Thinning the Herd
Tales of the Weirdly Departed
Dark humour about those who have removed themselves from the gene pool.
An irreverent compendium of accidental deaths caused by astonishing stupidity, embarrassing irony and/or really bad luck, including:
- 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
In the tradition of The Darwin Awards, Thinning the Herd is an hilarious gift for those who like black humour.
