Daily Darwin – Darwin’s Warning

Now I don’t know about you little Darwins, but it would take some twisted mind to come up with that use for a screwdriver.

Daily Darwin – Piss Viper

A “farmer urinating in a field is left in agony after a snake bites him on the penis.”

TheDailyMail.com reports that:

The 46-year-old came to the emergency room of a hospital in Sringar, in the northern state of Jammu and Kasmir, three hours after suffering the bite.

Although the man was stable, his penis was ‘grossly swollen’, and covered in fluid-filled blisters where the snake’s teeth had entered, said doctors describing his case in the New England Journal of Medicine.
