I have to agree with Jake, blatant stupidity during the commission of a crime doesn't really qualify for the Darwin Award. If one of them had been seriously injured or killed then I think they would qualify.
I think these people should just be on COPS as a filler segment of "Most Stupid Criminals".
Now if they had shot each other with a Crossbow or used a JATO strapped to a car or something similarly stupid to commit the crime then they may qualify.
As far as the idiots who got caught on the Dine n' Dash they needed to go more than a few hundred yards away from the Denny's (must be really desperate). Probably both took off together, dummies.
Agreed. The injured individual apparently survived, and they made no mention of damage to the family jewels. I withdraw the nomination.
The only good thing I'd say for the Denny's bozos is that at least they stole food. Far too many robberies are for cash (or negotiable goods like used TVs) to pay for drug habits. These guys may or may not have been junkies, but they put their stomachs first. Bravo for that at least.
