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

That’s right, it is time for another installment of The Darwin Awards.

(8 March 2008, Florida) Just because you see it online does not mean it's a good idea. Cameron, 18, was joyriding in a shopping cart as he held onto a moving SUV. An eyewitness said, "It's irresponsible behavior, but what do you expect from these kids nowadays?" (Probably the same old bugger who sits on his front porch and yells, “get off my lawn!”) The car and the cart went over a speed bump and the cart overturned, ejecting its occupant, who was clearly not wearing the little seat belt that comes standard on all shopping carts. Cameron was pronounced dead at the scene.

Nah, the old guy was just letting nature weed itself out. Remember Darwin's Survival of the Fittest? That old guy knew the score and was just biding his time until little jimmie bit the dust.

The big Dumb head.

lol, Kelly. You're probably right.

lol you're right, Lime, but I couldn't help but throw that in there. :D

I'm glad to hear it, Lime. I've actually been trying to log in to add "I will possess your heart" by Death Cab for Cutie all morning, but for some reason it won't let me. :( I've contacted tech support, but we'll just have to see...

Didn't have 2 brain cells to rub together. Doesn't now and that's for sure! Speed bump, indeed!

Yes indeed, Carrie. I remember it making the news. :D
