The Darwin Awards are a manifestation of Internet humor. They are a tribute to those members of the species Homo sapiens who have generously contributed to the well-being of the gene pool by removing themselves from it. This is optimally done in a spectacularly stupid fashion: the more imbecilic the cause of premature demise, the better the chances of an individual scooping the big prize. Although some of the better-known Darwin award recipients have proven to be ficticious (see Urban legends), the exploits of a great many award winners have been independantly verified from original source material.
