Another contender for the Darwin Awards was the German burglar who tried to blow up a condom machine to steal the contents but was hit by a piece of flying metal from the explosion and was killed.
In Maria's FB post you might have seen that Una and Bernie got some new pool toys this year - a huge swan and a big goose. These are obviously the new craze this year. Since Christmas four people have been rescued from these swans - but in a true example of the Darwin Awards the people who were rescued had taken swans designed for a suburban swimming pool and used them in the wild - if you count Auckland beaches as wild. But separate incidents at different beaches - silly.While the Divers inflatables were used as gladiator swan and goose they did not get let loose from confines of pool.
