Dumb Ways to Die Pledge

It’s December and it’s mistletoes and glitter dust for me. I can forget about my day job alright. This morning, I am to welcome December with you with morbid, but cutesy thoughts in my head.

I was watching YouTube videos because I can. (Yeeeeahhhh! We switched to Globe DSL. So hello, faster internet connection!) Then, I this video thumbnail caught my attention. Thanks to the colorful half-sausages characters. The video is called Dumb Ways to Die. You would probably scratch your head why I have associated the word ‘cutesy’ with death. Well, watch the video for yourself.

Here’s the lyrics, babe.

Dumb Ways to Die
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Eat medicine that’s out of date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 die-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 unrefrigerated pie
Dumb ways to die
So many dumb ways to die
Dumb ways to die-ie-ie 
So many dumb ways to die
Invite a psycho-killer inside
Scratch a drug dealer’s brand new ride
Take your helmet off in outer space
Use your clothes dryer as a hiding place
Dumb ways to die
So many dumb ways to die
Dumb ways to die-ie-ie
So many dumb ways to die
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?”
Dumb ways to die
So many dumb ways to die 
Dumb ways to di-ie-ie-ie 
So many dumb ways to die
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 die-ie-ie-ie
So many dumb
So many dumb ways to die

The video’s message, apparently is to be safe around trains. The message is brought to you by (c) Metro Trains. Well, this reminds me of the book I bought early this year, The Darwin Awards Next Evolution. The book compiles the funny/stupid/morbid death of errr, unfortunate people. You should read it so that you wouldn’t belong into the gene pool of these people.

I swear to get the plug of the white Christmas lights that surround my bed before going to bed. Just in case. How about you? What is your Dumb-way-to-die pledge? Be safe, guys!
