Thinning the Herd

Tales Of The Weirdly Departed


Book Description

Dark humor about those who have removed themselves from the gene pool

An original and irreverent compendium of accidental deaths caused by astonishing stupidity, embarrassing irony and/or really bad luck, in the tradition of The Darwin Awards. Author Cynthia Ceilan includes details about:

*the hospital in India that faced a strange epidemic when patients kept dying
on Fridays – and then discovered the weekly housekeeper was disconnecting
life support systems in order to plug in her vacuum cleaner

*Conqueror Attila the Hun, who died of a nosebleed on his wedding night

*Jean-Louis Toubon, who choked to death on his girlfriend's edible panties

*and many more!
