So much for packing a, um, rod
New York Post ^ | September 8, 2009 | JAMIE SCHRAM

Posted on 09/11/2009 12:31:30 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement

It's a lesson he should have learned from Plaxico Burress -- but this was worse.

A 15-year-old Brooklyn boy shot himself in the penis Sunday after fumbling with a gun that had slid from his waistband, authorities said yesterday.

Khamir Grant was then arrested for reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon -- the same charges levied against Burress, who shot himself at a Manhattan nightclub in 2008, law-enforcement sources said.

I think you have another Ping for the Mangled Genital Ping List.

BTW, Can you add me to the list?

Idiot. I never carry a pistol unless it’s in a holster that covers the trigger.

I really wish stories like this would say exactly what kind of gun the imbecile shot himself with. Every time I hear one of these, I can't for the life of me understand how they manage this.

It would be impossible for me to "accidentally " shoot myself with my Beretta 92fs, unless I was carrying it chambered, cocked, safety off, and I was also unaware that the trigger is what makes it go bang.

Anybody that incredibly stupid deserves to shoot themselves in the junk.

Rule number one of firearms ownership: Never point a loaded firearm at your own d***. Ever. And that includes carrying that firearm around by shoving it down your pants.

It's looking like a bad day for penises.

(On the bright side, though, we may just see that rarest of creatures - a living Darwin Award nominee.)

Probably a Jennings “nine”...and I can see how it would be hard to carry a pistol around in your pants when you probably can’t even hold your baggy pants up...

That is an unfortunate requirement, because it is not accurate.
Effectively, any dumb act that prevents a person from reproducing should qualify.

And here's another twist - even if dead, the person must have died before reproducing.

No, the candidate must be unable to reproduce. This usually means dead, but this case may be a rare exception. (I say may be because we don't know if it was restored to full functionality.)

Yes, that twist is correct. The award goes to someone who has died as a result of their nominating action and has done so before reproducing, thus removing their genes from the gene pool and thereby becoming extinct.

http://www.darwinawards.com/rules/

So how are the Darwin Awards actually determined?

Nominees significantly improve the gene pool by eliminating themselves from the human race in an obviously stupid way. They are self-selected examples of the dangers inherent in a lack of common sense, and all human races, cultures, and socioeconomic groups are eligible to compete. Actual winners must meet the following criteria:

Reproduction
Out of the gene pool: dead or sterile.
Excellence
Astounding misapplication of judgment.
Self-Selection
Cause one’s own demise.
Maturity
Capable of sound judgment.
Veracity
The event must be true.

* Whizzing on an electric wire
* Smoking in an oxygen tent
* Being hit by a train or automobile
* Aerosol cans, etc., in the oven
* Climbing into zoo cages
* Falling off precipice while posing or pissing
* Carbon monoxide poisoning
* Most autoerotic deaths
* all too common!

Killing others: The death of innocent bystanders absolutely rules out a Darwin Award. We don’t applaud those who take others out of the gene pool, even if they share some DNA in common.

Possible ... depends on how serious the damage to Mr. (un)Happy.

Guys, it's called a "holster". You put your pistol in it, so that things like this don't happen.

The Darwin Awards site has rules that are somewhat confusing...it states

"Actual winners must meet the following criteria:", which to me implies all of the criteria. It then itemizes:

"Reproduction Out of the gene pool: dead or sterile," implying that sterility alone is a qualifier, but then later specifies:

"Self-Selection Cause one's own demise."

IMHO, it seems some clarification is needed to deconflict the implications of the above criteria. While it would seem that the letter of the rules mandates the candidate must be deceased, the spirit of the rules suggests that rendering one's self incapable of reproduction would be adequate.
