About 1966 I was on the way back to my Grand parents place, in the back of my parents VW bug.

My dad saw this corpulent beaver beside the road and thought that he could drop a rock on it's skull and claim the prize (it's pelt) for his Mother-In-Law (it was Mother's Day).

About 45 minutes later my Dad showed up roadside, soaking wet, his pants in tatters and bleeding. He said later that he got $40 for the pelt, but that it was the hardest $40 he ever worked for.

He said that he feared for his life a couple of times. :)

I don't find this story funny at all. The unfortunate man wasn't intending to do the beaver any harm, he just wanted to have a picture taken. He was very unlucky in that the beaver's teeth severed an artery in his thigh. As for the story above about dropping a rock on a beaver's head to get its pelt - DISGUSTING!

It is not funny that he died. But.......

Everyone should know not to approach wild animals.

" you can not fix stupid "

I do not feel bad about making jokes when people die from stupidity.

It doesn't matter how or in what circumstances a person dies, stupid or otherwise, it is always a heart breaking event, (and in this case tragic as well), for their friends and family.

Yes it is heart breaking....

But as said, if it is from stupidity on their part, it is also fair game for jokes.....



27 February 2012, North Carolina) "It was just a freak incident," said an investigator, that caused the death of 43-year-old Gary Allen Banning. Gary was at a friend's apartment when he spotted a salsa jar containing a mystery fluid. Thinking that it was an alcoholic beverage, he helped himself to a sizeable swig of gasoline! Naturally enough, he immediately spit out the offending liquid onto his clothes. Then, to recover from the shock, Gary lit a cigarette.
Whoosh! Gas+Flame=Combustion.
Firefighters responded to calls reporting a fire in the apartment, and found a badly burned man sitting on a charred carpet. The following morning, Gasoline Gary died at the UNC Burn Center in Chapel Hill.
Two mistakes caused his death. The first mistake was minor: gulping a golden liquid from a salsa jar. Although Darwin Awards editors feel that a jar of yellow liquid is best left sealed, drinking its contents usually does not lead to combustion. But the second mistake--lighting up a cigarette to recover from the shock of taking a mouthful of gasoline--was a decision that an average five year old would consider questionable. As the late Bill Hicks said, "Darn, we lost another idiot."
Gary's friend was a mechanic and kept the jar of gasoline near the kitchen sink to remove grease from his hands.

"Great Balls Of Fire!" -Darren L.
"'Shine' is generally clear, so even by Carolina standards this is dumb." -Patrick T.
"The shrinking gene pool." -Nery M.
