7. Darwin Awards
A throwback to Kelso's contest from a few years ago.
Show someone unintentionally killing themselves in the most ironic way
possible.

If you don't know what planking is, it's the act of lying stiff like a board in very strange places (i.e. a car, a fence, a tree). It's a little ridiculous and this creation shows you why you should be more careful when doing it.
My first idea was the inventor of the segway dying on a segway, but I looked up examples of Darwin Awards and found some involving planking, then embellished on the idea.










I'll try to squeeze in a few more MOcathalon creations, thanks a lot for checking this out.

The segway thing is ironic because the guy who owned the company (not the actual inventor) died when he drove his segway off of a 60-foot cliff. Anyway, nice MOC. :P
