a Darwin Award has been
annulled even if they themselves died in commission of said
suffered from malignant stupidity since childhood, one could
hear an audible sigh of relief
from the gene pool the day Steve decided it was a GOOD idea to use dynamite to make holes for ice fishing; he EARNED that Darwin Award, the hard way.
2. Steve lost his chance forevermore at receiving a Darwin Award when
it was discovered
that his brother
Jerry was fishing on the lake that day as well, unable to flee
for cover before the load exploded, cracking the ice, and Jerry fell in. It is truly a shame
that rescuers were
unable to find his body until the spring melt, although
they did manage
to scrape bits
and pieces of Steve off the ice.
