Article: Darwin Nominee of the Year

Thanks to my friend for passing on this little gem:

ASUNCION, Paraguay (AP) -- A 13-year-old boy who entered an elephant's open-air cage to feed it a mango was crushed to death on Tuesday.

Guillermo Gonzalez got past a rock wall and two metal fences to reach the 4 1/2-ton elephant, named Maia, but the animal reacted violently, stomping the teenager to death before a trainer could intervene.

Bart was crushed to death in this episode.

Anyone else remember "Stampy" from the Simpsons? I wonder if someone will call for a ban on it like they did with Beavis and Butthead when some stupid kid set his house on fire.
