Well folks, we have a solid candidate for the 2012 Darwin Awards courtesy of Randy Lee Tenley in Montana. He was an avid Sasquatch/Bigfoot hoaxer, having been sighted before in 2009 by two men in Minnesota. Sunday night, his activities caught up to him when he was struck by two consecutive vehicles on Highway 93 South in Kalispell, MT.

According to Montana Highway Patrol, Tenley was walking down the highway in a military ghillie suit, commonly worn as camouflage to blend in with vegetation. Obviously, given his costume and the timing of his Bigfoot excursion, Mr. Tenley wasn't exactly visible on the road to passing drivers.
That does it. This guy's dumb ass and idiotic adventures is evidence enough that we need another plague. The sheer amount of stupidity involved says enough. The police interviewed his friends, who didn't seem too shocked to hear about him walking on a busy highway at night, completely ghillied up and practically begging for something like this to happen. Congrats Randy, I think you've won this year's Darwin Award. Survival of the effing fittest, and you were the weakest link.
PS - The fact he was hit by two cars consecutively makes me think of Meet Joe Black. So enjoy this clip and watch it over and over like I have been for the last ten minutes. Which may - or may not - explain the strange looks I am getting from co-workers for my maniacal laughter.
