Idiot pointing gun up nose and pulling trigger -- yeah, kinda funny: keeps the rest of us from worrying what other stupid stuff he would have done that could have put others at risk. Fishing, drinking, and shooting - right outside the trailer park full of kids. Sounds like we lost a real responsible and productive member of society (sure, I'm being judgemental. it's the American way).

Woman suffering fatal jolt from sextoy -- no, not funny at all: just plain not funny.

Missouri still beats Texas in Darwin Awards:

Teen loses hand
Pipe bomb explodes early

By Joyce L. Miller

CLIMAX SPRINGS - A pipe bomb that went off prematurely severed the hand of a Robertville, Mo., man and left his brother with minor injuries from flying shrapnel.

According to the Camden County Sheriff's Department, Mark W. Mossoney, 19, and his brother David, 25, of St. Clair were visiting their grandfather in the Climax Springs area when the accident occurred.

Sheriff John Page said the men had put together a small pipe bomb that they were going to toss into a pond "for fishing purposes." Page said as the younger brother had ignited the bomb and was getting ready to throw it when it went off in his hand.

According to reports, the explosion removed Mark Mossoney's right hand at the wrist. He was airlifted to the University of Missouri Hospital and Clinics.

David Mossoney returned to St. Clair where he was treated and released for minor shrapnel wounds.

Page said the filing of formal charges is pending completion of an investigation by the sheriff's department.
