Felonious Failures (Darwin Awards)

by

Felonious Failures (Darwin Awards) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When it comes to criminals, Darwin wades in the shallow end of the gene pool. Witness the astonishing idiocy of the absent-minded terrorist who opens a letter-bomb returned for insufficient postage, or the thief who steals electrical wire without shutting off the current, or the man who saws off his own leg to collect insurance. This collection of cautionary tales proves that crime does pay . . . a genetic dividend!

Synopsis:

Named in honor of the father of evolution, the Darwin Awards comemorate those who improve the genetic pool by removing themselves from it. Offered now are new miniature editions.

About the Author

Wendy Northcutt started collecting the stories that make up the Darwin Awards in 1993, and founded www.DarwinAwards.com soon thereafter. She has been profiled in Salon magazine, and now divides her time between managing the website and working as an internet consultant. Her award-winning website is one of the most popular humor sites on the web today, with over 400,000 visitors a month and growing. It has received acclaim from USA Today, the BBC, and Yahoo!, and was chosen as a Cool Site of the Year 2000.
