Because Humor Is Good

Every once in a while it’s good to break from the serious for a laugh.  Sadly, sometimes that happens at someone else’s expense–which, I suppose, proves the idea that you can learn a lot about who you want to be by realizing who you DON’T want to be.  Like these guys, the winners of the 2009 Darwin Award:

The city of Dinant is the backdrop for this rare Double Darwin Award. Two bankrobbers attempting to make a sizeable withdrawal from an ATM died when they overestimated the quantity of dynamite needed for the explosion. The blast demolished the building the bank was housed in. Nobody else was in the building at the time of the attack.

Robber One was rushed to the hospital with severe head trauma; he died shortly after arrival. Investigators initially assumed that his accomplice had managed a getaway, but the second bungler’s body was excavated from the debris twelve hours later. Would-be Robbers One and Two weren’t exactly impoverished–their getaway car was a BMW.

The BMW is really the critical detail, don’tcha think?   Have a laugh, and a good day tomorrow!
