Rants, Raves, & Random Thoughts

Shameless self-promotion of my writing skills or lack there of.

It’s time for another installment of The Darwin Awards.

(19 August 2007, Serbia) It's well known that alcohol impairs judgement. It's well known that carnivorous wild animals and humans don't mix well. What happens when we combine all three? One might expect a concoction of men, bears, and beer to have lethal consequences. Such was the case for a 23-year old man who inadvertently fed himself to Masha and Misha at the Belgrade Zoo.

The Zoo director said of the incident, "Only an idiot would jump into the bear cage."

The man's naked, mauled corpse was found inside the bear habitat, along with several mobile phones, bricks and stones, and plenty of beer cans. His clothes were completely undamaged, suggesting that he approached the bears naked. They may have feared that his intentions were not honorable. Certainly, his intentions were ill-informed.

Masha and Misha "reacted angrily" when keepers tried to recover the man's corpse, but were eventually persuaded to give up their tasty prize. We await word on how many beers were bartered for the body.
