Dumb Ways to Die by Tangerine Kitty

Set fire to your hair
Poke a stick at a grizzly bear
Eat medicine that's out of date
Use your private parts as piranha bait

Dumb ways to die
So many dumb ways to die
Dumb ways to di-ie-ie
So many dumb ways to die

Get your toast out with a fork
Do your own electrical work
Teach yourself how to fly
Eat a two-week-old un-refrigerated pie


Invite a psycho-killer inside
Scratch a drug dealer's brand new ride
Take your helmet off in outer space
Use a clothes dryer as a hiding place


Keep a rattlesnake as a pet
Sell both your kidneys on the Internet
Eat a tube of superglue
I wonder, what's this red button do?


Dress up like a moose during hunting season
Disturb a nest of wasps for no good reason
Stand on the edge of a train station platform
Drive around the boom gates at a level crossing
Run across the tracks between the platforms

They may not rhyme but they're quite possibly
The dumbest ways to die
The dumbest ways to die
The dumbest ways to di-ie-ie-ie
So many dumb
So many dumb ways to die

Be safe around trains... a message from Metro

This song could have been written by the fresnels. It reminds me of one of our stupid songs back in the day. I'm sure many people love this song. I have a hard time believing that sticking a fork in the toaster would kill you. Maybe back in the 50's that may have been true. But in a world of law suits it seems rather foolish for people to sell items of potential death. I mean if your toast gets stuck in the toaster the first item in a kitchen you would think to use to get it out is a fork. I'm sure there would be thousands of deaths a year.

I saw an interview with a dude who was a product tester for companies as they were getting ready to launch new products. His job as to think of all the possible ways a person could possibly kill themselves with a product so that warnings could be written. The interviewer was that's not necessary is it? I mean are people really that dumb? The dude was like, Oh no. When you are releasing a product to millions of people someone somewhere will figure out a way to accidentally kill themselves with it.

This song is a public service announcement from the metro train system in Sydney or someplace where dumb asses were getting run over by the train. There is also an accompanying game you can download for your cell phone that is very entertaining.

This song is indeed like a fresnels song.

Dude. You need to test the toaster. Turn it on and stick a fork in it and tell me what happens

You it is you who will die the funny death not me. I will die pathetically.

This is definitely Fresnels-ish, and what a picture it paints. This makes me think of the Darwin awards, and the power of natural selection. Just how smart is the average american? Are we considered a cut above, or is there a soft underbelly of americans that are just waiting to be snuffed out by everyday objects that most people find non-threatening?

I've always wanted to find a job as a product tester, but I want to be the tester that has to find out what it takes to break the products. They put you in a room with the product and then you test its durability by methodically destroying it. What a great job, and you would carry no stress in your life, because you would release it everyday as you pulverized products.
