Hard Road to Fame
Last year had more than its share of celebrity deaths, names we were well acquainted with due to the person’s newsworthy deeds or misdeeds. But 2009 also hosted the passing of people who lived quietly and left, or were on track to leave, just as soundlessly when . . . something twisted happened.

There's a handful of Darwin Award worthy stories in there...

Some of these stories are hilarious.
I feel so sorry for the poor buck who was fooled by his own hormones. And to add insult to injury, his demise happened in the backyard of a deer hunter, no less. How embarassing.
Yeah, and he just thought it was hilarious, too. That was like the only story in there that I didn't find amusing.
I'm with you on that. Sad.
