What are the Darwin Awards?

The Darwin Awards are a satirical honor that recognizes individuals who have supposedly contributed to human evolution by selecting themselves out of the gene pool by dying or becoming sterilized via their own actions.

The Darwin Awards are not meant to be taken seriously, and they are often used to highlight the dangers of foolish or reckless behavior.

The Darwin Awards are named after Charles Darwin, the father of evolution.

The Darwin Awards website was created in 1993 by Wendy Northcutt.

The Darwin Awards have been featured in numerous books, articles, and television shows.

The Darwin Awards are a controversial topic, with some people arguing that they are disrespectful to the dead.
