Watson Award
When somebody does something so asinine that it puts their health and the health of their friends at risk. What

at one time seemed like a perfectly wise and humorous exercise quickly unfolds into near traumatic meltdown of epic proportion. Think Darwin, but not in the sense of reproduction or evolution.

When driving down a perfectly beautiful mountain road, one decides that a sparsely cleared, treacherously rocky, pine-cone encrusted jeep trail to the right seems like a logical route for a Subaru Forester to explore at 60 miles per hour. Screeching brakes, 100ft skid, flailing arms, wailing voices, mountains of dust, and a pine cone later, the car is humbling and hysterically unloaded to replace the right front wheel because a pine cone sliced a 1-inch gash in the sidewall. This deserves a Watson Award for sheer stupidity that ultimately led to endless laughter and ridicule.
