    Darwin Award.
    not funny, just truth- this is how the herd is thinned.
    i just don't understand why the mom couldn't take the kid to the store with her like my parents did every single time until my mid teens.

    So the kid's friend says he's a fan of Jeff Hardy and the WWE is supposed to be blamed somehow? Apparently the media thinks Jeff uses a parachute while doing the Swanton.

    Darwin award or not, I feel sorry for the family.

    Jumping off a roof with a home made parachute? Oh it was a kid, quick blame video games and wrestling.

    Remember Jeff Hardy did that 13 Story-Diving-Plastic-Parachute-Moonsault the other night on Smackdown?

    A little over the top I say. A normal kid would have tried it by jumping off his bed first :/.

    Apparently doing a swan dive off a turnbuckle in a game is the same as parachuting off a building in real life.

    That's pretty damn creative the way she managed to get video games AND wrestling in there.

    As a parent, I feel very sorry for the family and there's really nothing funny about this thread.
