So the Darwin award is only if you kill yourself, right?

So what's this?

(direct from the closed caption capture)

[5:14:45]  a careless customer is being
[5:14:46]  blamed for destroying mexico's
[5:14:47]  most famous fireworks market.
[5:14:48]  most of the fireworks market
[5:14:51]  was engulfed in flames,
[5:14:52]  setting off a chain reaction of
[5:14:55]  explosions.
[5:14:55]  vendors say a customer who had
[5:14:57]  just bought fireworks,
[5:15:09]  lit one and threw it.
[5:15:09]  about stands and 23 trucks were
[5:15:10]  destroyed in a series of
[5:15:11]  explosions that reduced the
[5:15:11]  huge fireworks complex to a
[5:15:12]  ple of rubble.
[5:15:12]  three people were seriously
[5:15:13]  hurt.

It's an Honorable Mention. They've got that category, too.
Yeah, you have to remove yourself from the gene pool in order to qualify for the Darwin. However this person sounds like he's got the potential to Darwinize himself at any given moment, so there's hope.
Where "remove yourself from the gene pool" can also mean sterilize yourself, preferably before you've successfully reproduced.
In a slightly different vein, it also fits the definition of Comedy. If it had come into a Darwin Award, that would just be the bonus. :)
I know it was dangerous and people were seriously injured, but...

...but I would have really liked to have seen that.
Me too.
"What's this?"

A found poem, if nothing else ...
You are so right.
