And the Darwin Award Goes to…
Occasionally you see a story that can stand alone and little can be said to make it funnier. This might be one of those stories.
A hand grenade being used instead of a ball in a game of catch exploded early on Saturday killing three youths in this Bosnian town, police and news agencies said.
This might be topped only if they were playing Russian roulette with a semi automatic pistol. I wonder if this game of grenade catch will “catch” on here in the U.S. with our liberal war protestors.
The story leaves out whether they were Albanian or Serbian (I would make up better names for the three if I knew), but I think I can imagine the conversation leading up to this game of catch.
Bosnian 1: Go long!
Bosnian 2: What are you talking about? UNICEF didn’t give us a ball; just a piss poor back pack and some crayons.
Bosnian 1: No I found this in the back yard. It’s round enough. Just let me take off this metal thing hanging down on the side of it.
Bosnian 3: I’m not sure if you should do that. You don’t even know what it is.
Bosnian 1: Don’t be such a pansy. Here we’ll play American football. You play center and snap it to me. You run a slant right. There that metal thing is off. Ready, set, BOOM!
